So Much To Update

First of all, I want to say Thank - You to those of you that are still around.
I know that I have not been blogging much lately, but it is about to change.

This summer brought about so much and I wanted to try and update you..
Make sure to come back tomorrow, as that is a good one ;)

Up first...
Broxton finished Kindergarten.  Where did the time go?  Seems like just the other day I was sending him off to preschool and crying as I walked back to my car.  (Day 2 was harder than Day 1 of preschool, since he did carpool and I literally saw him growing up as he walked in the door!)
Well, we now have Kindergarten out of the way and I guess before long he will be headed to college. How does time fly like that?  It can slow down whenever it wants!!!  We all knew he would be finishing school for the summer, so it wasn't a shocker... but so much was going on.

My granddaddy passed away.  Yes, I was sad... selfishly sad.  He was 80 and led a great Christian life.  He suffered from Dementia and Alzheimer's, so we had already lost him before.  As I said, selfish to be sad, but hey... it was my Grandaddy.  The service was a nice one, but my Mema is still having a hard time adjusting to losing her husband of 62 years.  If you are one that prays, I would love it if you could lift my Mema up in prayer to find peace in all of this.

As if that wasn't enough... My mom went to the doctor and they found an issue with her Kidney.  She ended up having to have her Kidney removed and the mass was in fact cancer.  She is good now, as they got it all out.  No chemo or radiation was needed, but it sure is a scary thing to hear cancer and mom in the same sentence.

Remember I was also pregnant while dealing with all of this, so besides my normal high level of emotions, we got to add in the pregnancy hormones and you can just imagine.

No, this was not a sad post, although sad things happened.   Broxton (and mommy) survived Kindergarten.  My granddaddy is HOME now and is back to being his old self.  My mom is on the path to being more healthy!

Come back tomorrow so you can read about the happiest part of the summer.  The below picture is right before we headed to the hospital.


  1. I'm so sorry about your grandfather. I'll pray for your Mema.

    Great news about your mom's cancer being removed in surgery, so she doesn't need chemo or radiation! I think those are worse than surgery.

    I know what you mean about kids growing up. Mine starts college next week! Enjoy every moment!

  2. I'm sorry about the C word, and it's so sad when people that we love pass. I just remember being so sad when my grandma passed, and I imagine it was super hard for you! That's a lot to have happen in 1 summer!

    Broxton will love 1st grade. There's so much growing they do between Kindergarten and 1st grade. The kids know what's expected of them.

  3. Thank you for the update and looking forward to the next post. Will pray for your family.

  4. My deep condolences for your Granddaddy, Noelle. all the best for you and your family..

  5. Sorry to hear of the loss of your grandfather. I've said a prayer for your family.
    You're right, kids grow up way too fast.

  6. I'm glad to hear your mom didn't need chemo or radiation. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandfather. I totally understand being selfish when someone passes, I felt that way about my grandmother.

  7. Many hugs and prayers Noelle.
    Life is like that eh. We just have to trust God and prepare for what comes.
    So glad your mom didn't need any radiation!
