Recent Activities

Oh, we have been soooo busy....all of the following has taken place in one less than ONE week!

We'll start with the fourth grade play. This is the line dance Bradley's class did. He is in the front row with the red t-shirt on. Bradley as William B. Travis in the play.
The clowns helping Jake back up after he fell off his bunking bronco in the Kindergarten Rodeo.

Jake got to hold the American flag for the opening ceremonies.

Jake receiving his Kindergarten diploma!!!

Bradley's end of the year awards assembly. NONE of the teachers or aides were allowed to hire subs this day! I was distraught. Thank God my sister was able to come down and go for Bradley! She was a lifesaver!!!

And, since DeeAnne came down with Mikah, my parents also came down. We even got to celebrate Jake's birthday a little early with cake and ice cream!
Mikah playing with the Thomas trains!

The boys playing trains...this used to be Bradley's FAVORITE toy ever!

On June 6th, Jake will be 7 years old! All he wanted this year for his birthday was to play putt putt. We were going to go on his actual Birthday, but if we went tonight, Celebration Station had $1.99 games per person. It was an awesome deal, so we went ahead and celebrated tonight as opposed to a busy Saturday night.

Jake's pose for his Hole in One!!!

Jake, Bradley, and me posing for our Hole in One....all on the same hole! Poor Randy having to miss out on this momentous occasion! And, please don't ask about my pose...not sure what happened there HA!

There's nothing like opening your preasant in the Celebration Station parking lot...

And, this is what happens when you let you'r almost 7 year old have too much fun, and too much sugar!!!

San Antonio

What an amazing weekend! We had a great time at Randy Snyder's wedding this weekend. We even got in a quick trip to the Alamo and River Walk. We will for sure sleep well tonight!

These published backwards...oh well. The groomsmen holding the boquets.

The first dance

Bradley walking in the jr. bridesmaid. They were both 10, but she was taller (even without the heels) Jake walking the flower girl into the reception. We had to work with both of the boys to teach them how to walk a girl by the arm.

Handsome boys!
The wedding party Randy Snyder's little brother Josh.

Snyder and the boys!
Boat ride on the River Walk.

River Walk My boys defending the Alamo!
Snyder visiting with the boys at rehearsal dinner.
Us at rehearsal dinner
These are all boys that Randy coached at Ferris. We didn't know they would be in the wedding so it was a nice surprise to see them all. The one to the left of Randy just graduated college ready to coach and teach math!!! The guy to the right of Randy is Snyder. This weekend definitly reminded us all the hard work of coaching and teaching is well worth it!
Shanna and Randy at rehearsal
Jake walking the flower girl I said we had to work on the whole linking arms thing :)
Fuzzy picture...should probably erase it but oh well.

The front of the Incarnate Word cathedral...beautiful!
