Congratulations Coach Meyer

Did anyone watch the ESPN ESPY Awards a few days ago? Coach Don Meyer, who Andy played for at Lipscomb, was awarded the 2009 Jimmy V Award. He also has set the record for the most wins by any college coach. He has an amazing story with what's he's gone through and is going through-I've linked the video on You Tube. It's definately worth taking a few minutes to watch.


We are just having so much fun this summer that I have not been updating my blog. Summer started with Andy going on a mission trip to Ghana, Africa. They worked at an orphange with 48 precious kids that live in a 3 bedroom house-bunk beds are 3 high for the kids. Very happy kids and always gratful for the visits from others.

We went to the beach with Andy's family-that's a total of 17 people, 7 of which are kids 5 and under, in one big happy beach house. It was great-so neat to see the cousins together! Reese was not happy on picture night as you can tell....

July 4 was spent with friends cooking out and enjoying their neighborhood bike parade, desserts, and fireworks.

Also that week I officailly turned 30 something-31 and Drew had his fun 6th birthday party. He had a fabulous skating party-that's the cool thing in his class right now. Even Reese can skate on her Barbie skates. Shortly after the candles were blown out, my camera took a nose dive off the table. I got a new one that I'm still trying to get used to.

Other than that, we've that we have spent our free time at the pool, traveling
to visit family, VBS, work..... School starts in just 2 weeks-wow. Also, we are house hunting in town-looking for the perfect deal with some more space!
