Totally forgot....BLAKES GRADUATION!!!

On June 26th Blake graduated from residency!!!! It truly was a great feeling to complete this leg of the journey God is taking us on! Only HE can be credited with our survival and growth as believers and a family!!! I am incredibly proud of Blake and how he has loved me and the girls, and now August, though the demands of residency tugged him the other way! Praise the Lord for his grace and no more residency!!!!

We left Auggie out of this one!

My precious friends who went through ophtho residency alongside us!

Our hubbies were graduating together...we have def formed a special friendship!

Proud wife:)

The graduates and Dr. Klein


Cmma(Christian medical ministry if Alabama) couples we worshiped and went to bible study with each Monday! We miss y'all!!

She can be sweet...

Sage is quite the defiant one...anyone who is around her knows this! But, of course she can be as sweet as sugar! She has a funny view of the male gender and has for about the past 6 months. She always asks if "the daddy" is going to be wherever we are going and says she doesn't like "him". But, the funny thing is, she is more interested in being with males than females when it comes to family...such as her own daddy, cousin, uncles, pawpaw, and pappy! She really enjoyed hanging out with her uncle Brad a couple weeks ago when he came to visit...and Montana caught it in action on my phone! Thanks Mo!! Isn't it sweet?

Here she is sleeping on the stairs yesterday. I asked her to go up to her room until I finished feeding august and this is how I found her....sleeping so innocently:)

Five years old!

Can't believe it! Really?? No way. Yes, my firstborn is five and she Couldn't be more excited! I just returned from school after having lunch with her in the cafeteria, meeting all of her classmates, and eating cupcakes! What a treat for me( I plan to make a habit of lunch dates:))!! She made my heart melt just before I left by announcing to her class "isn't my mom the sweetest"!!! I cant help tearing up to think how God has blessed us with a beautiful, inquisitive, kind-hearted little girl like you Montana! We love you and remember august 25th like it was yesterday! Praise God for you!!!

Simple things!

The girls love boiled eggs so I boiled a few extra yesterday when I was making chicken salad. So, after we picked Montana up from school it was a craft and snack in one!! They had the best time drawing on their shells before peeling and eating!

Mo had another one with breakfast this morning

Blake admitted last night that Montana starting school really snuck up on him! I think we are both in shock!!!
To say she was excited would be an understatement!! The whole Booth bunch loaded in the car to bring her this morning. She remained excited until our goodbye hug at the classroom...I didn't want to let go but I knew I had to because she was going to react to how I did. Then, Ms. Mandy, her teacher, gently grabbed her hand and there she to kindergarten! Ahhhhhh!!! We pray that you shine like Jesus, Montana, and have a great year learning and making friends!!

It's been a wonderful and crazy 9 years of learning how to better love, serve, and glorify God...and we still have a long way to go!! Blake had this gorgeous arrangement delivered yesterday and we celebrated God's goodness in bringing us together and blessing us with our three children:). Praise the Lord!

**and happy anniversary to both of our parents who have exemplified God's love and grace through their marriages!!
