Zane has started his potty training which is something he takes very seriously. He wants to be out of those diapers soon which his daddy and I are all for :) He loves his potty and when he goes in it he says "mama poopoo" with such pride :) Only some very mild accidents thus far. I have been fearing him taking his diaper off while in his crib, which he still hasn't done yet but does know how to do. Hopefully he will not repeat the awful stories of his mama and aunty who loved to finger paint when they were his age Ha!!!!

We are still in Florida which has been really  nice . While Elizabeth and Benjamin get ready for Benjamin's deployment in July, Honey Man will be managing Benjamin's side businesses, which is web page development. 

Elizabeth and I have been trying to get ourselves encouraged in teaching the babies to read and have been keeping up a little schedule of playing and teaching the three boys their reading, which is basically us going through a small amount of flash cards with words on them every so often throughout the day. As well has some math cards with dots and also some encyclopedic knowledge cards with great big pictures of  animals, plants and other great new things to learn about. When they see something that they have learned or recognized for instance, the word Kangaroo And when we show them a kangaroo on youtube, their little faces break into a delightful smile of recognition and delight which really encourages their mama's :)

For Father's Day we are all headed on a road trip to Key West. Because Key West is such a pricy place, we will be staying in a little condo at the Navy Base which is right on the beach. 
So on the road we will go and I will try to document it and take some photos to post when I get back.
Much Love to you dear readers.

Proud Sister

My eldest brother Nathan just graduated from film school, I am so excited to see where the Lord will take him now that he is all finished. I should say that I am also so proud of my sister in law as well. She was the one at home with the two small boys while he worked full time and went to full time school, they both have been going and going non stop up to this point for along time :) 

With that being said Nathan after working 2 years on his first feature-length film, starts filming on July 30!

TSOL (pronounced "soul"): is the name of his film 
Shot in the scenic Sangre De Cristo Mountains, this movie is a psychological thriller that tells the story of a young man fighting for his life-- and his mind. After awakening from a horrific airplane crash, Chuck finds himself stranded and alone in the mountains. His friends are dead and he has no food or water in which to sustain himself. Chuck begins a journey to find not only civilization but also himself. He battles multiple demons of thepast-- the death of his mother, the unforgiveness of his father, and his own dying faith.
Through encounters with wild beasts to hallucinations of his dead friends, Chuck struggles, eventually discovering the meaning of life.

 Please visit his Kickstarter site by clicking on the image below, so as to get an idea of what this film is about,  as well as seriously thinking  about backing this film, we would so appreciate your help, to become a backer it would only cost $10.00 to get a signed DVD. Those of you who would post the video on your blog and facebook we would appreciate it SOOO much!

Praying For Our Sons

Well, today is the fist day of my commitment to pray 21 days for my boys.
I have joined a lovely group of women who have committed 21 days on behalf of raising up their sons to be Godly men through prayer. The book is called Warrior Prayers which is by Brooke Mcglothlin,
I joined through my dear friend Daisy who is the leader of our group via blog world. If you have boys and would love to join us feel free to click on Daisy's link above and leave a comment for her :)

So far for today's devotion/ prayer time which covered Obedience 
 I enjoyed reading through the scriptures and praying them for and over my sons.
Here are just a few,,,

May Zane and Ezra obey Jesus' commandments, and remain in His love
 (John 15:10). 

Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, may Zane and Ezra obey the LORD our God so that it will go well with them 
(Jeremiah 42:6). 

May Zane and Ezra return to the LORD their God, and obey with all their heart and all their soul all the commands God has given 
(Deuteronomy 30:2).

Cowboys And The Bubbles

 This little Cowboy of mine is just loving his new found delight....
BUBBLES, yes he is inthralled with them, can't get enough of them.
 His other delight???
His Cowboy Bootscan't go anywhere without them. When hew wakes from his sleep in the morning, has to have them on, when he wakes from his nap in the afternoon, has to put them on.
 This little guy would be happy wearing his boots with or without his britches :)
 Did I mention that we happen to be out of town at the moment?
Yes we saddled up and left the ranch to go a visitin the other Cowboy who happens to be double cousins with this little 
 So we are having a hoedown down here in Sunny Florida visiting the family.
Yes sometimes the two little Cowboy cousins have some difference of opinions when it comes to sharing bubbles and such, so I tell my little Cowboy, "If your cousin outdraws you boy, walk away. There’s plenty o’ time to look tough when your outta’ sight." :)
