Life as WE know it...

There are a few things that Chris and I know to be true-
1- People love to tell US what they think of how we live
2- People have not ONE problem expressing their disapproval of the way we live
3- Our kids are amazing
4- Our kids are what make us a family
5- With or without money, jobs, careers, fancy cars, big houses, or nice furniture.... I love my life

We've had a very different summer this year- but we have made it to fall, we still love each other, and we are blessed beyond words.

Baby Birdies

This is just one set of the 6 sets of baby birds we had living on the porch this summer!

South Holston Lake-

We spent many days at the lake this summer- the kids loved it! No toys- just water, sticks, rocks, and the dogs! It was wonderful!
