swimming with preschool

Last week I went to watch Christopher's preschool class as they swam.

They had a really good time and it was fun to watch. After swimming he had a doctors appointment to see how his last surgery went. Good news, it worked.If all goes well we can wait a few years before doing anything else. He is going to keep his Doctor here and see him when we come back to visit in the summer.

Father's and Sons ( - the father part)

Alex loves going to the Father and sons camp out every May with Church. This year John was in New Mexico so we had to improvise. Christopher and Alex slept in the tent in our living room. They had a lot of fun and on the plus side stayed nice and dry when it stormed outside!

Hangin at the Scioto River

On Friday we
went down to play along the Scioto River that is by our house. I love taking the kids to skip rocks and just run around. We had a lot of fun and got some really cute pictures.

Suzuki and Orchesta performances

The end of the school year is almost here so it is time for all of the end of the year performances. Ryann had both Suzuki and Orchestra performances this week. It was bitter sweet knowing that next year she will be at a different school( in a different State).

This is a picture of Ryann and Sean. They started Suzuki together when they were six and this is the last time that they will be performing together. Sean is a sweet kid who just a week earlier lost his mother to cancer. They dedicated this performance to his Mother and he was such a strong kid during it. He and Ryann both lead songs during the performance.

Mother's Day

I was not expecting too much this Mother's Day with John out of town but Ryann and Alex served me breakfast in bed. Ryann also took care of both babies

so that I could sleep in. In the afternoon the kids helped me to make someone Else's Mother's Day special through some hard work. My kids Rock!

Sleep TIGHT!

The other night I went to kiss all my babies goodnight and this is how I found them.

Like Father , Like Daughter!

Anyone who knows John knows that that man loves his 44 oz beverage. All of our babies have followed in his footsteps and Brie is no exception to that rule. You can see the pure delight on her face at having 4 beverages.
