This is the Life!

Happy Tuesday Girls!! I hope this post finds you happy and enjoying the first days of Summer!! The sweet photo above is my family at "Pirate Cove" mini-golf course in Osage Beach, Mo. We spent last weekend there and had a fabulous time!

Spooky pirate!!

Aren't these gorgeous?

We made the trip to support our son Jackson. He made it to the State Finals for the Optimist Club Speech Contest. We were so excited to get away!!  This is us having dinner at JB Hooks on the Lake. The contest was the next day.

I am proud to tell you that my son took FIRST PLACE!! 

He won a $2500 college scholarship!! We are so proud of Jackson!!!

Today is this sweet girl's 15th Birthday!!

Em at Dogpatch in Osage Beach

My Em is 15!! How in the world did this happen?? I remember her 1st Birthday like it was yesterday. Love you, Ems!!!

The rest of our week is filled with Soccer and traveling to Springfield for my cousin's wedding Friday night. Lots of fun going on this week.

I am looking forward to art journaling again very soon. And I am looking forward to my Summer Art Challenge!! I hope you'll join me starting June 4th.

What trips are you taking this summer?? Please share!!!


  1. WHAT a wonderful accomplishment! You have so much to be proud of - and congratulations on the birthday too - 15!! Wow, she is gorgeous!! xoxo

  2. Wow! Busy busy busy! I have a cousin who graduated from high school last year, and it was weird to see because I remember when he was one of the flower kids at my graduation over a decade earlier! Kids grow up way too fast these days.

  3. Lots to celebrate! That's great that your son came in first place and won some scholarship money -- very cool! And your daughter is so sweet; I can barely remember when I was her age!!!


  4. What a great weekend! Many congratulations to Jackson. I look at Em and know that 15 is just around the corner for my girls; I know that once they start school, time will really fly!

  5. Looks like you had a fabulous time! Congrats to Jackson, $2500 scholarship is so very cool! Happy Birthday to Em, my Jordan just turned 21 about 10 days ago, so I can relate to the "How did this happen"!! I'm glad that you had a happy weekend!! :)

  6. Way to go Jackson...awesome....looks as though you had a lovely time away...happy birthday em...yeah Leslie ...it flies by too quickly...enjoy your busy week...xxx
