Ethan's Awards Ceremony

Ethan's school also had an honor's award ceremony this week.  
Ethan earned the Social Studies award. 
He also got the Spanish award, and the math award.  

He finished the ceremony by receiving an award for all A's!!
Nice job, Ethan!

Athletic Banquet

Ethan's school put on their very first athletic banquet.  

He got a soccer award and a scholar athlete award. 

We are super proud of this guy!

Harriott II Field Trip

Lincoln's class went on a riverboat cruise on the Harriott II.   
The cruise provided Chick Fila for lunch.  
After a few hiccups involving another's school lunch, we were off on the river.  

The kid's loved exploring the deck.  
We finished early and I checked out Link for the rest of the day! 
I have really enjoyed being able to go on his field trips this year! 


Marilyn came in for one last Alabama Hurrah!  On her last weekend, we decided to go to Birmingham to eat at Flip Burger.  We had few hours to kill before dinner so we tried Escape Train. 
AND....we escaped!!  We all had a great time!  Way to go Team!

Kickball Tournament

The fourth and fifth grade classes compete in a kickball tournament at the end of the year. 
 All of the classes have been practicing all year!
Lincoln has taken this very serious!
His poor class was first out in the tournament.  

He was very bummed, but everyone had a great time! 

Bowling and Blood Sugar

I went with Link's class on a bowling field trip.  Link started off happy and quickly turned so sad and upset.   I could not figure out why he was so upset until the pizza came!  He scarfed it down and miraculously he was much happier!  
Bowling and low blood sugar do not mix!

Lincoln's 10th B/day

Lincoln wanted a low-key birthday this year.  
He asked for lots of accessories for his Nintendo Switch.  
He asked for one friend from school and two friends from church to spend the night.  We also invited all the Foley's to come for dinner and playing.  
He also asked for a homemade sheet cake!
I like these easy birthdays!

To top it off, we had Baumhowers for lunch and asked the workers to sing to him!  It was perfect!


We decided to try the sunrise Easter service this year.  It started at 6:00 am.  
They had the service out in the pines.  
This goober snuggled up to me all service.  I think he wanted to go back to sleep.  
Afterwards we enjoyed Cracker Barrel.  I am pretty sure Nate and I were napping by 10:00!  

Lincoln Honor's Awards

Lincoln's school put on an honor's award ceremony last week.  

Lincoln received all A's.
He also got a certificate for AR reading.  

One of his teachers is moving away and he also read part of a poem to her.  
I checked him out early again and we enjoyed some yummy Starbucks as a reward!
Way to go Lincoln!

Lincoln Soccer

Trip to Texas

 John passed away in April.  We were able to celebrate his life at a really nice funeral.  
 Paul, my cousin, officiated the ceremony.  

My aunt and cousins came in for the funeral.  There were lots of friends too!  
It was a nice celebration of his life! 

 We were able to stay a few extra days!
The boys enjoyed loving on their Granny.  

Saint Louis, Missouri

 We decided to take a different route home.  We stopped in Saint Louis to see the arch!

Garden of the Gods


 We had the best time in Colorado.  We visited the Academy. 
We signed the lease on our house and toured Ethan's new school.  
We played some mini golf.  

We picked Aaron up from school each day! 

 The boys (Nate included) loved playing each evening!
