Sweet Siblings

Porter's not really into getting his picture taken anymore, but I'm glad I was able to get a few pics of him and his sister while we were up in Columbus, Ohio.

Porter & Stella

Oh, these two! They really are sweet together... most of the time!

Last Day of School

It's Porter and Stella's last day of school for the 2018-2019 academic year!

Stella's Last Day of Kindergarten

I am so proud of these two kids. They started the school year in Lexington, KY and within 3 months, had to relocate 2.5 hours south to Bowling Green, KY. The resiliency they showed during this transition was nothing short of incredible. I know I couldn't have done it as well as either one of them. These kids are strong in spirit!

Smothers Park

Here are my caged monkeys enjoying their time at Smothers Park in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Although the weather made things a little dreary while we were there, the Smothers Park playground is AMAZING!

If you look closely to the photo below, you can see Porter jetting by in chase of his sister.
