High Five For Friday

Hello! Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday link-up with Tif@Bright On A Budget, Katie@Cup of Tea, Caitlin@ Coffee With Caitlin and myself. We hope you enjoy your visit. 




Every week we feature a blogger and this week's featured blogger is Rachel @ Garay Treasures. Rachel is a stay at home mom of 4 who was previously a special education teacher. She blogs about fashion, everyday life, faith and children. She is a woman of strong faith who has really inspired me. Some of her recent posts have been so uplifting. Rachel has become a great friend. I hope you will take the time to view her blog.



Well I must say this has been a much better week. I have actually had the chance to relax and that has felt so good. I hope you all have had a good week too. 

1) Raylan went swimming for the first time ever last week. He absolutely loved it! He splashed and splashed. It was so much fun watching him have a blast. 




2) On Saturday, our oldest nephew graduated high school. It's so hard to believe he is actually old enough to graduate and go to college. I am so proud of him!



3) I guess it was a week of firsts for Raylan. Justin and I took him fishing for the first time Sunday evening. He loved being at the lake but he was a little scared of the big fish that Justin caught. In Raylan's defense,  the fish was almost as big as him lol. 


It's so hard to get a photo of Raylan looking anymore. This was us fishing. 


Justin's fish that scared Raylan lol!

4) Many of you may not know, but my brother has been through a lot. Yes he has a learning disability but that does not make him any less of a person. He is by far the most intelligent and wittiest kid I know. He has overcame so many obstacles that the doctors said would never be possible only with the help of God. Anyway I just want to share this photo with you that he took himself. Lately he has taken an interest in photography so I have been working with him. I asked him to take a photo of anything he wanted and he said "The Sky." I am so proud of him and this photo. I think he did a great job! To some of you it may not be much but to me it's a lot. I'm glad he is learning to like a hobby. I'm a proud sister. He was so excited when he took it!


I just wanted to share this with my wonderful blogging family. I think he did great!

5) While Raylan was napping, I crafted a 4th of July wreath. It's simple and doesn't have a lot done to it but I like it!

Don't forget to link up with us below...Have a blessed weekend!
