CLC May Program

Jett Boy had his end of year performance at school. I took the day off and made sure I was there early to get a seat. He said John 3:16 all by himself. He did a great job and though he got a bit teased afterward my heart was full. He crawled past me, over my mother in law and into the lap of his great grandmother. They love each other in a special way. He walked hand in hand with her, then wanted to fix her water and then took her on a tour of his class. He loves Mamaw.

Jimmy Pollard is 60

With no cake or any fanfare this patriarch turned 60. He celebrated with a couple of bike rides and a meal I didn't get to attend. Happy Birthday JP!!!

Music in May

Bikes on Main

We have loved coming home each afternoon and enjoying time together on the trail. We ride and walk. We play on the stretch station and usually end our time calling Cullen to come get Jett so he doesn't have to walk up tho hill home.

Sweet Cousins

Art Gala

The Spring Art Gala was great! Ellen Russell had a fabulous downtown scene.

Finally she's 30

I've been waiting for this young one to get old for a decade. That's right she's always been the young gal of the group and finally she's 30- the great equalizer. We skipped the big dinner on the Square and opted for a lunch beforehand with just the four of us.

The Sound of Music

For an early Mother's Day gift I took my mom to Memphis to see The Sound of Music. Somehow in all her years she had never eaten and Rendezvous so we began our night there. We moved on to have dessert at The Majestic Grille before the show. The show was one of the best I've seen. The sets were unlike anything I had seen before. We laughed we cried and we soaked up every moment together.

Yard Work

I think Cullen has been waiting on the day he could get Jett to help him with mowing. Jett had to warm up to the noise but wound up having a blast.

I signed Jett up for Tball.
I didn't know our coach or one person on the team.
We had our first practice last night and it should be noted this was the first time Jett wore athletic clothing. He went with an all blue motif and was proud of his choice, I should follow it with a "bless his heart."
Jett listened, followed directions and did way better than I expected.
At the end of practice he told his coach thank you and he would miss him until next week.

Spring Break Roadtrip

We left after church this morning to head on a road trip. I love an adventure. With Cullen in Honduras for the week, we decided to take our own.

Afternoon at Avent's Park

We had time to kill before his haircut, so Jett asked me to pick up his Mamaw and take them to the park.

On the Open Roads

 We spend a lot of our time in the afternoons on the sidewalks, on the trail and around town riding, running, and walking.

Jett Turns 4

We had JettBoy's party a little later than normal this year.  He wanted another train party but we decided that superheros would be a little less redundant that the two years before.  We were in the church gym again this year and with superhero stations the kids had a blast.

Garth Brooks

 Seeing Garth Brooks has been on my bucket list for years.  I jumped at the chance to try and get tickets.  My friend Haley was on it, and the four of us headed to Memphis for Cullen's birthday concert.  He was amazing.  I loved it.  I knew almost every song and Cullen was a little lost, but we had a great time.

Black Eyed Peas

Mom always comes through making black eyed peas for New Year's Day.  This year she served it up on a McCarty black eyed pea platter.
Later I shared this platter of food at my in laws who hosted us for a New Year's Sunday night dinner.
