On Memorial Day we took the boys out to Terry and Laura Dean's to go fishing! It was a fun time! I decided to actually fish. I have boys! I'm going to have to learn to like these outdoor sports! What does it mean when you can't move your arm for two days after fishing? Peyton was VERY interested at first!
After getting his fishing hook hung up for the 100th time...he gave up and decided to make friends with the bait!
It sure was hot!!! Next time we will have to start earlier!
Garet was the first to catch a fish!
YES...I even fished AND I caught something! OK...So, it's little, but it's something! (Yikes! I look really "butchy" in this pic! Not very girly at all! Oh well...I guess I look the part!)
Here fishy, fishy, fishy!!! (Just kidding!)
Every fisherman needs a break!
Not pictured....Auburn caught a HUGE bass! I saw it flippin around out there! His fishing pole was bent and he was having to use his muscles to reel that sucker in and all of the sudden it was gone! It broke his line and swam away, hook and all! Gotta hate it when that happens!
Hope your Memorial day was safe and happy! Thank you to those who serve unselfishly every day for my freedom!

OK... It's not Amber! It was Garet!
I had a very scary Mom moment yesterday. I hope I don't have another moment like this for a long time! You may ask, " Why is Carrie posting this?" I'm posting this because I believe that bad things can happen very FAST! I believe that we can't be to careful in this world that we live in today! I don't think we should freak out, but just be AWARE!
After school yesterday I was busy in the kitchen. I had about 10 things going at once. I was preparing hamburgers for about 25 people. Garet came in and said he was going to Andrew's to see if he could play. I said , "It doesn't look like anyone is home, but you can go see!" Garet has two little best friends that he plays with daily. They live across the street. We have lived in this house for four years and the kids are very close! They would play 24/7 if they could. It's not unusual to have 10 kids playing on our corner! It's a very busy place! I've never worried about Garet playing between the three houses. Between us, The Dukes and The Spillars... I know someone is watching. We have never had any issues. I know that I can look out the window and SEE the boys! Yesterday was different. It was VERY QUIET! It didn't look like anyone was home from school and work yet. BUT, boys can be hard~headed and Garet had to see for himself. I got busy and didn't realize he didn't come back home! I got ready to run an errand and I started calling for him. Nothing. Silence. Very Quiet. I walked to the end of the driveway and screamed louder. Nothing. I didn't panic yet! I thought maybe he had come back inside and was in his room playing his games. (Funny to think I would loose my children in this tiny house!) He wasn't here! I walked to the Dukes and started bangin on their door. Nothing! I walked to the Spillars and did the same! Nothing! I ran to the shed and his bike was gone! I started to panic at this point! Garet isn't allowed to ride in the street because we live on a very busy corner. I knew he wouldn't go off on his bike. I got into the car and drove up and down the rode... honking and screaming! Bad thoughts started to enter my little head. Panic mode was setting in! I couldn't breath. I couldn't feel my arms and legs! Auburn was on his way home from work. I called to tell him that I had lost our son! He told me to hang up and call the sheriff. Yes... the police! I was freakin! I was running down the street screaming like a fruitloop! I finally heard his voice! I can't describe the relief I felt! I was screaming, crying, thanking Jesus and cussing!!!!! He had taken it upon himself to visit a friend down the rode (out of his play territory) without letting me know! I don't even know the kid! Didn't know that he lived there! SCARY!!!!! When I got back home, the troops had been called in! Within 5 minutes, members of our church staff were pulling into my driveway! They had dropped EVERYTHING and come running! I love my church! I love my church staff! I love my christian friends! I love the body of Christ! JD kept me from killing Garet and he received afew lectures! Thank you Jesus for happy endings!
Did you know that my little town has 7 sex offenders within 1 mile of my house? When I researched this I discovered that I knew one of these men and didn't know that one piece of info. about him! Our world is sick and there are sick people out there that prey on little children! I was thinking of these sick people the whole 20 minutes I was searching for Garet! I'm not posting this to freak you out. I posting this to inform you! Do you know who your neighbors are? Do you know who your kids play with and who their parents are?
Visit http://www.familywatchdog.com/ and put in your zip code! It shows you their pictures, where they live, etc. Do your research moms! Keep your kids safe! Sorry for the long post! Just felt I had to share!
