the past few weeks have been insane from band field trips to izzy's kindergarten graduation we have been running non-stop and putting little ones to bed each night around 10 and dragging them up 7:15 ish and having them eat breakfast at school. every day this week all of the kids (sans kelsey) have taken an afterschool nap.

i will post more pics later.

hope you're starting your summer out right!!!

proms and dances

this weekend was crazy, both girls had important dates on their calenders.

blythe had her 8th grade banquet and awards program thursday night and kelsey had prom on friday night.

jere and i accompanied blythe to her banquet along with her uncle beau and aunt mel, which by the way in my day our Sunday best was good enough. the boys were in tuxes and the girls were in prom dresses, it was crazy, but i think she had a great time.

kelsey's prom was actually held at a "swanky" club in abilene. we chauffeured as it is illegal for drivers under 18 to drive after midnight and they wanted to go to ihop afterwards. we had a great time.

we also opened our home up to any kid that had nothing to do after the prom and didn't want to go home (or have sex, drink, or anything else inappropriate for sixteen year olds). we ended up with about thirteen kids drinking virgin daiquiris, pina coladas, and margaritas while playing wii and being loud. jere drove all the boys home (they left their cars at our house) and 4 girls spent the night with us.

we felt pretty privileged that the kids not only liked our idea of hanging out at the mccurds, but that they also included jere and i in the mix. we had fun with the kids too. all in all i think it was a good night, though my days of staying up til three a.m. are long over. we fixed a great big family breakfast, took the rest of the girls home, and watched jack's soccer game. all in all a pretty busy, but great weekend.

i hope yours was just as much fun!

happy monday,


btw, that's matt with blythe and andy with kelsey

happy anniversary jere

it's been seven years . . .

five houses . . .

four cars . . .

three jobs . . .

two babies . . .


one heart leading two minds.

thank you for making me yours. i love you very much and can honestly say sooo soo much more now than that funny may day when you showed up at my tiny apartment unexpectedly, smiling and sweet. you said, "do you want to get married today," i said (in jeans and a tank top with no shoes), "sure why not, but i have to be at work at noon." you said, "we better hurry we have a 10:45 appointment with Judge Kenny Kirkland." i realized then that you were serious.

sometimes the best moments in life have no real pomp or circumstance. i thought i needed those things but that's just not you. you said loving me and being loved by me was enough for you always. i didn't believe you then, it just seemed too simple.

simple- not complex or complicated, having few parts; elementary; childlike; bare.

that's our marriage, easy, not complicated or complex, with only one true part when it's stripped down bare.


i love you jeremiah wayne, happy anniversary
