We had a visit from the Sharbono Family and turned it into an awesome dinner date at our favorite Baton Rouge burger joint...

Cille's 4th Grade Retreat

At the end of the longest dirt road that I have ever driven down, I found Cille's class at their 4th grade retreat.  I don't know how the school found this place in the middle of nowhere, but it was the perfect setting to get the kids out of their comfort zone and focused on growing spiritually and as a team.  The swimming hole was pretty cool, too...
Sunblocked, soggy, and sweet as they can be...

Cille conquered the high dive and enjoyed cheering on her teachers and principal to do the same...

Lord, please help these kids shine Your light for all to see!

Back to School!

It's time to head back to school!  Corinne was a little nervous about her first day of Pre-K, but Ms. Dolly was there to comfort her.  Mrs. Dolly is the first teacher to teach all 4 Pourciau kids, and she is an absolute treasure to our family...
Cille was excited to start 4th grade...
And overjoyed to have the same homeroom teacher that Stella had for 4th grade...

Again with the out of order photos...I am pretty sure this is the second day of school carpool with the ChamPour kids...
Our first grader...
Sixth grade....how can that be?


Walking the red carpet into elementary with her bestie...
Watts is so excited to spend the year with Mrs. Foval!  She was Cille's teacher in 1st grade also...
You can stroll down memory lane with me and revisit other first days of school at the links below:

Watts' 7th Birthday

Our little buddy is seven years old!  We celebrated with breakfast in bed in his new room in the new house.  Unfortunately, his room remodel to make the room more appropriate for a young man had not happened yet, so here is the old wallpaper in all its glory, as well as the hand-me-down girly bedding that he used temporarily...
Watts is always excited about gifts.  They are his primary love language...
We finished up the birthday celebration back at the beach with some cuddles from the sweetest little sister around...
Happy Golden Birthday to our Golden Baby Boy!

Pourbono Beach Vacay

The beach is always better with friends, am I right?  One of our favorite groups to beach with is the Sharbono family.  The parents have been friends since we were all young and wrinkle-free, and the kids have formed the sweetest second generation friendships...
One of our annual beach activities with each other is the death march down to Phoenix West to visit the Furlowe family...
Watts is always so thankful to have another boy around.  Pretty sure Jude feels the same way.  Having three sisters is tough...
Stella and Cille are missing from the photo because they had to go back to Baton Rouge for a dance convention on our beach dates...

Another Pourbono tradition is the scarfing of the cookie log...






It has been such a privilege to watch this friend grow from a college kid, to a married lady, to a mom...


Same time, same place next year!  But hopefully we can add Stella and Cille next time!  And the dads!
