Fruit on the Bottom

Yogurt is a favorite breakfast food for me. It’s not necessarily the taste of it, but the fruit on the bottom. I get disappointed when I accidentally purchase the wrong brand, and it’s already mixed up. That is my favorite part… digging that spoon to the bottom and bringing all those chunks of fruit to…

Back To School Project

Our teens love this mission effort as we go shopping for children in need to purchase necessary school supplies for them and select an outfit or two or three for Back To School. The teens are given a budget and a time limit. We unload the buses, and they are off to the races. Target…

Contentment

Do you love Disneyworld? During our last night on “The Happiest Place on Earth,” we found a perfect spot to watch the fireworks in Epcot. We were there two hours early and even found some time to take a much needed nap from the miles we had walked throughout the week. The kids were getting…

Happy

Over Spring Break, the Bassetts allowed the Pruitts to tag along with them to Disney World.  We called it the Pru-Setts Vacation. As we approached the front gate, security escorted Kim and Jackson into the security “Bag Check” line. There were two lines, but Kim’s line seemed to be going much slower but also filled…

Influence

Congratulations to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Growing up in Birmingham and being an Auburn Tiger all my life, rooting against the Tide has always been normal for me. We all wanted to see a great game last night, and we did. Both teams consistently exercised extreme discipline and are loaded with talent. I’ve been a…

Relentless

This past week, our family was at the beach, and for some reason, we had the entire beach to ourselves. Maybe it was because a cold front moved to Destin, Florida, and the sand was as cold as ice. It didn’t stop the Pruitts from enjoying our family and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The…

Toughness of Training

5. If you have worn a hole in the passenger floorboard attempting to brake for a 15 year old training to drive. 4. If you have gotten car sick from your 15 year old attempting to stay between the lines while training to drive. 3. If your heart rate has increased to the point that…

Remind

Do you invite reminders or do reminders frustrate you? Growing up, my parents reminded us daily to “clean our rooms, put our dirty clothes in the dirty clothes hamper, dinner plates don’t have legs – put them in the dishwasher, do our homework”, and the list goes on. Now that I’m a parent, I find…

Labor Day

Labor Day is a national holiday dating back to the late 1800’s and is now a day celebrating organized labor, and this holiday also marks the end of the summer season. I had heard for years that you aren’t supposed to wear white after Labor Day, but I never knew why…so I researched it. This…

Process and Progress

So many people have asked me if I built the sandcastle from Big House, and I kindly tell them, “No, It was a team effort.” I do find sandcastles therapeutic and much fun. They are definitely a process, very much like us. Foundation is key to a successful castle, and many times, it is where…
