Back to School, Back to Work!

Aaaannnddd again...it's been too long!

Fast forward to this year!  :)

Caylie is now a freshman in college at Ouachita Baptist University.  Corey and I, my mom and dad, as well as various aunts and uncles have all attended OBU, so the OBU legacy continues!

Carson began kindergarten this year, and Christian began high school.  I am substitute teaching at the school that they attend (the school that Caylie and Christian both used to go to before we started homeschooling), and so far, so good!

Just to be clear, I absolutely LOVED our homeschooling experience, and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, but with Carson starting kindergarten in a family without other young siblings, we decided that going to school would be the best thing.  That decision then led to the decision for Christian to return to school, so I just followed along as well!

So...that brings us to where we are now.

Rush week at OBU was a couple of weeks ago.  Caylie is pledging EEE...the same social club that I was in.  As predicted, last week (pledge week) was a hard week for her, with so very many tasks to accomplish, but this week is already proving to be drastically different!  Corey and I, as well as my parents were all in social clubs at OBU, and we all have lots of great memories and continuing friendships from those days!  We hope that she will have similar great experiences!

Christian is doing well in his classes at school, and is also in off season training for football.  He works out with his football team constantly, and it is a good thing, because he eats like a horse, and is growing like a weed!  He and Corey are getting so close to being the same size!  AMAZING!

Carson just started his first season in Upward basketball.  Corey is his coach, and Christian is the assistant coach.  Their team is called the Mighty Hippos...fierce, huh?  So far he only had one game.  We have high hopes for a fun season!  :)

In other news, Corey has become an avid cyclist.  He has ridden in several different events (including one in San Antonio, Texas), and he loves it!  He has accumulated lots of bike gear, and when he's out on his bike, he is the real deal!  This picture was taken after he did "The Big Dam Bridge" 50 mile ride here in Little Rock this past spring.
