Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Prov. 31:30
Last day of school, always bittersweet, to leave behind a class, that the kids spend almost every day with. We were lucky this year to have such great teachers for the little girls. They both grew in confidence and academically. Sadie and Chloe have wanted to participate in the school talent show, so they performed their hip hop routine with their buddies. It was a smashing hit!
 Sage and coco
 My baby next year she will go till 2:30!!
 Ms. Rowe so sweet, patient
Sadie's teacher was awesome, a mom of twins Sadie's age, she was very understanding, loving. 
 Phew now that school is over let summer begin!
 First adventure….Disney Grand hotel
 We opted not to go to the park instead we got a room, and met my parents there. The pool all day was plenty of entertainment, and down town Disney at night! So fun
 That's me way up there, Sadie went down this slide about 20 times, no joke she dared me to as well
 Papa and grandma
 Sage's first beach tourney this summer. It was co-ed, she played great
 And wedding season has officially started…first client was stunning

 And finally we are finishing up things around the house, like re-doing the stairs in the backyard, planting plants back there it's a huge yard and super overwhelming at times!
 Stairs stained John did a awesome job using a lot of wood we had, so total cost for the project was around $375!!! I received a quote of 4,800. So sweat equity is the way to go.
 Before and after
Our guy is starting on the 6th!! We finally found "thee" guy to frame, I found him on another build, so I could see his work, he's great. John did the demo, he was warned how horrible and messy removing stucco can be, so we got a quote of $2,000, John did it himself with 3 dump runs of $27, we saved a ton!! Within a day it was done, Little John helped the whole time, John was so proud of his boy.

Saying goodbye, hate that part.
The girls got on a "bang" kick, so here they are, notice Chloe's straight hair? Well curly bangs don't really work!!! A few tears later, momma straightened so she would feel good. 
Zendaya came to the Del Mar fair, of course we had take Sadie and Chloe, Sage and Bubba wanted had to go!
 Auntie was up to the challenge of helping me out. We had to stand for over 2 hours, torture on our legs, we held the girls most of the time
 There will be many beach days this summer
 Coco's goal was to ride without training wheels so John and I took her to the park, and within a few minutes off she went! I've never saw such a thing…She's a natural
 The girls are obsessed with American Girl Dolls as you may know the clothes and accessory's are ridiculously expensive!! So Sadie researches how to make things for them and daddy builds!
 Oh Esther, thee cutest baby
 We may sell this house when were done, and this will be the inspiration for the next kitchen!! In love
Hope your all enjoying summer, Sage and I are off to get this momma a new bikini, she's gonna just "help" yeah right! Shirley

Happy Fathers Day

Like our heavenly father, our earthly father mirrors the love that Christ has shown to us.
"Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things." [I Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV]

To the handsomest, kindest, loving father….Happy Fathers Day
My kids adore you
Your always there to guide, teach

 Patients like none other
 Your my best friend
 The coolest guy I know
With all my love, admiration Daddy I love you, Shirley

Being choosy

All things work together for good to those who love God. —Romans 8:28

Look at these cuties Haley's 2 boys and my little girls. 
Haley and I met in the 4th grade, and have stayed friends since. I love this girl she's such a amazing person, with a heart of gold. And to see her as a momma, completely devoted, loving, is awesome. Looking forward to growing old together, even though we live far apart, we hold each other in our hearts. 
 We took the kids to Legoland
 These two look like they could be twins

 Sadie and Chloe take a hip hop class weekly, it's so cute to watch. As a family we went to their performance, Sage and John were completely shocked that their little sisters could hip and hop!!! The girls won't show us their moves at home, so to see them on a huge stage giving it all they got, John and Sage couldn't stop laughing, huge smiles on their faces, so proud of their sissy's.

 Me and mine
 My sis n law had a birthday, she's a wonderful mother, and a blessing to our family. Love you Rach
 Sage had a two day tournament in LA, she played so great, very proud of her

 Take a look at our deck for the last time our PERMITS WERE APPROVED!!!! Staring work next week! Can't tell you what a lesson in patients I learned! 4 long months of waiting!
We moved bubbas room, and bought new furniture for him, it's furniture he'll take to college, sob…..

 Hippie day
OK time to get with it, slow morning today, enjoying way to much coffee, had a great talk with John and Sage about relationships, taking the time to really be picky with who you choose to spend time with, and maybe start a relationship with. It's a touchy subject trying not to teach being judgmental against others, but to see the character traits in others. How mistakes, and wrong choices can lead to life long struggles, heartache's, and it's all avoidable if you step back, pray, and seek God in all matters. Not to be lead by emotions, but with your mind, and heart. Love you Shirley
