A Few Pictures From TN and GA

Here are a few snapshots from our time in TN and GA.
Lillie, Elliott, and Jack got to ride on Gramp's lawn mower. I didn't catch a picture of Jack, but here are Lillie and Elliott.
Elliott playing with Freddy T.'s old truck "Smokey". It's a little blurry.
This was the first time I've ever taken all 3 kids into Walmart. I think it was Lillie and Elliott's first Walmart trip ever!
The reason for the trip was to buy a baby pool for my mom's patio. Here's how we got it home.
They LOVED playing in that little pool.
This is very random, but at my mom's Lillie got into my old curio cabinet and took out my first pair of ballet shoes and wore them around the house. She loved wearing them.
We took a trip with my Dad down to Georgia to visit my grandparents, aunt and uncle, and cousins. I hate that I didn't get a picture of my dad or my grandparents with the kids. I don't know what I was thinking. We were only there for about 2 days. Our full day there was spent around the pool at my aunt and uncles house. The kids had so much fun. Lillie and Elliott warmed up to the water pretty good. It was perfect preparation for the beach. Jack is a little more timid when it comes to pools. He takes his own sweet time getting comfortable. We had a major breakthrough that day though. Jack for the first time moved away from the pool steps. He was quite proud of himself, and so were we!
We left from GA on a Saturday morning, I rented a car for me and the kids to drive down to the beach in Florida for vacations with Freddy T.'s family. It was a 6 hour drive and I managed by myself. The kids were champions. We only stopped once and it was for a quick pee pee break and to walk around for a few minutes, other than that we kept moving along. I can't believe how smooth the drive went. This was us leaving my aunt and uncles house headed to Florida.
More pictures to come from our time in Florida.

I know ya'll don't really know me, but I love reading about your family and your ministry in NYC. I came up with SEBTS a couple of years ago and since then I've been hooked to the great people of New York. Please continue sharing all that God is doing there and maybe one day I can join you on mission!

So glad you are "blogging" again. I missed your updates. I could hear Jack's sweet voice when he was talking to John this afternoon. Loved the ballet slipper picture, as well as all the others. Love to all, Great Gran
