Hillcrest Dads & Kids Campout

All my people just came back in the door from the most precious time camping out with other dads and kids from our church.  What a wonderful chance for them to get to spend time together outdoors with some of our favorite people!
We are so thankful for Mrs. Melinda & Hillcrest Kids for all the work they put in to making this happen.  The daddy and kids of Team Davis had a great time!

Love these hard little workers!

fun & games while the dads finish setting up

So much cuteness in this tent!!  
I can't wait until I'm squeezed right in there with them.
We got this tent as a wedding gift 13 years ago,
and are still getting good use out of it.

cutest little scorekeeper I've ever seen!

One of the things I've been praying for Lana since we made the transition to Hillcrest was a close bond with other sweet girls who are Jesus-followers.  Thankful for time like this weekend for her to make some memories!

Getting ready to eat dinner!
hamburgers and hot dogs, chips, and drinks

A good old fashioned game of tug-of-war!
They played even more fun games:

flashlight scavenger hunt

snipe hunting

 Tucker declared this "the worst part of camping!"
and said "Mr. David scared me so bad, mommy!"

This was his FAVORITE part of the trip!

Dad's Day at school

Today was Dad's Day at our school.
They got to bring daddy to their classroom for donuts,
and then shop together at the book fair.
We are so glad Dan is the daddy of Team Davis!

Round here

BSF started back last week, and we are studying Revelation this year.
It is going to be so good, I can tell - 
but no matter what we are studying, it's good.  Good for my soul.

A few weeks ago Lana and I and one of our precious college girls Miranda went to see the Hiding Place at Rex Theater.  It was incredible!

This little instagram post by Thrive Moms is such a great picture
of what the Lord is doing in my heart, especially in regards to my parenting these days.

And on a less serious note,
 this meme made me laugh!  Oh how I love Dan Davis!

 This little rascal is still the apple of our eye:

Tucker is still learning to skip.
He calls guacamole wok-a-mole and if anyone corrects him, I'll hurt you.

We just finished up our fall Mom2Mom sale!
As always, we found fantastic things (fall/winter clothes for the kids, speed skates for Dan, books, a few tops for me), AND we made as much from selling our things as we spent on new ones,
so that's a win!

6 weeks into the school year with my precious firsties:

This beautiful yoke hangs in Dan's office at work.
The beautiful Miranda made him that piece of art to go under it.
I can barely stop myself from stealing it off the wall
and bringing it home.

Pepper ran off and scared us to death a few weeks ago.
Thank You, Jesus, for great neighbors!
Of course Dan was not home that night, and I couldn't leave my sleeping babies
to go look for my furry baby!
Every one of the Everett men went out looking for her....
and they found her!

I got to make a quick trip to Dallas to visit my precious college roomie:

and meet her babies!!

Melis & I got to check an item off our bucket list and go to a Postsecret Live! event together.
 Postsecret is one of our oldest shared traditions,
right alongside watching Survivor.
 It was so cool to get to hear Frank Warren in person,
from fantastic seats!!  (Thanks, Melis!)

Lana is swimming again this season - 
it marks a year of being on swim team.
Look how cute she & her teammate are in their matching towels!

We recently read The Biggest Story devotional together as a family.
It is captivating, and this really beautiful picture of how the gospel is preached all through the Old Testament.

One of the reasons I love job sharing is that I get to still be mama to my little ones!
Tucker was thrilled I came to have lunch with him and we got to sit at the special parent/child tables.

13 years married,
and we still wake up with our pillows scrunched together in the middle.
I love him.

Speaking of our bed, morning snuggles are all the rage at our house,
and we actually have to allot time into our morning routine for them:

 We took our college students to a Maji:Hope event in Fairhope a few weeks ago.
This little guy couldn't make it all the way home:

Tucker's new thing these days is drawing lots of pictures
of playing golf with Daddy.
He loves to go golfing with Dan, 
and asks about it almost every day.
A wonderful older gentleman at our church gave Tucker a set of his own clubs!

I love the labels and arrows in the picture:

Sometimes he even includes Lana.
(That's her squished in the left side.)

What could Daddy do but take them out for a round of golf on Friday after school?
