Photos from my Phone Friday

As usual, I haven't gotten around to blogging lately, just a few pictures from the past few weeks.......
Lola celebrated her 13th birthday!
Crazy hair night at AWANA.
We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary!!
We went out for dinner and then to a comedy club.
Layla, Rebecca, Simone
Rebecca was invited by her friends to a cupcake store for a little party.
I started a Bible study from She Reads Truth.
Rebecca dressed up and put on a "show" for me.
Rebecca is back playing soccer.
Last week she scored at least six goals!
Our church is doing a series called "At the Movies". Before and after
church, there are characters from different movies in the lobby.
Last Sunday, Rebecca had her picture with Elsa.

Diva Run

picture is from Google.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Chelsea and I, ran the Diva Half Marathon.
Me, Chelsea, Jamie and Michelle
The race was in Peachtree City, so we had to up very early to drive there.
The race is for mostly women and quite a few ladies dressed up. I made tutus out of tulle for
Chelsea and I.
Early morning picture.
All the ladies ready to run. There were also lots of ladies running a 5k.
Some of the ladies had elaborate costumes. This lady was celebrating her birthday, so she was running in a cake costume ?
I noticed our shadows and thought it would make a good picture.
Peachtree City is called the "golf cart city." Lots of people drive the carts around town, so there are a ton of paths for the golf carts. It was a sunny and warm day, and thankfully most of the course was on cart paths and in the shade!
We finished! Three hours and one minute.

The prettiest medal I have so far!
A fun race, glad to have a friend to run with.

Labor Day Weekend 2014

We spent the weekend with our friends. We started at the pool and the kids did waterslide and water fights.
The girls making some music.
We had the idea to camp in the backyard and watch a movie outside.
But, it started raining, so we headed home.
We went to church and then back to try camping again.
 First, the girls played in a big tent filled with bubbles.
We watched a movie and then time for smores.
The dads and the girls all slept outside in the tents, and the moms slept inside:)
Fun weekend with our friends!

The News Room

Since the start of school, Rachel has been working in the "news room" at school each morning. Several students rotate through and learn what it takes to produce a news cast.
I went a couple of times to watch the show and see how Rachel was doing.
The first week, she was one of the camera operators.
Then she got a turn at the news desk as an anchor.
They share the lunch menu, talk about upcoming school activities and of course the weather!
This week, she is working behind the scenes with the monitors and teleprompters.
It's been a good experience for her and she seems to be enjoying it.
One of the perks of being a fifth grader!

Photos from my Phone Friday

We are into the third week of school and trying to figure out our schedule. It is still strange to me to have both of the girls away at school all day. The house is so quiet......

The girls are back at AWANA this year. They had a carnival and Rachel won a gold fish . We kept the fish overnight, and then went to live with other fish friends at our neighbor's house.
                                                    Relaxing after a hard day at school.
This pretty sunflower sprouted up in a pot. Love sunflowers.
Last week I was "on call" for jury duty, but never had to go!!
Spent an afternoon with our friends at their pool.
These girls are something else.
At the library and she wanted her picture.
AWANA game time fun. Looked fun and super dangerous.
Rachel and Daniella bonding at the bus stop.
Love this.

Last month, Raphael's family came to visit us for a few weeks. I took way to many pictures and in an attempt to keep from posting them all, I am going to try and post ten (or so)....................

1.  Welcome to Georgia.

3. Pier Park- an outdoor mall near the beach
4. Baby Emma- the newest member to the family
5. Shipwreck Island Waterpark
6. The water and sunsets-we saw beautiful sunsets and I could watch
the waves for hours on end. So peaceful.
I walked the beach one morning and passed by these teenagers. Each
one listening to the waves and reading their Bibles.
7. Random Beach Pictures
8. Afternoon at the Braves game
9. Time with Abuela
