Welcome to Wade's World where Jeremy and Amy are just the parents, Macy is the B-A-D dog, and our two boys, Jackson and Anderson are the real stars of the show!
We are Christian conservatives who love Jesus, our families, and each other. We live somewhere in the South where we love grits, say "y'all," and know that you never, ever wear white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day no matter what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly say.
Stay tuned for what inevitably lies ahead as Amy blogs about life in Wade's World.
Today is your 9th birthday. 9 whole years! I have no clue where the time has gone, but one thing is for sure...you make my life sweeter! When we were about to welcome you into the world, I had no idea about how much you would change our lives for the better. You are delightful, and I'm so proud that I can say that you are my son.
At 9 years old, you are an absolute mess! Funny, kind, sweet, serious and sensitive, all rolled up into one. Your Dad and I often point to each other whenever you do or say something, and it totally reminds us of ourselves. Most of the time, we know exactly who you are acting like! You are in a pranking stage right now, and you've pulled a couple of good ones on your Dad and I. Better watch out! You love your family so much, and have a huge heart for Jesus. It's easy to see him living in you!
You are in 4th grade now, and are we know that you are going to do fantastic again this year. For the first time ever you will be playing baseball this fall, and we are excited to see how much you will progress as you move up into the next league. You want to be in the military when you grow up, and maybe even fly airplanes. I can't wait to see that!
Somehow it feels like I blinked, and here we are with you on your 9th birthday! You have one foot in childhood, and one foot in tweenhood, and I'm so proud of the young man you are, and can't wait to see how God will use you in the future. We are so amazingly proud of you, and love you to the moon and back. Happy Birthday, sweetie!
Today is Jackson's first day of 4th grade. How is that even possible? This handsome kid of ours agreed to let me pick his clothes for the first 3 days of school this year, and then after that he can pick his clothes (within reason). He had me drive him to school today, but wants to ride the bus tomorrow. No doubt about it....he's growing up!
What is your
favorite subject in school? PE.
What is your favorite thing
to eat for school lunch? Pizza
you like about Mrs. Judge's classroom? I like that I'll be sitting next to a friend from last year.
What is going to be the best thing about fourth grade? Ummmm.....not being in 3rd grade anymore?
What do you think about having
homework? I don't like it, but at least Mrs. Judge says she doesn't give a lot of homework.
What is your favorite
Are you nervous about school? A little bit.
What are you nervous about? I don't want there to be any bully's.
How many friends do you think you
will have? Everybody in my class.
How many girlfriends? (Insert
blank stare.) NONE. Well, maybe 1. Or not.
So that's the answers from the first day of 4th grade. I can't wait to hear about school when I see him this afternoon!
So I've been totally remiss with posting this summer. I'm in a total bloggy funk right now, and I really don't have any excuses. Summer is almost over, and it's just been a nice break. We've taken a beach trip, and a weekend trip to Atlanta to see the Braves with Jeremy's parents, and had a blast. I'll post pics. Eventually!
School starts back in 2 weeks, and I'm ready, but Jackson isn't. Typical kid, huh? Jackson will be turning 9 (how is that even possible?) in a few weeks. He's amazingly wonderful!
Anderson has been fantastic. Growing like a weed. Adding new words to his majorly expanding vocabulary. He's so much fun!
Jeremy and I are good. Busy with work and such, but life is going along just swimmingly. Nothing exciting, just normal!
So that's life right now. I'll do better with blogging, but for now I'm enjoying this slower pace. Life is good, we are good, and I'll y'all again very soon!
We went to the beach the last weekend in June, and had such a good time. This was the first beach trip for Anderson where he somewhat tolerated the sand, and didn't refuse to be put down. He wasn't a huge fan of the waves, but I'll call it progress. Jackson on the other hand couldn't get enough of the waves, and had such a blast playing with his boogie board. It was wonderful relaxing with my favorite boys, and I can't wait for us to be able to put our toes back in the sand again. Enjoy the pics!
