Watching the Cats

One of Amy's clients had Kentucky basketball tickets they couldn't use for the last home game of the season, so Matt and the twins (who have become obsessed with Kentucky basketball this year - seriously, they watch highlight videos for fun in their free time) headed down to Rupp Arena for some basketball.

Great seats!

Senior Day has always been a big deal at Kentucky..

There is never any player more beloved by the fans than a walk-on, and Jonny David was no exception.

The other senior, Reid Travis, has been one of the girls' favorite players all season.

The customary singing of "My Old Kentucky Home"

One of Mom & Dad's all-time favorite Cats, Tayshaun Prince was honored as the "Y" in the spelling of KENTUCKY.

The Cats get the win!

A couple of happy fans

Fun Daddy-daughters time!

10 Years Together

It's unbelievable to think that ten years ago today, we met Essie and Chloe.  They are now bright, beautiful 13-year-olds.  They love music, movies, Kentucky basketball and football, Adventures in Odyssey, and John Crist videos.  They are kind and helpful at school.  They are hilarious.  Chloe is a talented artist, and Essie is our little chef.  Our family and our community are richer for them being here.

Soccer Season Wrap-Up

A.J.'s soccer season came to an end in disappointing fashion as his high school team was upset in the first round of the regional tournament.  Still, it was a very good year for A.J., who finished with 19 goals and 18 assists in 22 games and was named to the All-District and All-Region Teams.  Here are some shots from the season, taken by one of the soccer dads who is a very talented photographer:




A.J. found his way into all four of the pictures in this spread from our local paper.

All-District Tournament Team

We are very proud of this young man, not just because he is great at playing soccer, but because of the way he represents his school and his family as a player.

After a very disappointing loss in the regional tournament in a game that came down to a penalty kick shootout, the two teams gathered in a show of sportsmanship at midfield.

Congratulations to A.J. on another great season!

Family Photo Shoot 2018

We booked our favorite photographer, Moments Captured by Hannah, for our annual Fall Break family photo shoot, but Fall did not arrive.  It was 85 degrees for our "Fall" photo shoot.  Anyway, we went to the historic Ashland Henry Clay Estate in Lexington for this year's photos, and everyone was excited as always to get their picture took.  

Essie was our color coordinator this year and went with the orange and navy scheme.
