Dude Kamp

That 's what the boys call it. Just the older boys with dad for a couple nights tent camping. This year they went to Point Beach State Forest. It is one of our favorites for fall camping. Only thing this year was that it was 90 degrees when they left our home. Except when they got to the state forest it was 72! The cooler temps come from being close to the lake.
A nice weekend for Dave to spend time with the older boys talking about responsibility and what it means to be a young man. the boys love cooking breakfast and then taking long hikes in the woods just talking with Dave. they have a lot of fun and this year they went to a civil war event at the wade house. they toured the camps learning about life in the the civil war and even met President Abe Lincoln. it was smiles all around.


Have a wonderful day!

Love that we have this time together doing devotions for school with my daughter..

Love that she's wearing my old baseball t-shirt
there is a point in saving your clothes.

Having fun shopping with Grandma mimi..getting some new shoes and shirts.
(These are his favorite pants.  My mom keeps patching them but we are hanging on by a limb here.  He loves patches.)

The corn maze, corn bin, the 80ft slide...it was all so much fun at Meur farm.  

Bringing flowers and a meal to a good friend who just had a new baby boy named Israel...love me some new babies.

Look what we got Grandma Mimi to do..priceless

Apparently he has to write this way at his private school but not at home..beautiful

Love getting blessings in the mail...pure joy 

Olivia made cupcakes for her team..i think if I let her she would make them every week.

found these beauties downloading ..love them

there's always some kind of hanging string, rope, boards or ladders assembled from one place to another with this little star. Love seeing what kind of contraption he comes up with.

made this delicious gluten and dairy free cheesecake which was awesome...some of the kiddos didn't like this but glad we tried it.  Lots of steps and sooo full of protein!

Being a Steelers fan really rocks..they really love and appreciate their fans

Pet peeve..leaving empty or almost empty containers of things in the cabinets

Abraham loves minions right now

Bulletproof coffee = so darn good for you
try it sometime

Doing some agility training in the living room.  We are never short of weapons here

You never eat alone here

Being a fan of the titans is awesome...Jonah scored this for me.  Put the flag up in the garage!

We had a big funky buns order..which means for us too!

Love these cooler fall days, leaves changing and hanging with my stars.  Time is just flying by us lately.  Trying to be more intentional with my time always and never miss a moment with my stars. 
Love this life
