April-May catch up!

How is it that May is almost over with???? Here we are, had our last day of school and ready for our 3-day weekend! 

What happened in those two months? Well let’s see…. 

Faith got glasses 

Finally got her show Steer- aka- Little John😀

She sung in …dare I say...LAST Children’s musical🙀🎶

Probably had her LAST kids egg hunt at church
Can I stop now… I feel the tears wailing up!

We had a fun spring break with friends at Rigbys Sports Park!


Faith is a determined little girl & very smart! She’s finished the school year with AB Honor roll for the semester at GCA and is advancing to 6th grade! A middle schooler!!!! Wooowho!  Although, she misses friends, She will be homeschooled next year by a wonderful teacher… ME! Lol! No more elementary for the Walker academy! 😭 Looking forward to what he future holds for this spunky little thing!

On to McKenna…

She’s growing up and such a growny young woman. Ulta is her new favorite store (Lord help us) But, she’s still my little girl! Most days you can find her working in the show barn with her cow Opal! She takes it serious, and she’s very responsible! She has Veterinarian dreams and I pray that she soars! We have plenty of animals on the farm to keep her busy too! She’s finished up the school year at GCA and is moving on to the 8th Grade! OMyGosh!  She’s already excited to be enrolled with Abeka for next school year as she is loving being a homeschooler! 


See.. growny! Lol! But, we love her!

Now Our Bman … he hates when I put anything about him so I’m gonna do it up right! 

He got his two show steers however I only took pics of one..??? This is Rocky! He’s a short horn..& just a big ole’ baby! He’s going to be great in the show ring I believe. Bman also got a Hereford Steer from Brogden Farms! His name is Copper, he’s in the process of getting halter broke right now and he’s a beast! Can’t wait for show season!

This was Bman’s third year with the Dodge Co. shot gun team! He qualified for state at the Vidalia meet with shooting 23 out of 25 clays. He’s a Great shooter! Many days at practice he would shoot a 24/25! How he does it is a mystery to some but I know he gets his skills from me, of course! Ha! The state meet was held at Rock Eagle and it was A WET messy day… but there’s was NO cancellation even in the rain! Who knew??! He scored a 21/25 .. not his best but dog on it that’s pretty good to me!!! Proud of him! So thankful to the Great coaches he has had in shotgun! These men do a fantastic job!

 

As much as Bman loves hunting and shooting he loves fishing too! He hooked this monster of a crappie in January, and we got the mount back last weekend. 

He was one happy young man, who now holds bragging rights! No more smack talking from this Momma,, well not for awhile anyways.  Broughton will be returning to public school next year at his daddy’s alma mater. He is excited about the .. 11th grade. 

How in the world ??!!! 11th grade?!  He’s a good kid! There are no complaints here. God has blessed us! Truly he has! Oh! And I guess I should add that he’s a pretty darn good rumy player too! Beat us all at our last family game night! 

He’s also a good driver but cares nothing about driving much. ?? We are working on those licenses and in the next month I should be able to send him on errand runs! Lol!!  

April and May flew in and out just like that! We are getting ready for these June blessings…

  • Oklahoma Cow Camp 
  • Soccer Camp
  • South Dakota mission trip
  • Lake Oconee youth trip

It’s gonna be a busy month yet again!!!

Happy Birthday to my little Man!

I can NOT believe that I have a “10” year old in da houze!!!!!!!
He is Sweet, & Kind to his little sisters… wellll….(sometimes)

like in this cute picture!

He attended his first FCA meeting this year! This was big at our house, because his Daddy has worked with FCA most of his young life. Now he is finally old enough to attend meetings.

HE has ALWAYS been “All Boy”!! He loves Exploring,.. fishing.. & hunting!

Lately.. his newest thing is.. playing with his “Airsoft gun”! So, guess what kind of party he wants to have?……….. Maybe I’ll have more pics on that next week.

**sigh*** wasn’t it just yesterday that I was planning a …”Pooh Bear party”

(insert ..another…BIG **Sigh**)

excuse me while I cry a litl’bit!

okay.. I’m back..

In honor of my little man… I wanted to share an AWESOME book for all you Mom’s to Boys.. It’s called The Runaway Bunny!

It’s just so sweet.. Boys are adventurous, they like to live on the edge a little bit, but most.. love their Momma’s deeply. This book is about an adventurous bunny who tries to tell his mom how/where he’s going to runaway.. but, Momma bunny always has a come back.. like.. I will be right there!!

If you don’t have it.. GET IT!!! I will ALWAYS treasure those nights.. reading this book to my little bunny. He still remembers it,.. and occasionally.. I will still read it to him. Just to let him know.. Momma is always here!

Tonight we celebrate Broughton style.. his menu :

  • Chicken Tenders WITH HONEY MUSTARD! (if I forget the HM.. I’m dead meat)
  • Mashed Potatoes- HOMEMADE
  • Mac-N-cheese

Yup!! That’s my boy! An “ALL STARCH” kind of meal! lol! Yes, now I know what some of you healthy mom’s may be thinking… “where is the green stuff”..

…well, it’s not on the menu tonight girls! It’s my baby’s 10th! 😉

HAPPY BIRTHDAY B-MAN!!

MOMMA LOVES YOU SO MUCH!
You will still be my little cuddle-bunny won’t ya?……

pleazee??…..
