Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

Mackenzie got 2nd Place at the Warner Robins Invitational!

Rilianne’s Last Day of Pre-K

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

Today was Rilianne’s official last day of Pre-K. For the last 2 months, Pre-K has taken place over Zoom. This evening, they did a slideshow and presented awards online. She received the “Deer Award” for being a gracious friend. We enjoyed reminiscing over the year with a slide show while also silently grieving for the moments that were lost. I guess we officially have a kindergartener now!

Her teachers: Mrs. Merrell and Mrs. Willis.

And her spring school photo turned out really well!

The Coleman Hill Slide

Saturday, May 9th, 2020

When I asked Kimberlie what she wanted for mother’s day, she requested a good hamburger. The best burger in central Georgia is at Ocmulgee Brewpub in Macon. Unfortunately they are closed on Sunday and they aren’t offering dine in right now. So today, I called in an order and we took it up to Coleman Hill and had a picnic in front of Mercer Law – my old stomping grounds.

A few years ago, some local group added a concrete slide on the hill. Rilianne and Mackenzie loved it and Kimberlie and I gave it a try as well.

Quarantine Food Trucks

Thursday, April 30th, 2020

Since we are supposedly quarantined, we are having various food trucks come into the neighborhood.  Two weeks ago, someone grabbed the ice cream man and suggested he come through.  The ice cream was great!

Last weekend, we had Kona ice come through. Another great choice.

Tonight, I scheduled a local Mexican restaurant to park their food trailer in the neighborhood.  It was only the restaurants 4th event but they made a ton of money and it was great to grab a plate without going far!

And on evenings when there are no food trucks, there is always the fire pit!

Happy 5th Birthday Rilianne

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

Today is Rilianne’s 5th birthday. Things didn’t exactly go as planned.

All year long, she has asked for us to bring cupcakes to her class. That couldn’t happen. I thought about having a drive by birthday, but the storms eliminated that option. But Rilianne enjoys everything she does so her day was still special.  Her class even sang to her on zoom!

Some of her gifts include a dollhouse, which she calls her “Barbie Dreamhouse”, and a bicycle. We also got her some seeds to plant because she loves helping outside.

Happy Easter 2020

Sunday, April 12th, 2020

Due to the quarantine, we weren’t able to go anywhere for Easter.  But I still made the kids get dressed for our annual picture!

Strawberry Picking 2020

Saturday, April 11th, 2020

Even though we are under a “Shelter-in Place” Order due to COVID-19, we are allowed to get groceries. So we made the trek out to Elliot Farms to get some fresh strawberries. This has become an annual spring tradition for us.

Quarantine Firepit

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Our life has really slowed down due to COVID-19. Since we don’t have anything to do or anywhere to be, we had scores in the driveway this evening!

Social Distancing

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

Our lives have certainly slowed down due to COVID-19 closures. There are no soccer games, no refereeing, no swimming, no school, no travel, no anything.  Tristan is still working at Chick-Fil-A and Kimberlie and I still work (although about half of mine is telework).  Mackenzie and Rilianne are bored out of their minds. Fortunately, the weather has been beautiful!
