2013 TCU Band Camp

The last week of June, Jacob and Christopher and one of Jacob’s friends from baseball, Kyle, went to the TCU Band camp. They spent 4 days immersed in sectionals, rehearsals, and fun, and the families got to hear their concert on Thursday, the 27th of June. I’m always so impressed at what the instructors and […]

TMS Wind Ensemble Spring 2013 Concert

I’m sure I’m going to embarrass the living daylights out of Jacob by posting about this, but that’s sort of my job as a parent, right? Last night, we went to hear the Tidwell Middle School Wind Ensemble (for those of you paying attention, that’s the top 7th/8th grade band) perform their spring concert. The […]

Easter 2013

Easter was fun this year. After a horrendous thunderstorm that rained out the first baseball (league) games of the season Friday night/Saturday morning, we had a fabulous weekend. Sam had an Easter egg hunt and Easter parade at school. We decorated the house with one of my favorite flowers, tulips. Granny came over and we […]

Christmas 2012 Recap

It’s March, and we all know what that means…it’s almost Christmas! Since retailers will have Christmas gear out in another month, I thought I’d get us all in the spirit by finally recapping our Christmas. (Plus, a Christmas recap was specifically requested in a response to So Many Things, so even though it’s late, I […]

TMS Wind Ensemble Pre-UIL Concert

I might have mentioned this before, but I am SO proud of Jacob’s musical ability. He’s doing so well on trombone in 7th grade. He’s the first chair trombone in the top band at his school (so, yes, he beat out some 8th graders! Woo-hoo!). On Friday (2/22/13 – the night before I ran the […]

Keller Elite League Champs!

Saturday was the league playoffs for Jacob’s basketball team. They went into the playoffs as the number 1 seed. They played two hard-fought games almost back-to-back (11 am and 1pm) and came out victorious! Keller Elite 12U basketball, League Champs! Don’t you just love how Jacob is the only one not smiling? Even his Dad […]

Jacob, Duke TIP, and the SATs

It’s no secret that my boys are smart. And handsome. And good-natured. And funny. And loving. And…well, you get the idea. They’re generally dreamy kids. Today, in particular, we’ll talk about Jacob’s intelligence dreaminess. Back in the fall, we were notified that Jacob’s hard work in his academic classes qualified him to take part in […]

My Lot in Life

Is clearly to be surrounded by devastatingly handsome young men. I got new frames for two of the 8×10 size pictures of Jacob and Caleb that are mainstays on our mantle. I reframed the pictures and as I set them back up, it struck me again of just how incredibly handsome all the boys are. […]

So Many Things

Clearly I’m back to my once-a-week-at-best postings. I know my 4 readers are just heartbroken to not be hearing from me more. My excuse this week, at least, was having a sick kid from Monday morning through the wee hours of Wednesday morning. As for the days/weeks prior to that? Yeah…I got nothin’ (that’s my […]
