I know it has been forever since my last post and I am sorry! I have been busy this past month and it is getting harder and harder to find the time to post.

We did have a great vacation at Myrtle Beach with 15 of our closest friends earlier this month! The beach was lots of fun and the kids and adults really enjoyed the week. Caroline and I were both sad that Daddy didn't get to go with us though...maybe next year.

We are now getting ready for Caroline's iCarly birthday party this weekend. It is so hard to believe on August 4th she will be 6.

Can you believe it is already July? Our parents were right when they told us," the older you get the faster time flies." I am sure everyone is busy getting ready for the 4th and we hope everyone has a very happy and safe one!!! I think we are just going to hang out around the house and grill and probably make some homemade ice cream. Oh yeah, and go to the fireworks!

Well I haven't posted in a few weeks...sorry. We haven't been doing to much on the weekends...trying to take a break. Caroline is definitely enjoying her summer!!! I think she goes swimming everyday. She is now a level 2 gymnast, so that means more time at the gym. Thank goodness it is not every week though. She has also started on her new solo dance, it is a ballet to, " I Can Only Imagine." I think it is going to be really good. She enjoys dancing so much!!!

Still trying to get over the fact that my friend Capers is in heaven now. His wife had a major heart attack last Monday night and as of yesterday she had not been released from the hospital...please pray for her and the rest of the family.

On a brighter side, Caroline spent the night away at her best friend Jessica's house for the first time last Friday night. Everyone told be to be prepared to receive a phone call from her begging to come home and I did! It was so hard not to jump in the car and go get Lyons...but I knew she was just tired and would fall asleep within seconds of the phone call. Sure enough, not even 5 minutes later Jessica's mom text me to let me know she had fallen asleep and was ok. Since all was well with her, Cliff and I got up Saturday morning and enjoyed a few hours fishing together...I don't think we had been fishing by ourselves since Caroline has been born. And of course, I caught the biggest one! Later that night we attended Molly's dance recital...she did so good...we are so proud of her!

A Friend Remembered

What should have been a day of fun and relaxation turned to tragedy and sorrow. It all started with a phone call I received this morning around 8 o'clock. My friend Capers Phillips had been killed late Sunday night. I could not believe what my ears were couldn't be true...I had just seen him Friday! I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with Mr. Capers Friday...he had picked me up a remote for my garage while in Augusta on a doctors visit...of course I fussed about the price and then Mr. Capers joked about the fact that even though he had built my house 2 1/2 years ago I still thought that he should fix everything that went wrong...we always enjoyed teasing each other and I am really going to miss him! My heart is broken and I pray for Ms. Deloris and the rest of the family to find peace and healing with God by their side.

Mr. Capers I hope there is a race track in heaven!

Dancer of the Year!

Caroline's was named Dancer of the Year Saturday night at her dance recital. She did such a good job on both of her solos and her 3 duos. She was very excited when she got her pink trophy!

Today is Caroline's last day of kindergarten and she is sad :-( ...she says she doesn't want to go to the 1st grade...she wants to go to Miss Beverly's class tomorrow...I tried to tell her that tomorrow was Saturday. I can't believe the school year is already over!!! It seems like only yesterday I was getting her ready for the first I'm sad. She is growing up so fast!
