Summer Review~ May 2012


Another Blog!! Now that school has started, I feel like I'm beginning to know my name again. :-?  Routine and structure suit me real well!!! :-)

May 2012 seems like a long time ago.  I'm going to jump back and give a few highlights from our adventures.


Kelsey had an early 10th birthday party celebration with some friends from school.  Nothing like a houseful of giggly girls!! Fun times!! :-)

Kaden took birthday snacks to school to celebrate his 7th birthday.  The day before his turn,  a boy brought KU cookies.  He came home just dying to take an MU treat!!! hahaha  Request granted.  Big rivals out here.  His teacher thought it was great, she's a Missouri fan as well.  :-)


Couldn't get these pics. to turn.....ggrrrrr....
Khara competed in math competition  and we were very proud of her results!! That her grandma was the math coach, added to the happiness!! 



Kelsey at her awards assembly.  Both of the girls received awards for All A's all 4 quarters.  A great reminder that hard work pays off.


Thankful for children who love school!!  The end of another great school year! 




May 25, Kaden turned 7.




We were so happy to have lots of family here to help us celebrate.  Cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and greats.




Enjoying the birthday party meal!


The chickens were the pet of choice for that day!!


I'm beginning to think I have a fear of heights.  I was determined to hold on tight to little Elijah. And, even tried to explain what would happen if that fence gave way.  ((( shudder)))))

Cousin fun!!!


Kendall and Leanna came the last part of May and we met Taylor.  Taylor and Jackson (Phil & Dana's) the newest family additions!!!!

What a great month of May.  Up next.... June!! :-)

I am ever so grateful to have stumbled on your blog this morning and find out that I'm not the only one trying to play catch-up. :) Where did the summer go?

I enjoyed getting to know you a little better this year at Ochelata. Owen is STILL talking about you and Mr. Mark. :) Thanks for making his week the best week of summer. :)
