Me and Kara . . .
Me and Jenny . . . This is after poor Kara had to take an early flight home due to Kidney stones!! We missed her our last day and night, but are glad she was able to make it home. Darn those Kidney Stones!!!
We had alot of fun! We even worked in a "chick-flick" -- I think it's the first movie I have seen at the theater that didn't involve animation or a talking animal in like a year! I am glad that Richard planned this little get away for Jenny and that I got to enjoy it as well! AND - hooray for Hubby of the Year . . When I returned the laundry was all done, the house was in good shape and the kids were all in one piece . . go super dad!

This is the piece that won the blue ribbon!
Here's another one by Jayden "Trees in Autumn". He even knows the different types of medium he uses. . . he is really taking an interest in his artwork.
Here's one by Kyler - they used a cup lid to make the circles.
Here's one by Evan, he is studying dinosaurs this week.
I think Uncle Mike will be proud!

My boys were there to cheer me across the finishline! And eat some snacks and hangout on the square (the best part)!

Quote from Evan and said very frequently these days! For instance ... the entire packet of fish food was floating in Kyler's new fish bowl, all I said was "oh my goodness" and "E-eVan" -- from the other room you hear "NOT MEE--E-E!" ---the other boys were at school! Or if I say "somebody put change in the dvd player" you hear "Not mee-e-" -- you get the picture!
". . . because girls are SASSY and they laugh alot. . . FOR NO REASON AT ALL!" (and add a shoulder shrug with hands in the air.)
Quote from Kyler to explain to Jayden why when he grows up he doesn't want to have girls, he wants to have boys!
"-@#*#, *$#@, and mindless woman" (not used at the same time!)
Quotes from Jayden as soon as he enters the car and has learned some new choice words and expressions from a particular third grader! What's up with the third grade?! He doesn't know what they mean, or that they are bad, until Kerry or I freak out. The principal was called by the time a third choice word was spoken -- he no longer sits by that third grader anymore!
also--Baseball season has begun -- tonight included Kyler's practice and Jayden's practice and scrimmage game. Jayden is hitting the ball this year --yay. Remember last year - like one hit the entire season and being scared of the pitching machine - no more! However, he is doing some serious smack talkin' -- after his base hit tonight and then the kid after him struck out he told the kid he "sucked" --getting a little to big for his britches already -- plus, again, not liking that choice word!
