Eat fresh!

Mike wanted some containers with the fixings that Subway sandwich shop has. So, here it is. Time to eat some subs. I bought a bin so he could pull all the containers out in one go.

On-line gamer

Kenny likes to play computer games. He likes Roblox. Jon commented that people playing stupid on certain games might be little brothers like Kenny. Kenny's brothers set him up on Wizards 101. Now he's dabbling in the magic world.

Water bottle band

Kenny plays the tuba.

The bacon genes

Kelly was cursed with the burning bacon genes. Hopefully she can overcome.

Saturday night clean

Jon shook the dirt out and the rug came apart. I guess the dirt was holding it together. Kenny got in the dirt path for a moment.


Remember how my washer broke last summer, it was repaired for weeks? That same washer, even with all of its new parts started flashing 'nd'.  Mike took the draining system apart and checked the pump. After hours of messing with it we started a small load, and waited. It ran until the spin cycle started then, no drain.  Mike and I then went to Lowes and bought this blue beauty.

Summer school

For Special Needs children that may lose skills over the summer the district offers summer school.  So Kenny has had to be at the school at 8:30 am, so much for sleeping in all summer!  He's really starting to talk a lot.

Scared of bees

Mike told Adam to water the flowers. He was afraid of being stung by bees by the Lavender.  He put on all his snow wear. He was not stung.

Megan turn 15

Monday, Megan had a birthday.

Kelly wins fourth all around

Kelly had a great meet on Saturday.

Kite flying

Since Kenny made a kite at school, I taught him the Mary Poppins "Let's go fly a kite".  So I bought two kites and waited for a breezy day.

Tornado alerts

Jon played wii with little kids during the tornado warnings while we were in the basement.

Kelly was just a little babe when Jon started kindergarten. Today, she finished Trails West Elementary School.  It was my first time at a continuation without a new baby. Hooray for Kelly!

Dirty bike

Mike has maybe washed the car twice since we bought it.  Here he is teaching Kenny the good habits of tearing your bike apart and washing each part.

Find it!

Kenny received a find it bottle in Sunbeams today. I found him emptying it all over the foot rest in the family room.  I had Mary Jane run for a bowl before all of it ended up all over the floor. He found all the things!


Mike texted me and asked why I sent so much for him to eat for dinner. I guess I thought he was super hungry. He said he ate the whole thing.

Just hanging out

With the dinosaurs

Adam had a game day today and he was the only one to bring a 'board game. Everyone else brought some sort of video game.

Mike on his bike


Kenny learns to fish with Papa.


Mike took the kids to the movies, The Avenger, and he called to tell me he forgot Mary Jane.  I quickly ran her over to the theater so she could go. Crisis, and tears, averted.


Kelly received a music recognition and one of the big citizenship awards. Jon got an award for Business.

ThinkGeek pin

Jon wore his pin to graduation.  He and Meg played in the band.

Bike Rodeo

For May's pack meeting the Cubs brought their bikes and did obstacle courses. The Deacons aka Patrick and others helped each obstacle. Adam freaked out when Patrick jumped on his bike and raced away.
