Family Photo Shoot 2019

Our usual annual family photo shoot got rained out this year, and with schedules making it nearly impossible, we were so thankful to have an opportunity to take family pictures at Matt's sister's wedding near Red River Gorge.  Here they are, courtesy of the wonderful Crystal at c.heis Images & Designs.

The Lion King

The Broadway musical of Disney's The Lion King came to the Kentucky Centre in Louisville this month, and were excited to get to see it!  It meant a late bedtime on a school night, but it was totally worth it!

A.J. Soccer Recap

A.J. had another successful season of high school soccer in his junior campaign.  The Colts finished 12-8-2 with a District championship and were Region runners-up.  A.J. was a team captain, All-District, All-Region, and All State Honorable Mention, with 20 goals and 8 assists.  It was clear how much his teammates and opponents respected him both as a player and a person, and we are so proud of him.  Here are some pictures from the season:

Check out this quote from an opposing coach:  "A.J. has pretty much been that same player all the way through middle school. Super fast, super skilled. He plays a good style soccer and he's a good kid and a nice kid. You like it when the good players are also good people. He's at a rival school or whatever, but it's easy to root for him when he's playing other people."
