Cousin Adventure #2 The Splash Pad!

It's hard to believe that it's already summer and already time for Cousin Adventures to start!  BUT it is so today we met at the park to make our shirts and play in the splash pad.  It was also our first summer cousin adventure with little miss Olivia!  YAY!

Our T-shirts this year are some of my favorites.  We used Sharpie's and rubbing alcohol.  The kids got to design their own and it was WONDERFUL! It made a mess of Mary's blanket (oops) but the shirts were cute!

Then the kids had fun in the water!  It doesn't take a lot to entertain 8 boys:)

3 Strikes!

 As crazy as it makes life I LOVE baseball season!  This year we only have Isaac and Lucas playing.  That makes me a little sad but I know that they can't do it all forever!  Lucas did Start Smart baseball and then both he and Isaac are playing on baseball teams.  They are both so good and love it so much!  I have so much fun watching them!

The Very LONG Awaited Air show!

We LOVE the air show.  There was supposed to be one last September but they cancelled it, so when we got the dates for this one we were SO excited!  So in true "we've been anticipating this for so long so something has to go wrong fashion" it was the biggest rain storm in a weeks.  We debated all morning about if we should go in the rain or not.  We finally decided to go to the museum and at least pretend that we went....because the rain and lightning was so bad that they had stopped the planes from flying.  The traffic getting on base was great since EVERYONE and their dog was trying to get off base....So when the rain stopped and they started flying again we had no troubles finding a close parking spot!!  It was cold and wet but that didn't stop the joy!  We got to see the Thunderbirds fly!  OH they were amazing!  YAY for Freedom
and an amazing Air Force!

Cousin Adventure #1 Kick Off Cousin ADventure 2012! SLEEP OVER!

  Yay For Cousin Sleep Overs!  Mary had the kids sleep over to celebrate the end of school and the kickoff to cousin adventure.  She made the "Oveson Drive In" and the kids were in heaven!  And Aunt Mary even made Matt safe pancakes!  It was the best way to kick off the summer!

So Many Things To Do To Wrap Up The School Year!!

There are so many things that come with the end of the school year.....I have just a few pictures from several so I thought I'd put them all in one post:)

#1- Math and Science Olympiad.  I love the Olympiad.  Matt was so excited to go again this year in Krypto.  He and Jess and Avery were together again!  They took first in 3rd grade when they went together. This year wasn't as great, but they still did good!  It would have helped if their judges had passed out their cards as fast as the others, BUT oh well.  They all had fun and they amaze me with how FAST they do math!

#2- TH Bell Elections.  Ty ran again and almost made it....almost.....he was sad but actually handled it well.  I think he's thinking about all of the free time he'll have now:)

#3- TH Bell Officer Induction Dinner.  This one was a little awkward since Ty had been an officer but now wasn't.....BUT again he handled it well and actually had a great time!

#4- Th Bell Awards Assembly.  I love that the Jr. High holds an awards assembly.  This year Tyler got awards for Citizenship and Grades.  He only got 1 A- the whole year.  And that A- about killed him!  Way to go TY!

#5-Kindergarten End of the Year Program. I LOVE Kindergarten and I LOVE the Kindergarten end of the year program.  Lucas was so excited and he did so well!  I love watching him sing.  He gets so into the songs:)

#6-Kindergarten End Of The Year Water Party.  I really enjoy helping out with class parties and the water party is probably my favorite. I just take all of my "stuff" and set up water games.  I LOVE it!  I'm so glad that I get to stay home with my kids and be up at the school with things like this go on! I also love that Nick Can come too!

#6-The LAST day of school!  Wahoo!  I love school but I also LOVE having my kids home.  I have loved their teachers this year and I will really miss them all.  My boys have all learned so much and grown so much that I honestly can't believe it!  I'm so glad that I live where I do and that my kids get to go to such a great school! This year Lucas Kindergarten class was letting some butterflies go.  One hadn't quite dried off so Mrs. Jones sent it home with Nick:)  NEVER has there been a happier little brother!!   I also love that on the last day the Fire Department sprays everyone down:)  It's such a great way to end they year!!
