Oh, hello, week! Let’s do this!

Have a good day at school, Mack!

Happy Autumn

Quick trip to Richmond to drop off painting class fliers and found this lonely tree

Stopped back by the coffee shop for a meeting and had a bit of time to plan out my week over a cup of Ethiopia.

My friend Loretta stopped by the Foundation, donating $200 from her Scentsy fundraiser, and hooking me up with an owl warmer! Thanks, Loretta!!

Skeleton Selfie

Stopped by the high school

Dropped in on the rehearsal for the upcoming musical, Willy Wonka

Many of our elementary school students are performing in the production, too!

Picked up Mack from her Practice 5k with Girls on the Run! She and her dad will run a 5k race in Kansas City on Saturday! She’s been working all season up to this point!

She got home and finished getting ready for her piano lessons. She had some extra time, so she decorated the page in Fall doodles

Mack and Sketch

I made us some chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight and Mackenzie rushed to help

Her drawing for the day was made using an old Spirograph

In keeping with tradition, we carved pumpkins on All Hallows’ Eve

Happy Halloween

It is well…with my soul…

Found Sketch hanging out in Mack’s room this morning

The first Elms Boulevard fountain freeze of the season!

Our friend Darryl Couts led Children’s Time at church this morning. Can you find Mackenzie in this pic?

This is my friend and pastor Laura Blevins. Each week she inspires us to be better, reminds us of God’s unconditional love, and motivates us to get involved in our community.

This morning she welcomed us all to come and revisit our baptisms. It was a moment I want to remember, walking down with S. Jason to pray.

Today our church was celebrating 25 years being in our new church building

Pastor Laura just had a little pumpkin, Noah, and it was nice to see them both this morning!

The bell choir practice is underway! Our church always has something musically special being planned!

The preschool is having fun with Fall!

We went and got some pumpkins of our own.

Kitty was enjoying laying in the warmth of the sun light coming through the window


Love these kiddos

Mackenzie found an old picture she drew when she was 7 years old.

And so she updated it! (The book she is using is one she made out of old cereal boxes given to her by Gail Brown)

Thanks for following along!


You have within you right now everything you need for whatever the world might throw your way.
