{A random post // Mason and Gunner}


Goodness, I feel like I haven't blogged in ages. Call it a blogging rut...or just being plain exhausted. Puppy training is hard y'all. I haven't done this in over 7 years or so and forgot just how taxing it truly is. And then throw in a four year old that doesn't quite understand "puppies" just yet. Mason loves him dearly, but gets so frustrated with him. He isn't loud & stern enough with his no's and Gunner thinks he is playing instead. 

Tiring, I tell ya.

Nate was selected for Jury Duty that lasted 6 days. So, he was mentally exhausted when he got home.

Plus, the whole puppy potty training thing. Ugh! Gunner is real good about going outside, but homeboy is also perfectly fine with popping a squat in the house. I blame it on the fact that the boy never touched grass until the week before I got him. And, well, he is a boy.

Lucky they're so dang cute. ;)

In other news...

We are addicted to Ozzy's, a snowcone place around the corner from us. Like seriously. Plus, it's a million degrees in Texas and what better way to cool off?

I started the Sermon on the Mount bible study with She Reads Truth this morning. I am excited! And, I love starting each day out in the Word.

This weekend we are camping at Mill Creek Resort in Canton, TX. It's a super nice park with 2 awesome pools and a whole bunch of Fourth of July festivities to boot. I am excited, but also exhausted already. It will be our first trip with the puppy. And 6 people and 1 pup in a camper. Whew!

That's about it, I think.

Do you have any Fourth of July plans?
