Take a Hike

On Saturday we decide to do just that...take a Hike! We are blessed to have wonderful parks and trails around Cape. We all enjoyed ourselves with the exception of Chloe. Those of you that know Chloe, know that she is the sweetest thing you will ever meet! But, she also doesn't like much activity involving movement, sweating or being hot. Knowing those things I tried to prepare her by rubbing her down with baby powder everywhere before we went. But, it didn't help too much because she cried the entire time! Not kidding! But, Lizzie and Phoebe both loved the trails, all the bridges and finding little treasures. Phoebe walked almost the entire time and didn't want much help even on all the hills...she did AWESOME!

p.s. Chloe is wearing her favorite dress again! It's a good thing I do laundry every night! And I don't know why she has so many clothes since all she likes to wear is her pink dress with a's a good thing she's so cute!!!


Lizzie and Meghan are great friends! These two met last year in Miss Linda's class and they have been friends ever since. Meghan's family moved here with Young Life the same time we did last year. I'm so thankful Lizzie has a great friend in Meghan. Lizzie, Chloe and Phoebe also love that Meghan spends Wednesday after school with us!!! They all always look forward to Wednesdays and so do I because it is so fun to watch them all play and interact so sweetly!

Colossians 4:2-6

2Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Outside again

It is finally starting to cool down here in Good Ole Cape Girardeau! We are finally experiencing the low 90's! Anyway, it is so nice to be outside again. The last few weeks have been extremely hot and we have not spent time outside because it was just plain miserable. So, we are so thankful to have some days in the low 90's and looking forward to some days in the high 80's soon...yippee!


Cliff had some last minute meetings in Cincinnati and he asked if we would join him for a quick trip. Our response, "Of Course!" We packed the weekend with lots of fun family time. We didn't get to see all of our friends but it is always great to hangout and get loved on by family! We got to celebrate Emily's 5th birthday too!!!

First Day

I can hardly believe it but Lizzie's first day of Pre-K was August 18! She was excited and nervous all at the same time. She goes to school three days a week and loves it! We are so proud of Lizzie and know that it will be a great year!

Clifton's 32nd Birthday

This was the weekend of Cliff! And we loved celebrating him the entire weekend because he said, "It is the weekend of Cliff!" and because he is just stinkin' awesome!!! The girls made him sweet, precious presents that they couldn't wait to give him. Some of the events in celebration of Clifton were a date night with his beautiful wife, baking his own Texas sheet cake with the girls, a minor league baseball game, teaching 2yr. old sunday school and a homemade yummy dinner! We had a great weekend!!!

Mimi and Pawpaw's Visit

We had a wonderful time with Mimi and Pawpaw when they came to visit. We just love to be with Mimi and Pawpaw any chance we can get! We went to Cape Splash waterpark to try to escape the 100 degree weather...Whew, It was hot!!! We also had fun and stayed cool by going to the Library and Discovery playhouse. We are so thankful to have Mimi and Pawpaw in our lives!
