Abby @ 18 Months

Abby is now 18 months old!

Her personality is developing and she is becoming more of an individual.

As the weather is getting warmer, she loves to take walks around our neighborhood. Andrea and I are amazed at how far her little legs will go until she gets tired.

Its fun to teach her new things and watch her examine her surroundings.

Nashville Ballet

Andrea, Abby, and I went to the Nashville Downtown Library to watch a free performance by the Nashville Ballet.

Abby enjoyed watching the dancers jump and twirl around the stage. Their costumes were elaborate and creative.

After the show they had the little girls and boys come up on stage to act out some ballet moves. The moderator of the performance was describing the next ballet move they were going to make while one of the little girls started jumping up and down by herself. It was so funny to watch as all the other girls started to jump along with her. It was like a chain reaction!

If you have children ( girls or boys ) you might be interested in these free performances for kids.

For a list of upcoming performances in the Nashville area check out the Nashville Library Events page.

Frist Center

I surprised Andrea by arranging a Baby Sitter, thank you Amy Jo Green, and taking her out on a date.

We first went to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. My favorite attractions were the Pop pieces by Andy Warhol and the Model Citizens exhibit including carved wood sculptures composed by Bob Trotman.

After our cultural experience we then proceeded to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. The company, food, and dessert were excellent.

We both enjoyed the time we had investing in eachother and in our marriage.

Financial Peace University

Andrea and I just started attending Financial Peace University created by Dave Ramsey.

The 13 course walks you through making a working budget, getting out of debt, building security and wealth, and much more.

We are very excited about this course and have heard many good things from friends and family. We are now taking one baby step at a time!
