RAKE 2018 Day One

We have had a FUN 1st day!!

We started with buying someone coffee...and me too! ðŸĪĢ (it is one of our favorites)

Then we went to get some supplies at HEB. While we were there, the kids took some carts back for some elderly customers who were THRILLED. ❤️

At home, we cooked up some goodies and delivered them to our favorite librarians. And to our neighbors! So FUN!

Now we are home planning for tomorrow.

Day 1 ✅

#Ezra #2yearsinHeaven #MissYouE

Would love to hear about your day!

Two Days from RAKE

You guys!! We are getting EXCITED! Friday we invade our cities...with kindness! The kids are picking out their Acts of too! If you would like to join us, just comment. I can email or mail you some leave behind cards. :) It really is simple, and FUN!
If you are just joining's the scoop:
In honor of Ezra being in Heaven 2 Years, we are celebrating with 1 week of Kindness.
We will be doing acts of kindness for the whole week. Friday, February 23rd- March 1st. With special emphasis on March 1st of course!
How can you help? Please do an act of kindness (or many) in honor of Ezra during this week! They can be simple or complex...whatever you want to do! When you do your act of kindness, please give them one of the “Ezra Cards” So Easy! My dream is that together we do hundreds of acts of kindness this week! The world needs some kindness! What better way to honor someone...than to bless someone else in their name!
One of the reasons we settled on Acts of Kindness is because we wanted to be able to involve our kiddos! So, please, involve the kids! They will often lead the way with their tender hearts!

Five Days to RAKE 2018

Friday is the beginning of our week of kindness for Ezra! (It is almost impossible to believe that we are 10 days away from E's Heaven Day.)

Would you join us again for year 2? It's easy. It's fun. All the kiddos can help! There are so many different simple things you can do to show someone kindness. And honestly, it honors our sweet Ezra's life and fills our hearts all at the same time!

Throughout the week we will post ideas and pictures of some of the Acts of Kindness that were done last year.... And then on Friday, we will hit the streets ready to bless the people!

If you would like the Ezra pass along cards, please comment below or text me. I am happy to send them in the mail to you, arrange a pickup time (if you are local), or just email you the pdf file so you can print them yourself!

Thank you, friends....for walking alongside us. Thank you for helping us see the beauty from ashes. We are always thankful. Always.

*Feel free to share...invite your friends, your students, your small groups, and your families... let's bless ALL the people this week!

The Things Boys Say

At Office Depot the other day getting somethings printed.

Izzy looks up at me and says: “ mom, I don’t think I am going to go to the bathroom good today.”

Me: silent ðŸĪ·‍♀️

Izzy: “Mom! I still can pee, but poop is going to hurt!

Me: ðŸ˜ģðŸ˜ģðŸ˜ģ

Nice people in the print section of store:😂😂😂😂

Me: ok bud...I’ll ask the question...why are you going to have trouble?

Izzy: “Because at swimming I ate some ROCKS..They don’t really taste like anything! “

Nice people in the print section of store:😂😂😂😂

Me: “Hmmm, hey bud, we (you know humans) we don’t eat rocks. 🙄🙄

Izzy: “I know Mom I just wanted to try them! The inside of the rocks are not bad!”

Your welcome people of Office Depot ðŸĪĶ‍♀️ðŸĪ·‍♀️ðŸĪĶ‍♀️ðŸĪ·‍♀️😁ðŸĪĢ

Later...turns out he ate his friend’s favorite rock! ðŸĪŠ. Boys are weird. ❤️Izzy
