About Us

We are a family of four and a half- Seth, Bethany, Blevin and Caleb and another little man on the way. Seth is on staff with Campus Outreach and I (Bethany) stay at home with the boys and sometimes sell Usborne books and am making some attempt to homeschool. Blevin is almost five and is the compassionate (most of the time) Transformer and super hero loving boy. Caleb is almost three and keeps me on my toes- there is never a dull moment with him around!!

keeps me on my toes....

well- as you all know caleb makes life fun and exciting. last night he woke up and joined the party with everyone and then while I was getting ready to go to bed i noticed he did not follow, but he was so tired that i just figured he was laying on the couch because that is what he told me he wanted to do. i was wrong- i walked into the kitchen and i found him with his hand in the sugar jar that i have by the coffee maker eating sugar!!!!! i should know better by now to always worry that he is getting into something. the picture does not do it justice- but his nose does look a little blurry...that is sugar!!! then he wanted to change clothes and he wants to pick out all his own clothes and put them on - so he picked out a shirt and put it on upside down and backwards and he is so stubborn and i get so tired of fighting him on everything that i let him sleep it in just like that!!! The Lord knew I needed some entertainment in life!!!!

the happy couple...

one of our staff guys- matt- proposed last night to bethany. We got to be part of the whole thing- which I loved!! we all went to dinner to do some of our "pre-engagement" counseling and then seth wanted to them to go and spend some time praying together (which was when he was going to pop the question!) so we dropped them off and they went to this cute little chapel on campus and he did his whole romantic, sweet thing (He did good!) and then we had a suprise party at our house afterwards so she could show the ring off and do a lot of screaming!! It was fun and we are so excited about their marriage!!
here is the happy couple....

Two weekends of fun and a really long post!!!!

Well I had great plans to post our last weekend fun last week...but ya know- it never happened- so last weekend....seth went out of town so I got to hang out with my two bff's all weekend!! on saturday we went to the zoo on saturday because it was such a beautiful day- unfortunately everyone else in atlanta had the same idea- but we made it through and had lots of fun!!!
My little chicks in the nest!!
What do you think about it Mr. Goat?

Brushing the goats- this is one of the few pics I got of their faces-all the rest of them are of the backs of their heads!!

Riding the see-saw in the playground after seeing all our favorite animals!!!
We also got to hang out with the phi mu's a lot last weekend we went to their philanthropy event and then on Sunday we went to Family Day!!! It was fun meeting all the girl's parents and the boys enjoyed all the attention- as always!!!

Friday afternoon we went to the Braves opening day- we had about 50 students that went and all tail-gated before and then went to the game- the boys LOVED it!!
Playing football and cornhole!!!!

The fam- notice the black clouds in the background? Yeah that was a thunderstorm that caused a rain delay in the 3rd inning!!

Two of the sweet Phi Mu's- rachel and alexa- both are in my Bible study and going to Beach Project!!!!!

I did not take my camera in because of the rain- luckily it paid off to be in the cheap seats because we were covered because we were so high up- the boys eyes were so big from trying to take it all in and then it started to rain and hail and the wind was blowing like crazy- I figured we were okay cause surely someone was watching the radar and all the security people were in the field, so I figured if there was a tornado- they would atleast get their people to safety- After waiting it out for 45 minutes - we decide to just go when there is a little break in the rain- well the "break" was over by the time we reached the front gate and we all got soaked going to the car!! Luckily- I had clothes for the boys and me and seth were just wet- but it was so fun!!!

Saturday.....the boys went to waffle house with their daddy for breakfast and let me sleep and then he took them to see Monsters vs. Aliens yesterday afternoon and then of course we dyed eggs and we did our Easter prizes last night because Seth went to the Masters today so he would not be here today.....

As if that was not enough- Seth's brother- Shane came to spend the night with us so they got to wrestle and play with Uncle Shane!!

Today.....After many conversations about why we celebrate Easter- I hope that Blevin understands more and more why Christ came to die and why we need a Lord and Savior- He can answer all my questions about it-but I hope it is more than that to Him!! After church we went to eat with Terry and Mary Ann and then had an easter egg hunt! Each child had a certain number of eggs and they could only find the ones with their first initial so the big ones would not find them all!!

It doesn't take long for boys to wonder why their mom is trying to take pictures of them?!?!

I know I am bias- but these are two little studs!!!

Caleb and the girls looking for their eggs

All the kids- 4 of the 5 were happy- that is pretty good!!!!

man I love these kids!!!
