God is Father

Since God is, before all things, a Father, and not primarily Creator or Ruler, all his ways are beautifully fatherly.

– Michael Reeves, Delighting in the Trinity


We practice simplicity when we intentionally arrange our life around God-what he is doing in us and in this world-and let the rest drop off.

– Jan Johnson, Abundant Simplicity

The New Blog Format

Well, we’re moving and it seemed like a good time to reboot the blog.  It will be a little different now.  We’re going to try to make it easy on ourselves and focus more on photos and less on writing a lot.

So, with any luck discipline we’ll post a least a photo a week.

Hope you enjoy,

Jamie and Holly

Away He Goes

We went to reach Grady to ride a bike and it turns out he didn’t need any help. He just figured it out himself the first time.

Wow he’s growing up fast. Sure do love that boy.


Grady’s Last Day of Kindergarten

Today was Grady’s last day of Kindergarten! We started by taking pictures, like we did for his first day — then we went a little crazy after school.  We might have put a pool in the back of the truck and decorated it when we picked him up.

Before School:


After school, Daddy Got in the back while Mommy drove:


Hawaii 2010

Holly and headed off to Hawaii last week. It was a combination Happy-9-Year-Anniversary and Happy-Being-Done-with-All-Things-Cancer Vacation.

What a gift it was! We mostly just camped on different beaches, talked, and read. I didn’t take many photos, but here’s a few:

Big Snow 2010

We got more than 10 inches of snow yesterday — breaking every Dallas record for snowfall.

Holly is doing great — much better than expected.  After getting to bed early she got up at 5:00 am to make her mom scones for her birthday.  So, her pain is obviously well controlled, and she’s in great spirits.

Here’s some fun pictures and video from today:
