LIFE LATELY

Hello, Summer! 

We are SO glad to see you!! 

We finished up the last week of school STRONG and exhausted! Ha! Today, I'm sharing what we have been up to lately!

Cutter's team placed 2nd for the season and therefore made it to the City Tournament.

I snapped this pic during the game of Cutter talking to his coach during a pitching change. We have LOVED being on the Hot Rods this year and having Coach HIriam!

This kid played his heart out! We fell short 13-9 but these kiddos had a great season!

Carson had his last awards ceremony for elementary. Insert sad face HERE. He was a Million Word Reader this year, A/B Honor Roll, and was awarded the Musician award. He says it is because he loves to sing. He definitely loves a stage and audience! This kid is full of confidence! We are so proud of him. I cannot believe he will be in middle school next year! Eeeks!

We surprised Conner with a new truck! He came home one day last week from workouts and this was parked in the driveway for him! He was very excited! He just finished his sophomore year of high school. Only two more years at home! #timepleaseslowdown Love this kid!

And these two girls finished up college classes! Alyssa took a May term class these past few weeks after her spring semester completed. This girl is pulling a 4.0 and is a JUNIOR in college! So incredibly proud of all of her hard work! 

Side note - last summer Alyssa and her roommate, Kayla (on the left) spent the summer with us. We had so much fun with pool dates and shopping, cooking, game nights, and watching Big Brother together! This summer they are out of the dorms and in an apartment and are both working therefore they are staying in Waco for the summer. We are going miss having them home! 

On Saturday, this happened...

My nephew, Josh, graduated!! 

Oh my goodness, we could not be more proud and excited for him!!

Conner and Josh are very close. Conner is really going to miss him when he leaves for college in the Fall. Until then, they have a summer to make more memories! (P.S. It was 100 degrees here Saturday and Josh threw his hat at the end of the ceremony. Thus, crazy hair! We still adore him but his Momma got it fixed after we took these few pics! Ha!)

Joshua Martin, you have no idea how much all your little cousins love you and look up to you! We love you BIG! 

That's our life lately! 

Happy Monday, friends!

LIFE LATELY

It's TUESDAY, friends! 

I hope your week is off to a great start! Today, I'm sharing a little life lately around the Ferry house! 

First, how cute are these two?!!

They chose to take flowers to their teachers on Monday for Teacher Appreciation. Sweet boys! And someday Cutter will learn to smile in photos. I promise he wasn't in pain! Ha! 

 

Last week something HUGE happened on the baseball field...

Cutter hit a HOMERUN!!!!

Now, technically, it was an in the park homerun, but in this Momma's book it doesn't matter!

HOMERUN is a HOMERUN!

And for Cutter, this truly was a big deal. Last year, Cutter was at bat in a game and when he hit the ball, the bat came back and hit him in the mouth. It broke 3 PERMANENT teeth! #ouch Needless to say, he has been very traumatized. This year, he has not been swinging the bat AT. ALL. Fortunately, he has walked quite a few times this year but he kept telling us he wants to swing and his body just won't do it. BLESS his sweet heart! Then last week he swung and grounded out to 2nd which was BIG! But the next game, he hit the HOMERUN!

Carson has been pitching some this year and is LOVING it! #justlikehisdaddy

Cutter played his last soccer game for this season.

We celebrated with burgers, cheese fries, and shakes!

We have been watching baby bunnies in our backyard. Carson has been fascinated by them and taking pictures to school to share with his Science class.  So cute!

Carson went on a camping trip to Lake Brownwood with our church and caught a fish! He was PUMPED!

In 5th grade, every year they read the book The Castle in the Attic and then each student creates a castle of their own. Carson had a vision and it turned out great!

See his catapult on top? He's very proud of that idea! #anditworks

And that's what we've been up to lately!

Alyssa is finishing up college finals this week and Conner is 16 so we simply don't see him too often. Ha! 

We have 4 baseball games and 3 basketball games this week so you'll find us in the gym or at the baseball field. 😉
