Parra Family

My Uncle Jerry came up to visit his nieces this weekend.  It has been so great to see him!
Grandpa Jerry and Finn at the City Band Concert.  6.25.15
Finn is loving time with him too!  Jerry met us at church this morning, and then we all met with Zapata and her family in Lithia Park for her 18th birthday, which is Tuesday.

My youngest sister, Indy, Jerry and Finn.  6.28.15

Lithia Creek fun!

Uncle Jerry and Zapata, Indy and I.

Sisters, sisters...

Birthday girl and her cake.

One of Trever's coworkers invited us to his house to pick blueberries.  He was going to give us half of what we picked, but he ended up giving us more than that!  They are delicious!!!  He lives across the street from the Applegate River, so after we got hot and sweaty in went to the river and cooled off!  And almost caught a crawdad.  Almost.  :)  

The pictures are backwards, from end to beginning, but you get the idea.  ;)

Spying on the frog Carson found during picking.

Froggy Friend.


It was hot!!!

We are having crazy hot weather!  Hope you are being able to stay cool!  It is a bit ridiculous if you ask me.  Oh well.

A New Bag

Is this not the cutest little sleeping bag ever?

I mean, really?!!!  :)

Carson got dressed this morning for church.  Gabe got himself dressed also.  Then I picked out clothes for Finn.  Without planning it, they all ended up matching!  4.26.14

A beautiful reminder of God's faithful promises.  This was taken yesterday morning at our church before 7am.

A "train."

Cozy brothers in bed.

This spidey tooshy is too cute!  Finn has been doing an amazing job at potty training. 

Gabe and his Yankees team.

This is what happens during Gabe's baseball game.

This "Yes Her" video was taken last night.  4.25.14.  Man!  These guys can make me laugh so hard sometimes!

Things have been moving at a super fast speed.  To catch you up quickly,

I now have a 8, 6 and 2 year old.  :) 

Gabe had his birthday party at a indoor pool!

Using his new bow&arrow.

We had Grandma and neighbor Heidi over to have brunch and watch Big Hero 6 with us.

Gabe. 6.  <3 br="">

Mama with her growing son!

I now make my own deodorant.  And it works great!  I sweat less, I don't stink.  EVER!  Not even in the mornings, before I shower.  It is awesome.  And so easy!  It is 4 ingredients.

1/3 c coconut oil
1/3 c arrow root
2 T baking soda
15-20 Essential oils (I use Purification from Young Living)

I emptied out the SURE deodorant since it so awful for us, doesn't work as well and isn't being used and smooshed my homemade stuff into it this morning.  We will see how that works tomorrow.  :) 

Trev shaved.  He went from this

To THIS!  

I successfully through Trever a 40th birthday party 4 days before his actual birthday.

I think that about sums up what we are doing.  We are working on school.  As much as we can.  CC will be done in short 3 weeks!  And school school will be going through the summer.  Math and reading and maybe some writing too.

My CC class on St. Patrick's Day.
  Carson has become a major book warm!  All.the.time.  :)  Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful he got the book bug, but when I ask him to come do something else, I do get a bit of some attitude.  :)

Yes, he is reading like this?!!!
 The boys do a lot of this

This last week, World Series pitcher for the Kansas City Royals, Jeremy Guthrie was in town.  He is from little old Ashland Oregon and went to the big league. Jeremy was my classmate and graduated a year before me from Ashland High School.  He signed a couple of things for us.  It was really fun to see him again. 

Gabe holding the flag out, so Jeremy could sign it.

Happy Spring Time to you! Hope you are doing well.
