The Last… Breakfast?

Last Wednesday, Ann Ferris enjoyed her “last breakfast” (of doughnuts, waffles and strawberries… AFC’s “special request” menu) before going to the orthodontist for braces. In the midst of the celebration, Sarah Wynn declared it her 4th birthday (again). Check out the #4 candle in her do-nut! :0)  I’ll post AFC with braces next (yes, this…

31-30

Okay, so I didn’t think Ole Miss could pull it off. But today they defeated #4 Florida in Gainesville. Unbelievable! Schaeffer and I were in Oxford six years ago for the tearing down of the goal posts when the Rebels upset the then #6 Gators at home during the Eli Era. We even went down…

Anniversary of Accident

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Sarah Wynn’s accident, when she was hit in the face (under the right eye) with a bat at a church picnic and had to be rushed to the hospital for stitches. We only had been in Atlanta for a week at the time and it was my first…

Licking the Bowl

No, this post is not about our dog. It is about Sarah Wynn taking matters into her own hands after Kristy made brownies last night. Sarah Wynn couldn’t wait until the brownies were out of the oven, and plunged her head into the mixing bowl in order to lick the remaining batter. I only wish…

Soccer, Tennis and SEC Football

Schaeffer’s soccer team, the Red Rangers, played a great game against a tough team. This week we made huge strides forward, and Schaeffer scored a GREAT penalty kick—a strong, well placed kick. Way to go, Little Buddy! After the game, the family ate lunch at home, then the girls went out shopping while the guys…

Wednesday-Friday Update

This Wednesday our family travelled up to Dahlonega to meet Cory and Tommy Jones, along with their two girls and Tommy’s cousin, Matt, at Caruso’s on the square to talk about the possibility of church planting in D’ga. Things are leaning heavily in the direction. He is the head football coach at the county high…

SWC Photo Shoot

Sarah Wynn posed for a photo shoot in the den the other day. Here are some sample pics.

Weekend Update, Braces and Soccer Pic

This past weekend saw a flurry of activity. From soccer practice and a game, to dinner with friends in Dahlonega on Friday night, to dinner with friends in Buford on Saturday night, to a Taste of Perimeter last night, to… whew! But it has all been great, especially the time with friends. And Ole Miss,…

Church Code Language

Tim Hawkins is one of our favorite comedians. Here he talks about code language in the church. REALLY funny.

Sarah Wynn’s Ballerina & Ann Ferris’ Heart

Sarah Wynn was inspired by a ballerina sticker and drew her own. I think she is quite the ar-teest! In other news, Ann Ferris had a check up last week with our family doctor, who was concerned that she might have a heart murmur. Thankfully, an appointment with a children’s cardiovascular specialist revealed that everything…

Keller on the Pastor’s Family

In this short video, Tim Keller, lead pastor for Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC, provides a dose of encouragement for pastors who struggle with being pulled like a wishbone between family and ministry. However, his advice is not just for pastors, but for any father and mother who is tempted to make an idol out…
