So, right now I am sitting at Panera with no where to be and no mess to clean and no one to tend to! Peyton went to his Nana's in Athens this week. We pick him up Sunday and boy am I excited! I know I know. I titled this freedom but I sure miss that rascal! It has been nice to get rest and go on a few dates with my handsome hubby, but I am ready for the noise and mess and joy to come back! Chris is out playing golf with some guys for a buddy's birthday and I am relaxing with no agenda.
A word on the growing belly....I am 22 weeks and UNCOMFORTABLE! I told C last night that I feel like this one is way more uncomfortable than P. I still have 17 more weeks to go and the no sleep has set in hardcore! BUT this pregnancy has been so easy, no complications and we are so very thankful! We just need to agree on a name for this new munchkin. We have a LONG list, but just cant quite pin one yet.
The summer is coming to an end very quickly, which means.....Chris is in school, our house is coming off the market, football games (college and high school) and no more traveling. The summer has flown by and I am sad. It has been an enjoyable one, but I am not ready for it to end. I have really loved seeing my sweet husband a lot more.
Well I think I am going to go across the way and look at baby stuff. You know, it never gets old!

Drum Roll.....

......It's a boy! We are having another boy! I am so excited. Peyton went with us for the appt and it was so sweet to watch him look at the screen and talk about his baby brother. He is going to be such a great big brother. He talks to the baby when we mention him and he asks what he is doing.

I am surrounded by sweet boys and I can't wait to add this one to the household! I know I will be taken care of by my men.

We have a few names we are sitting on, Harper being the middle name after my grandaddy.

I am now 21 weeks and feeling good, a little uncomfortable because he is sitting so low, but this pregnancy has been so easy.

Thank you Lord for keeping us safe so far!

This is a bad picture, but it is all I can get doing it by myself. I feel huge!


We went down to St. Simons a couple of weeks ago for FCA coaches/family camp and it was wonderful! We met many new fun friends from all over the state and got hit with the Bible from some great speaking.
Our friends, the Massey's, have been trying for a couple of years now to get us down there and this year God pulled through with providing our finances to go. I am so thankful they invested the time to convince us, knowing we NEEDED to be there. Chris was able to meet with like minded men who go through the same struggles coaching and I was able to hear from other coaches wives. We all brainstormed how we can support or sweet husbands more and help them instead of complain how they are gone too much.
We had free time everyday so we took advantage of it. One day we hit the beach and Peyton was so excited to go, but didn't love the water too much. Another day we went to the pool and he just wanted us to hold him the whole time instead of sit in his float. We also went to the pier where they have a yummy ice cream shop and a huge play area....I think this was his favorite free time day!

Here is Chris playing the cow bell. Our dear friend Bryce volunteered him!

I am not sure why some pictures are smaller but this is me and my sweet friend Riki. She and her husband, Bryce, are the ones that encouraged us to go.

I wish this was a bigger picture because it is so cute. Gehrig, Greer and Peyton are checking out the river behind our hotel.

I enjoyed our date night very much! Us and three other couples went to this oh so yummy place called Barbara Jean's and ate the best crab cakes I have ever put in my mouth! But while we were out there was a terrible storm that knocked the power out at camp so we had to pick up the kiddos early. We still had fun, Peyton jumped around in the puddles!

We were sad to leave, but we are refreshed for the next year and ready to serve in the manner God asks! Count us in next year and for the years to come Massey's!
