A glimpse into the busy and very blessed life of the Jones Family!

The Latest.... doing awesome as a 1st grader! He loves school, adores his teacher, and is making us so proud in all that he does. He is playing on the Thunder Bullets soccer team with some friends. Daddy is helping coach. He's had a great season so far and scored several goals. He is also playing Fall Ball and doing great. He's gotten several good hits and made some great plays in the field. He is staying busy with golf lessons each Tuesday, soccer practice on Thursdays and games Saturday and Sunday. He is reading up a storm and continues to be so creative. He loves to come home and draw, color and create. He's always trying to invent something, write stories, etc. He also loves to throw the football with daddy, race, ride bikes, climb trees, and do all the "boy" things. He's such a sweet boy! Hard to believe he will be 7 soon. Seems like it's so old! having a great year at school in Ms. Jennifer and Ms. Amy's class. He's the "life of the party" according to his teachers. He is busy with golf lessons with Hunter and his friends and keeps up with the big boys and all that they do. We are so impressed with his persistence in that area. He is also on the Mustangs soccer team. When he's not being a stunt man falling on the ground, he's having a great time playing the game. He's made a few goals- sometimes in the wrong goal, but whatever. He's loving being on a team and doing a great job. He is really into action figures and plays with them a lot. He also loves football and is very obsessed with the uniform, the helmet and the game itself. He will be 4 in a couple of weeks, so we are planning another Tailgate party for both Blake and Luke. It will be fun! We are incorporating all sports into the party this year. One of our favorite things that Blake says these days is, "Of course" when you ask him a question.

Emily....well, she is nearly 3 weeks into potty training and has done great. The weekend before we left for Jamaica, she decided she wanted nothing to do with diapers anymore, so I bit the bullet and we went for it. No turning back! She has done great and is very independent about it. She is loving school more and more. She is singing a lot these days- loves to sing Itsy Bitsy Spider (esp the part about WASH the spider out), says the Way up High in the Apple Tree chant that I said as a child, loves to sing I'm a Little Teapot and knows her ABC's. Crazy! She still loves the color pink. She loves to play baby dolls and is such a little mommy. I love to hear her talk to them and watch her take care of them. She loves to help me around the house. I find her "cleaning" things, sweeping, helping vacuum, etc. I can use all the help I can get!
