Gimme More...

I can't quit posting about our last days of school- we have had a blast! Tonight the boys went to an "End of the Year" Party across the street. I wish that I had my camera- the whole thing was so cute!
My friend Cheryl emailed me these pictures & this is as large as they will post. (Hmmm...I need to look in to that) The 2nd pic is of the 4th grade singing the new school song that "they wrote" (the kids won't take credit- they say the music teacher really wrote it) & I missed it. This is the 2nd thing that I missed of E's. I also missed his awards ceremony- I am so sorry Ethan. If it makes you feel better- it made my stomach hurt for 2 days.

Check this out!

School's out for summer!

Jack after receiving his straight "A's" certificate- so proud!

Last day of computer lab at WCS

Mrs. Adair gave out awards to the whole class & gave them with a candy bar. Ex: Madison got Sweet Tarts because she was voted "the most sweet", Jaylee got "ouch" band- aid gum b/c she gets hurt the most. Ethan got an Almond Joy b/c he is "always happy".

Ethan & Madison have been in the same class 4 out of the past 5 years. She & Eli are moving soon- So, I had to take this picture (one last time).

Mrs. Adair's goof balls!

Jaylee, Ethan & Connor

These are Jack's best buds: Lauren, J, Eli & Caleb

Our sweet Mrs. Adair

We love Ms. Huddleston- we are hoping Lily Kate will be in her class next year!

Leaving WCS with Molly & Taygen. We will miss that place- mostly our Mrs. Rachel.
Okay, we come!!!

Connor, Jesse & Ethan with our new Kitties (whom I need to hurry & blog about)

Field Day Fun?

Jack & his class had to wear orange-
nobody wears orange on purpose.

Who are these "cool" kids & where is my silly 10 year old?

Oh- here he is...

Ethan & Connor

Ethan's teacher, Mrs. Adair, was so cute! She joined in on the fun. She was wacking anyone she could (and loving it!)

Ethan was glad she was playing- he was able to wack out a little frustration on his teacher (just kiddin'- we've got nothin' but love for that woman!)

Long Live The Jump Rope King!

SToRK ReuNioN 2008

We spent our weekend at Kerrville State Park on the Guadalupe River with my dad's side of the family. (The crazy ones) Everyone was there except my cousin Brian who did not want to miss his prom. My dad is the 2nd of 4 boys. There were 41 of us. I loved it- I did not want it to end. Being stuck with family with nothing to do but eat, drink, talk & swim is my idea of a good time! We are incredibly blessed to all enjoy being together.

Pipes (she said- "hey, my teacher calls me that!" when I call her "Pipes") & Lil Kate joined at the hip. I only know of one "fight" over the entire 3 days! They are being mermaids in the 3rd pic.

Ben, Rowan (please notice the pink shoes), Reese & Layla
1. 2nd & 3rd cousins
2. Shawn, Michael & Allison

1. Making hand impressions for the great gran-kids (Gramma's idea- she loves to make it like camp- so cute!)
2. My grandparents with E
3.Gramma Shirley & Lil
4. Sister Sarah & cousin Kristy (they are a grown up version of Lily Kate & Piper Ann)
*My grandparents now have 11 great gran-kids (all were there!!!)

The Guadalupe River

We had SMORE fun at night!!!
On our way home we decided to hike
up Enchanted Rock (outside of Fredricksburg) at 3:00 pm (SO HOT!)
The kids were awesome!!! The boys practically ran up to the summit. Lily never cried (though Donald did have to carry her the last little bit). I had been to the top in high school- it felt a little harder this time!

This picture pretty much sums up our Memorial Day weekend- we had such a great time. I LOVE my family!!! All 41 of them.

We're WILD about the ZOO!!!

In honor of the letter "Z"- Lily Kate's Pre-K class goes to the zoo!

We were blessed with AWESOME weather. I just knew it would be 95 & humid, but our morning was great!!! The sun did not really come out until around 1:00. We had a blast!!!

Robin & I took our crew to Barnes & Noble afterward for "chinos". I am so glad that Hayden did not get kicked out of the "library".
