For Sale


Our house is finally up on the market. We left for the beach almost three weeks ago and it has been on the market for almost 2 weeks. We figured there was no way we could have it "show ready" without getting out of it, so our hope is to be gone all summer! We are praying that the right buyer will come along and buy it before we head back home!!

We have had great activity on the home with lots of showings. No offers yet, but we aren't losing hope!!

Here are some pics. For those of you who come to my house regularly, you will see that we did a ton of work to get it ready! We painted Catherine's room back to aneutral color, painted our master bath, painted the deck, finished up some of the trim around the hardwoods, finished out Harbin's room, and cleaned a lot. We packed up a ton of stuff and shoved it in the garage for now.

If you know anyone who needs a house in Snellville, please send them our way!!
Here's a link to the listing online!

AWANAS Awards Night

Hi! It's me again- the mom who is a month behind on everything. Anyways, Harbin had his AWANAS awards ceremony at the end of the school year. He was so cute in his little vest walking up on stage with all the other "Cubbies". I got the best pictures I could, but unfortunately my camera's short lens broke, so all I had to work with was my zoom lens. I looked like a terrible mom because I didn't join the other moms on the front row to snap pictures- if I had, I would have only had shots of his nose!!!! So, I stood way in the back and got the best shots I could.

For those of you who don't know, AWANAS- Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, is a Wednesday night program Harbin has attended since August. Each week, we had a story out of his workbook to read and he had a bible verse to memorize. Over the course of the year, he memorized over 40 versus (although I don't know that they stuck in his mind cululatively yet). He would receive patches for reciting his versus (they should really have given me more notice about the committment I was taking on sewing patches on ALL THE TIME!!!).

We are so proud of him!! He had a great time meeting lots of friends and his teacher, Ms. Kathy, was great. I truly think the experience helped contribute to his decision to accept Jesus into his heart this past January!! Everything we teach him at home is reenforced at AWANAS and we appreciate the hard work each teacher puts into the life of our little one!!

Oh, and I almost forgot one of his favorite things. You can see the picture of him sitting in his cadboard car. He helped me make that so he could sit in it at the "DriveIn movie Night". It was adorable to see all the kids in their cardboard cars!! He was excited because he had one of the few cars that had a steering wheel that actually turned (yes, I know, I AM the best mom ever)!!!

Check back soon for more updates!
