Support Officer Darren Wilson

A message from my husband Corey...

To all friends, neighbors, and acquaintances
Here is a plea for your help and support. If you have ever thanked a veteran for their service, or told a policeman or fireman that you appreciate their sacrifice and dedication, I am asking for your support now to assist a brother in need. 
Now, while I may not be a police officer and understand the exact nature of their daily struggle, I am a veteran and I am a firefighter and I consider the men and women who serve as police officers my brothers and sisters. 
Please join me and my family in support of Officer Darren Wilson.
Support can come by way of something as simple as a blue light on your porch, or as generous as a donation (click here to donate).
 T-shirts are also available for those of you who have the courage to advertise your support to the public who needs to see it the most
Everybody loves to criticize these brave men and women who are there to serve and protect... until it's their turn to ask for the serving and protecting. We are ALWAYS there to help you when you call... now it's time for you to return the favor.

Thank You to all who choose to stand in solidarity.

What we did this week

We slip 'n slided like champions. 

And played whatever this game is for forever. 

We taught ourselves to ride a bike without training wheels... all alone, before our 5th bithday (yay!!), and sans helmet (not so yay!!)

Sent the boys off the school!!!

Nate- 2nd grade, Sean-1st

We sent Claire off to kindergarten!!

We took the standard porch photos, because, well... you just gotta. 

We worked out our sillies first thing in the morning. 

And we oozed with the excitement for what the new school year will bring.

Feeding time at the zoo

I must say the phrase "you guys are acting like animals!" about 10 times a day. After lunch yesterday, I have come to believe...

that maybe they aren't the only ones to blame for this behavior. 

But sometimes you just use whatever works. 

And with 2 weeks left before school starts... 
what works right now is just...
