District Champions!

Before dating Caleb, I was CLUELESS about sports, and honestly, I couldn't have cared less.

Since dating and marrying him, he has gotten me to not only understand sports, but to actually love a few of them.

Probably the sport I've become the most passionate about is Volleyball. Simply because he coaches the girls Varsity team at his school. I've watched him spend so much time and emotion on his team year after year that eventually, his passion became my own.

I wouldn't consider myself as someone who brags very much, but since I'm not bragging about myself, I thought it would be okay. ;-)

Caleb and his volleyball team played Districts last Friday and they seriously KICKED BUTT!! I was/ am SOOOO proud of them!

I also have to mention that Caleb got coach of the year in his league! Again, SO proud! :)

Let me give a brief explanation as to how Friday played out (I'll try to keep it brief).

There were 4 teams at Districts and each team had to play all 3 of the other teams. The top 2 teams got to go on to Regionals (and then hopefully eventually State), and the other 2 teams were finished for the season.

The first team to win 3 games against the other team wins the match. So, in some cases, a match can go to 5 games. To win a game, you have to be the first team to 25 points. The winning team also has to win the game by at least 2 points.

Caleb's team played and won against all 3 teams and didn't even give up one game, not ONE! All of the other matches between the other teams went to 4 0r 5 games. And Caleb's team won most of their games by WAY more than 2 points!

So, since Caleb's team is District Champions, they get to host Regionals at their school this coming weekend. Caleb is so excited and nervous at the same time. I'm feeling the same way.

I can't wait to watch them play again this weekend. GO COUGARS!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
