Meet Daphne

We have been waiting since January to get another kitten and we promised JL he could get one for his birthday. I have been looking on Petfinder and animal shelters daily looking for one. On Monday we found Daphne. I fell in love with her picture and we went to go and meet her.

She is 8 weeks old  and is such an easygoing kitten. I warned the boys we might not see her the first two days because she might hide under the bed, but that did not happen. She ate, drank and went to the bathroom within the first 30 minutes of bringing her home. She has slept in JL's bed every night since we got her. Charlie is great to her! She is the perfect cat and we could not be more pleased.

Spring Fling Carnival

JL's elementary school had their Spring Fling Carnival Last Friday night. We invited Gavin to come along. The boys had a ball! There were games, bounce castles, rock climbing, face painting, hair painting and so much more. We stayed for 4 hours and the boys said they felt like we there for 30 minutes. Time flies when you are having fun!


Silent Saturday

Last Saturday was Silent Soccer Saturday. The kids thought it was great! The parents and coaches thought it was hard! Jamie came to visit on Friday night and to watch the boys play the next morning. Jamie is moving to Brazil in July, so we are hoping to get another dinner in with him before he leaves. The boys and I had a fun time making posters for the game. They were proud of their signs!

Rules and Expectations for Silent Saturday:
Silent Saturday will apply to age groups U7-U19 (ALL programs).

Spectators- No verbal communication to the field at all. None!!!!!  Clapping at goals is allowed, as well as low toned comments to your sideline mates. Any comments that can be heard by the players, coaches, or ref’s on the field are prohibited.  Be creative in how you show your support! Bring pom-poms or a rally towel in team colors. Make signs with your team name or player number on them. Just no noisemakers, such as whistles, cow bells, or air horns. Georgia Soccer rules prohibit these.
Coaches- No verbal communication to players on the field. Restrict your coaching to before game time, half time, when calling for subs, and after the game. You may speak quietly to the subs waiting. 
Referees- You are encouraged to remind coaches, and spectators that on this day all verbal communication will come solely from the field. You are in charge of the field of play and any communication that must be made by you to ensure a safe, fair, fun game is played is expected. Reminders of the guidelines may be required, up to and including stopping the game if necessary.
Players- PLAY! Enjoy the game and your ability to play it well! Speak and provide direction to each other as you have been coached to do. Subs waiting on the sidelines must be silent as well, so as not to replace the coach.

Swan Coach House

Ben's two aunts hosted a Family Bridal Luncheon in honor of Martha Jane about two weeks ago at the Swan Coach House in Atlanta. It was only family and so sweet. The food was great and it was nice to have Mammy and Grandma Walker there as well. June will be here before we know. We can't wait!


John Lawrence's 8th Birthday Party

John Lawrence had his 8th Birthday party at a Gwinnett Gladiators Hockey Game. We invited his 4 cousins and 2 friends. There were 8 kids total, which really was the perfect amount. Sam, Hudson, Walker and Henry spent the night as well. It was a fun night! Aunt Allie and Uncle Dan came along as party chaperons. We really appreciated having 2 more sets of eyes at the game. Thanks Guys!


After Pictures- Carpet

Here are the After pictures of the carpet. We love it! It is so clean and fresh. It makes everything feel so new. I told Mason it was time to paint next. I am on a roll!
