Photo Dump and Various Updates

I've been rotten about blogging; sorry.  I still have pictures from Hawaii I'd like to share.  Maybe someday.

Jack has done better than I expected with this whole going to school business.  He's grown and matured a lot this year.

Josiah went to volunteer orientation at SPCA recently.  I'm hoping he decides to do Dog Walker training.

Eli is a whole lot of awesome.  Sometimes it's hard to keep it all on the ground.

March was Literacy Month at school.  They had several different dress up theme days.

Katie read the most pages in the Elementary, and Hannah read second most.

We had dinner out with Zach's family recently.

Katie's teacher sent me this.  (It was stripe day, hence the PJs under her clothes.)

Sometimes, when I get to SPCA early on the days I serve at the vaccine clinic, I fold for a while.

It's a never ending task, but I know the staff appreciated those of us who lend a hand.

Volunteer appreciation breakfast at the book den.

On our last visit to Shriners, they asked us to update Hannah's x-rays.

I snapped a picture of her digital image so she could see her bones.

This was the UNO game that lasted forever.  I like playing games with the kids, but Connect 4 goes much faster.

Can't believe we're just a matter of days away from summer break!  Really looking forward to having all the kids home.  Hopefully, I'll be snapping pictures of us doing fun stuff together and feel inspired to blog more.

  1. What a lovely photo dump.
    Blessings, Dawn

    1. Thanks, Dawn! I hope you had a nice Mother's Day.

  2. Hope you have lots of fun when your kids come home. I'm finding more and more that teens are really cool people to have around. I'm transitioning from having everyone home forever to realizing how soon they'll be leaving. Ack!

    1. All 9 of mine are on the same continent (but not all in the same city, or even the same state) for about a week. Annaliese is back in California after a year in New Zealand and a couple of months in Hawaii. One of my boys is deploying soon. Our "family picture" for Mother's Day is missing 2 kids.
