Busy, Busy!

I have been deliquent in my blogging this week because life has been busy.  Good busy, but nonetheless busy. 
 This sweet preschool girl and her class had a visit from "David's principal" for Read Across America day.  Not only did he bring them a book and a goody bag, but information for upcoming Kindergarten registration!  I would be so sad except for the fact that she is so excited!!!
 Sweet girl is growing up so fast! 
 Friday night our boys and some other Daddies and sons went to nearby Oak Hill to watch the gold team play hoops.  Hope and I headed to church to help with the all night children's ministry "camp in." Over fifty children showed up for the all night event at church.  Here is Hope helping Ms. Saunders set out the cupcake decorating station for the kids. 
 Here is Hope painting her prayer rock at one of the stations. 
 Hope and I did not stay all night but we stayed for the Friday night activities and the movie.  Here are Hope and Olivia getting snuggled in for the movie. 
 After the movie the amazing El Saunders did a goodnight devotion/story for all the children.  When I grow up I want to be like El Saunders!  She is a godly woman full of energy and love for children.  She is simply amazing! 
 Saturday afternoon we headed to a AAU tournament for Kyle and his basketball team.  David has to dress out in his own Hornet uniform and "help" the team on the bench.  The entire team is SO amazing to David and treat him like a teammate. 
 We love our basketball team and families.  We have spent many hours together in different gyms all over Virginia and East Tennessee.  We sometimes complain about the late nights or early mornings, but we have made some precious family memories together. 
 This picture cracks me up!  David typically sits on the bench with the team and helps "coach" with Mike and Coach Syd.  I love the hands on the hips from "Coach Dave"

Hope and Macy had such fun together yesterday and between games I brought them outside to run and play in the sunshine.  The boys won which meant that they played a fourth game last night which made for a long day for these girls, but between coloring, running, reading, and playing Ipads, they had fun. 

Today is church day and Upward basketball for David.  This upcoming week UVA is sending a video crew to our house to interview us for a video to be shown at the opening of the new Battle Building this June.  We love being a Miracle Family through the Children's Miracle Network which allows us to give back after all that UVA has done for us.  We are honored to be in this upcoming video and of course David loves any opportunity to have visitors here and to be in front of a camera!  Ha!
