My girl

There are times when I think it would fun to have a whole bunch of little girls...they really are a lot of fun...


And even though there are times that she pushes my buttons and dangerously close to the edge of my sanity...I really believe that even if I had 20 more little girls I would still love her most...I can't help it, she acts just like her momma!

Myrtle Beach Days

Thanks to having a generous & very sweet friend we've had lots of fun Myrtle Beach days...and lots of fun in the waves...and I don't care what the West Coast says because I love our Myrtle Days! A little beach music reference for those who enjoy & appreciate good beach music! I'm getting ready to overload you with our beach pictures...so get ready...there are a ton of them because I think my kids are by far the cutest kids on the beach!

One day Tripp is going to H-A-T-E me for this picture...but I love his little Coppertone tan and his little crooked crack...which he's had his whole life!

Sometimes I wonder why we didn't name this little girl "Archie Bruce McCarty, III"...they are two peas in a pod...

On our last trip we got to spend the day with my brother-in-law and his family...

Page thought this pirate looked like Will Ferrell's brother in "Step Brothers"...I totally agree!

End of 2yr Old Preschool

So this is super long over due...but I finally sat down and loaded 2 months worth of pictures and can finally update some fun times in the last few months that I dont' want to forget... We loved Ruth Ann's first year at Mt. Hebron Day School. The month of May was jammed packed with fun school activities and it seemed to make the month fly by. We started May by going to a graduation/end of school performance...

I have to add that in the days prior to this performance they sent home a letter asking little girls not wear giant bows in their hair so they didn't obstruct other kids.  I kinda felt like it read "Ruth Ann's momma, we're looking at you!"  I had a slight panic because as we've outgrown bows I've passed them onto others...I managed to find one I thought was acceptable!

Tripp came with us so that meant we had to make an early exit because he got a little bit tired of sitting quietly...


After the show was over we got to visit their classroom and see the art work they have been working on in art class every other week...


(Ruth Ann's art work is on her side closet to her hair bow) During the last week of school they had a field day...

And then the last day of school was upon us...a day I had been dreading. I love having Ruth Ann home with me during the summer and not having to get up to have her at school bright and early...but I'm always sad to have a reminder that yet another year is behind us and Ruth Ann is one more year older...and one more year farther away from being my little baby girl...tear.

And here are Ruth Ann's teachers, Ms. Rhonda and Ms. Catherine...such sweet teachers...we've been missing them this summer and will miss them next year too!
