This week the girls got to spend some time talking with LA Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and his wife Ellen about their new book "Arise," as well as the couple's heart for their charity work.
Denise walked the pair through their story of how "Hope's Home," the orphanage in Zambia the couple sponsors, and "Kershaw's Challenge," the donation plan the two set up for Clayton's strikeouts each season, got started.

Well I must admit that I totally forgot about doing my blog for today until we were walking out the door to go to the movie. I write to you now during the previews of Madagascar 3. :0). Such commitment!!
This weekend my in-laws are visiting from Michigan along with Caroline's cousin Cole. They have so much fun playing together- they are very close in age and she has been really excited about his visit. Here is a pic of Caroline and Cole with Grandpa Phil.
In other news, Bella is mad at me b/c she had to get her yearly exams and shots. She was poked and prodded, but a good patient I'm told. Doesn't she looked a little ticked?!
Sorry this is so short today-
I hope y'all have a great weekend!!
This past weekend, the girls discussed texting while walking or driving. Shelley and Denise confessed to doing it sometimes but felt it was still a rude thing to do. There's potentially a fine for doing so now!
You've probably experienced this, whether it be someone else or even yourself, so listen to the clip from the show, then share your thoughts!
I'm writing this while sitting in a small Mexican food Restaurant in Jefferson city. I brought Spence here for a TN All Star football game. They practice at Carson Newman Univ. it reminds me a little of Ouachita Baptist where Shelley and I went to College. Once you drop off your son they do their own thing. Spence has been thinking about this game for 2 months. They get to play in Louisville, ky on Sat. It's TN vs KY. I can't stand not knowing what's happening at practice, so I'm staying til tonight's full pad practice. I have no where to go all afternoon, so I came in here to eat and get out of the heat. I guess my next stop will be Walmart and Big Lots:).
This is the job of a Sports Mom and i wouldn't change it for anything. I will head back tonight.
Last night Spence and I hung in our hotel room and watched the Thunder vs Heat. What an intense game! Thunder fans are awesome and the players are even better. It's going to be quite a series I think.
Well that's what I'm doing today. Maybe I'll see if there is a movie theater around here. Have a great day Denise
Happy Birthday to Dana... happy birthday to you!!! Today we celebrate Dana's birthday!! However, he was so adamant about NOT having a party or anything that resembled a celebration (thus no pictures) so we had to oblige. Ugg!!! (That is impossible... it's YOUR day babe... we have to celebrate)...But we did talk him into a nice dinner later (with the family only) and one gift that he had been wanting, Cracker Barrel's exclusive An Evening with Dolly Parton Live and THAT'S it!!! Yay, he is a cheap date!!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. We are starting the countdown to our vacation in S.C. with my family. 12 days left until we leave for Myrtle Beach. The only thing I dread is the bathing suit shopping. I am growing by the day and I may just have to settle with a large T-shirt and elastic shorts...
We would love to hear about your family vacations and even your summer activities. You hear about all the things we are doing and we are also interested in your adventures too. Post some of your favorites on our Facebook page - we would LOVE it!!
Happy Birthday to all you June babies - and celebrate (if your husband/wife/family with let you)!!!
