Drew on first

Jack the catcher

Jack playing catcher..his favorite position!

Drew batting

Drew & Jack are both playing ball this summer, so I'll spend many evenings at the baseball diamond watching my little men play ball.. A little more testosterone! I'm completely surrounded! Debbie...Help me!


My darling husband and his father went skydiving! I’m not sure why jumping out of an airplane is enticing to anyone, but clearly it is somehow related to testosterone. Here are some photos. (Yes…they all lived through the ordeal!)

Death is not Dying

Rachel & her family
My world was refocused this morning. My “eternal” wait to see my daughter now seems joyful, and even a gift. How did this occur? No… I’m no ill and I’m not insane, although teaching middle school can drive you to the brink! What happened was I listened to a speech given by a 37 year old wife and mother named Rachel who is dying of cancer. She only has 6-8 weeks left to live and the words God laid on her heart have fundamentally moved me, convicted me and changed me. I urge you to set aside the time to her what she has to say. It will forever leave you changed.

300 days!

We have officially been waiting 300 days today! ...and guess what? We'll still be waiting tomorrow. Waiting is clearly the name of this game. Humm... I guess God's teaching me to wait.

A Night Out

Last night, my friend and I took our kids to a concert. Here are some photos of our evening.

Our Kiddos
We were trying to get some photos of just the two of us last night, but my son kept poking his little head into all the photos. See if you can find him the pictures below. (It's kind of like "Where's Waldo!")
