Back to School Dinner

This marks the first time I have taken a photo with my cell phone and sent it from my phone to myself and actually posted it to a blog.  I am just becoming more and more techie all the time.  HAHAHA!!

Ok, with that out of the way, the above photo was taken last night after our traditional back-to-school dinner.  We had to move to the 2nd day of school because Johnny is coaching an Upward football team and he had practice Monday night.  But, we had all 3 kids with us so it was a bonus!  Yes, the college boy will still meet us for free food! 

It was a great night!  We had a nice dinner and great conversation.  Yes, we laughed hysterically at Jacob, as usual.  I am not kidding, he is a funny, funny kid.  We (Johnny and I) talked about our hopes and dreams for our kids for the year and our plan to challenge them this year.  I am looking forward to a great year!  We want to celebrate with our kids and support them, but also to never stop challenging them to do their best and be their best.  And, to never stop following God or seeking Him to be the guide and power in their lives. 

I hope you and your kids have had a great 1st few days of school!

Serving the King,

I just had to share this story, which you may have heard already. Mom said one of the office ladies, I can't remember which now, overheard some of the boys from Johnny's Upward team talking before practice:
Boy 1: "The preacher is your coach?"
Boy 2: "Yeah, that's what they said."
Boy 1: "Like is he going to wear shorts and everything?"
Then after practice:
Boy 1: "Was it the preacher?"
Boy 2: "Yeah, and there wasn't even any preaching!"
I may not have gotten this exactly, but pretty close. Thought it was hilarious!

Glad you & Johnny will be joining us for the Celebration of Life Dinner on October 1!

What a awesome challenge for the two of you to continue to challenge your kids. It gets a lot harder as they become adults. Keep up the good work. Love all of you guys....What a blessing you are. God is good all the time!
