Church Camp for Tristan

 Well the day finally came when I let Tristan go to church camp!!! He has never been away from us like that for that long, it was 4 days and in another state!!!! But I knew he would love it and he did!!!
The Gang before they left...these really are a great bunch of boys!!!
Clayton, Tristan, Braxton, Tanner, Jayden, & Collin
Church Camp 2012

Braxton & Tristan ~ 11 Years
Me and Stacy have discussed several times about letting them go and finally the time was right!!!

Getting ready to load up for a long drive on a van with an air conditioner that didn't work well, fun times!!!

They had an awesome time, doing service work, small group bible study, worship time, and some free time, which was swimming, water blob's, and mechanical bull's!!! Tristan is beat up from that one!!! I think he would have stayed a little longer to be honest, but this mom was glad to have him back!!! I am just glad he had the chance to do something like this.
Thank you to all the great people who helped with camp!!!
He can't wait for next year!!!

Natural's Game

On the last day of school, we decided to take the kids to a Natural's game to kick off summer!!!

Tristan, Coop, and Madi Bell ready for some baseball!!!

Madi Bell with her foul ball signed by Strike. The gentlman beside us caught the ball actually, but gave it to Madi because he already had one, very nice.... :) She has it displayed on her dresser..

They won that evening and they had an awesome fireworks display afterwards!!!
Great start to summer!!!!

End of School Year 2012

    I can't believe another school year has past.... :( These kids are growing up way too fast!!! Tristan finished the year with some awards, he received a Citizenship award and Honors Roll for the year, we are so proud of him!!! He is an awesome student and I hope he continue's to take pride in exceling in school.
