Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Memories in picture.....2005

Turkey Creek Sanctuary

He asked me to put this on him...then promptly began crying...I just had to snap a quick pic before I helped him get it off!
Brother love...
No pool this summer...but they had a blast in the sprinklers.
Face painting done at the Grant Seafood Festival.
Best buds...wow, I miss this family!
Silliness...

They LOVED riding the Metro.
The D.C. house.
Reading is fun!
Refrigerator spelling...
The kids are 5, 7, and 2.5 here....this wasn't the piscture we gave out but it was one I really liked.

Memories in picture....2004

Bundled up for the Florida winter.
Our lone rose...all the rest had died and we had to document this one, I guess.

Love this picture...

Playing football
Logan's first Auburn game. They went to one when we evacuated to Alabama due to hurricane Frances. We soon had to evacuate Alabama back to Florida due to hurricane Ivan.
Her first fish...almost as big as she is.
His first fish...can you see it?

Do ya think their ready for the pool?
Getting ready to dig in.
I'd say his first birthday cake was a hit.

Funny boy!
Worn out from a busy day.
Zonked!

Corbin was our biggest laugher.
They loved to climb our Magnolia tree.

Life as Corbin was so exhausting...
Such a proud big brother!
Climbing the wall at The Edge in Melbourne.
Had to get Corbin on it...
The pony...it was a big hit!

The last 'real' birthday party the kids had...turning 4 and six.
Howdy, pardner!

Memories in picture...2003

Communing with Grandpa.
Playing in the front yard..
My nephew just being the cutie that he is.
My other nephew feeding Corbin...so sweet.
Fun on the slide....
For some reason Corbin loved to suck on my chin...and it tickled so much!

They helped Daddy make me a birthday cake...would've been my 28th I think.

We left the kids with a sitter and went to the shooting range...a work event...I did NOT enjoy the shotgun shown here. I was much better with the rifle and pistol and those were way more fun!

November of that year...helping me with one of our many garage sales.
Sleeping on the couch...

They spent a LOT of time swimming in our little pool that summer...wish we had one now.

Chillin' with Daddy...even our 'big' boy looks so tiny next to his dad.

Loving on their newborn brother, Corbin.

Logan, wow! I can't believe he was ever such a little boy...he's 12 now.
Always Daddy's little model...

This was typical of Hailey when she was 3.5...loved her horses and walked around carrying as many as possible.
