Sorry friends, I know I have been a bad blogger and blogger friend. We have just been so busy and when not.. I have been taking advantage of every minute to rest and breathe. Just a few things that have been going on with us... this past weekend Bryson participated in a baseball tournament that was put together to benefit a local family whose mom has breast cancer. This kept us going all weekend, but it was for an amazing cause and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bryson was very happy to be apart of it, especially after all we have gone through with his sister (Bentley), he sees the burden these families go through and he was thrilled to help. Can I say PROUD MOMMA? You know it! Then we have been preparing ourselves for school to start back up. So that means school clothes shopping and school supplies shopping. Football practices have started, still riding my bike daily.. LOVE it.. playing catch up from the weekend, and all the stay at home mom daily duties. Oh and I have been going to bed early which is unusual, but it has been so nice. So I apologize for disappearing without any notice.

If you follow me on twitter, you will know that I have been twittering more. I have never cared for twitter, I just thought it would be helpful during Bentley's surgery. However, I think I have become addicted. If you do not have a twitter account, I would definitely try it out.

Also, I want to thank all of you that have commented the past few days (since Bentley's follow up appointment). I cannot even tell you how much your words of encouragement have helped. Seriously, I just sat and cried while reading them. What an amazing bunch of blog friends I have.

And I promise to be a much better blogger friend once the kids start school. We have a few weeks of summer left.

Now I want to know.. are you finished with your school clothes shopping? I'm not. Where did you find the best deals?


  1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment earlier. I feel so blessed to have friends like you from blogland! That is awesome about Bryson!

    Can you believe it's almost time for school again? We just started our school shopping this week. The Children's Place had some cute things. We don't have much of a choice of good stores around here, without going into Houston, which I try to avoid with 3 kids! :)

  2. No kids for me, but as I'm a teacher, *I* need to get prepped for school. :)


  3. No school for us yet, but that doesn't mean we don't shop! I love hitting the Gymboree outlets and sale racks and I like Target for her clothes too. Walmart has some cute fall stuff too.

  4. with 3 kids i too am looking for great back to school clothes deals and i have to share a great deal at gap kids/baby gap...buy one pair of jeans get another for $10...then also when you buy 4 pairs of jeans you get a 5th for free! check it out! i also agree that target has some good stuff too!

    *i am so glad bentley's post-op appointment went so well and she is doing great! she is such an amazing little girl!!

  5. Girl you have noone to apologize too. I have been horrible also and have hardly been on here at all this week. I'm trying to catch up but you know how difficult that can be :)

    Enjoy your time with your gorgeous family and we'll be here when you get back!

    As for the clothes shopping...I did mine at the beginning of spring/summer and got great deals at Old Navy and Gap..I did it during one of their specials...my kids have pretty much worn play clothes all summer so they still have brand new clothes in their closets...lucky for me :) New shoes..now that's another story!

  6. We haven't started school clothes shopping yet. My kids start school on the 19th so I probably should get started. Not sure where we will shop. With all girls clothes shopping gets rather interesting.

  7. Crystal,...It is good that life is going on as usual for you and Bentley and the rest of the family. I am glad that you have been busy with life!

    God is so good! I praise Him that Bentley is doing so good!

    And you have so many followers and peopkle that care about you,...we all understand if you can't make comments all of the time!

    Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

  8. Hey girl! I am so thrilled that things went well at Bentley's appointment. I am so glad that life is busy and normal for you guys these days. What a deserving bunch all of you are. I wish you luck with school starting back.

  9. Oh, by the way, I am now following you on twitter. I like to see what everyone else is twittering about but I very rarely post myself. I will work on that!

  10. This summer has been crazy busy for everyone. Seems so different from summers past. WE shopped at Justice, TJMaxx, Children's Place & the Gap Outlet. Love those places for great deals! Take the coupons with you too, you can print them off line.

  11. stop by our blog :) when you can, we have a little award for your blog :)
