Hello Blogging World!  So sorry I have been so random with posts lately!  Promise as soon as we get moved and settled I will be back to blogging! lol :)  I hope! 

Anyway... it's been a few weeks since I have posted an Insta-Friday... so here ya go!  
Here's peek into our week(s). :) 

My flower pot sitting girl :) 

This boy could ride this All. Day. Long.  
He seriously wakes up asking where Coach is and if Coach will take him for a ride.  No joke!!!  He LOVES it! :)  

Pizza with my boy the week of his birthday! 
It was just me and this sweet guy in Abilene for the week!  
I loved every minute.  We had so much fun! 

And yes, this boy slept until after 10:00am!  He's like his mama! :) 

Making Daddy jealous with his favorite snow cones!

Love these boys like crazy! 

Getting ready for a birthday party! 

Got to facetime with this handsome man after not seeing his face for 2 weeks!  Loved it! 

BFFs!  Hunter got some special Carson time!  He still talks about it All the Time!!  So much fun! 

Ben surprised us and came home a day early!  WooHoo!  He was home for Hunter's birthday!!! 
Happy Birthday, Hunter!!!!  
I can't believe you are 6!! 
Of course he wanted to go to the "rice place" to eat. :)  

Hunter's Texans football party!!!! 
Party post coming soon!!  

A very special Father's Day! 
Hunter was baptized!!!! 
Video and blog post coming soon! 

Happy Father's Day with my amazing Daddy! 

It was a bomb pop in the bathtub kind of night after everyone left on Sunday evening. 
Just me and my sweet kiddos for the week in Abilene. 

Zoo Trip with the Hays!!!! 
I can't tell you how much I love and am going to miss this sweet family!!! 
Great... now I'm crying!  :(

So much fun with these sweet kids!!!  Loved spending the morning with them and their amazing Mama! :) 

Yummy treat for my sweet kids!!! :) 

The next day we headed to Gainesville so my kids could stay with Coach and Honey while I headed to KS to look for a house with Ben.  I can't thank my parents enough for taking care of the kids!!!  I know they have had a blast with Coach and Honey!! 

Date nite in Wichita with this man!  
Movies to see... Monsters University! haha 
Kids at heart! 

Ran my first 5k with this awesome Katie!!! Love her so much!  So glad I will get to see her all the time again! :) 

Painting the billboard with our feet after the race! 
I'll post a picture of the billboard when it is up! :) 

After Kansas I headed back to Abilene to pack!  Kiddo, our cat, was there to keep me company!  Then on Wednesday I road with my Daddy back to Gainesville.  I have missed the kids like crazy!!! 
Watching some Veggie Tales with my girl! 

Running with the cows again! 
P.S. Running at 7:30 is so much nicer than running at 9:30.  It's HOTT in Texas! :) 

While the boys were at VBS today, I got to watch Maggie swim during swimming lessons!  I hope I get to see Hunter swim during his lessons soon! :) 

Now we are waiting to see Daddy tomorrow!!  Yippee!! :) 
Have a great weekend, everyone!

The man of the house

My hero, Hunter! 
 Let me tell you about last night... You see i HATE bugs!!  Seriously, I do NOT like them... at all!!!  The bug I hate the most is the roach.  YUCK!!!  We do not see many roaches in our house, but we have seen one after a couple of nice rains.  When we do see a roach, I have been known to wake up sleeping husband to kill said roach.  He has gotten very angry at me for making him do it, but I say... It's his job!  I do the house work and take care of the kids, he kills the roach and takes out the garbage.  Fair trade??  I think so! :) 
Well most of you know Ben is in Wichita right now and you might also know that it has rained here in Abilene lately... you know what's coming right???  Yes, there was a roach in our house last night!!! Ahhhh!  I HATE them!! Yuck! 
If you were near our house around 9:30, you might have heard a few screams.  
Well because I am so brave (hahaha not really) I put on my Nike's and was ready to kill Mr. Roach.  Hunter was there wearing his trusty Crocs to help.  I found the Raid that wasn't really for roaches, but hey it was Raid and I used it.  I sprayed that roach... I might have been slightly farther away than the 6 to 8 inches as the can instructed, but I think it might have worked a little.  After a lot of spraying, I threw my flip flops at it.  Still not completely dead, but wounded!  After we cornered the roach my sweet hero swooped in and saved the day... He stepped on it for me.  (I may or may not have bribed him with $5!) 
Now for the sweetest part... Earlier that day we had gone to Michael's to get a few things for his party.  While checking out he saw these rings (the fake $3 sparkly rings) at the check out line.  After I gave him his $5 he got so excited!  He would not put that money down.  Then he said he knew exactly what he was going to get with his $5... He insisted that I take him to Michael's so he could buy me a ring.  
Hunter you are such a blessing!!!  Thank you for saving me from Mr. Roach!  You have stolen my heart, little man!!!  I love you so much!!!

Preschool Graduation

Can Hunter really be going to into kindergarten??  Is he really going to be 6 on Friday??  Where has the time gone?  How can I make it stop?

We have been blessed to have such a great school and such amazing teachers for Hunter and for Maggie and Archer, too.  Hunter has grown up going to Beltway's CDC.  He started at 1 year old in the Bunny class.  We became really good friends with his teacher in that class and have been blessed by her and her sweet family in more ways than she will ever know! (Thank you, Christina!!) After the Bunny class he became a Tiger.  Then we moved into our awesome new building and he was a Jelly Fish and then a Shark for the last 2 years.  Ms. Brandy does an amazing job getting her students ready for kindergarten.  I am so thankful Hunter was able to have her as a teacher this year!  He learned so much!  We are so blessed!!! 
I could go on and on, but instead... here are some graduation pictures! 

walking on stage! 

I love this sweet boy so much!!!

This is when they were singing 'Deep Cries Out'.  He loves this song! :) 

Yay Hunter!

Everyone loves Ms. Brandy!! 

Sweet friends! Hunter and Brecklyn! 

Ms. Samm our music teacher!  We LOVE her so much!!!!  She did a great job teaching music this year!  The program was great!  All my kids just love Samm!  :) 

Bring on kindergarten!!! :)

After a looong trip in the car with these sweet kids we finally made it and are ready for bed.
