Here are my two squads at cheer camp. Aren't they cute?!

Happy Memorial Day to you! I spent last week at the beach....with 27 high school cheerleaders at cheer camp. Both teams won the home pom routine division. Way to go girls! I really enjoyed spending time with the girls getting to know them better. Reese had a great time too! She's not a fan of the beach but loved the pool. While we were off doing the beach/cheer thing Drew and Andy had a good "guys week" Drew went to the river with 5 of the high school guys and a very trustworthy set of parents who Drew adores. Should I be worried that my 3 1/2 year old is hanging out with high schoolers?! The guys were great and love him to pieces!

So here's the reason for the "Spontaneous" title As you all know, I'm not the most spontaneous person around-I like to plan and prepare for everything. So, yesterday I let some friends talk me into running the Cotton Row 5K race with them. Let me remind you that even though 3.1 miles is not that far, I have not trained one single bit for this! I was at the beach all last week and prior to that I can't remember the last time I've run more than 2 miles. Needless to say, I was not prepared and my goal was to finish. It was so hot to top things off. But, I finished just 2 1/2 minutes behind a friend who trained. Drew decided he wanted in on the racing fun so he and Andy ran the 1 mile fun run.. Andy said that half way through he was ready to quit but they kept on going. It turned out to be a fun morning hanging out with friends. Tonight we're off to a friend's for a highly competitive kickball game and cookout.

Catching up...again!

My blog stays in a constant state of catching up....kudos to you that are diligent in keeping yours updated. Well, we've had lots going on....I'll give you the quick version. Over the past few months we've been "flipping" an old house and have now moved in. The outside will be our summer project but the inside is close to being complete. We've gutted the kitchen, tore down walls, refinished all the floors, painted everything, new light fixtures.....all with the help of handy friends-you know we're not real handy! For two weeks we didn't have countertops or running water in the kitchen which made life interesting.

I'm also back in cheerleading world coaching the JV and Varsity squad. I'll be taking them to camp next week (at the beach!) Sounds pretty rough, huh?! I never got to go to the beach for camp!

My brother's getting married this summer. We were able to attend two showers in Arkansas last week and visit with family.

Reese is crawling and pulling up...I have to keep my eye on her! Drew has the big end of the year school program at preschool next week...he's directing a song-that should be a hoot!

FYI....check out They have cute free cards to send out for every occaision. Happy Mother's Day!
