Had a ton of fun with the capes the kids got at Magic Mountain and the trampoline. See more Soaring pics here.
I'm Behind, I know
I've had a little issue with discipline in posting my pictures this year. It never helps that my computer chooses when I wants to let me post stuff to the blog and when it just wants to sit and "think about it" for minutes on end.
I'm working on it and really am taking photos this year. I appreciate that you stopped by for a visit even though my photos are behind and now apparently dated incorrectly on these most recent ones. I'll have to work on correcting that...

The kids got to visit Pismo Beach this year courtesy of a set of grandparents. They went sans parents, so this pic was sent via cell phone for our viewing pleasure. Apparently this awesome cut out adorns the beach so when you can't get wet cuz' it's too late, take a fun picture instead!

One of his best friends since preschool was in a performance of Don Quixote and we got to watch him. Pictures were not allowed during the show, so I had to settle for this quick pic afterwards.

Cell phone pic, not the greatest BUT we couldn't let the moment slip away...
We do not have cable or any form of televised tv at our house (yes, we have a tv, but use it for movies and games only), so when the Spurs are playing the Heat in the NBA finals and the games are really, really good we just can't miss out on all of them. So out to eat we went, to a place where we could watch most of it.
Three out of four of us were very entertained and the one that wasn't chose to entertain herself, LOL...
At the end of the night, the Spurs had thoroughly spanked the Heat on their own home court, winning game four of the NBA finals.

Last day of school of the 2013 - 2014 school year. Both kids performed in the band playing "Pomp & Circumstance" for the kindergarten graduation. Awards later in the day revealed that she pulled in a nice Math & Bible medal as well as a Honor Roll certificate.

It's odd because, when her brother was in the fifth grade he had to do a few posters to present to the class, but now that she's about to finish the fifth grade, it wasn't required of them. Still a few of the kids decided that they wanted the experience. Guess who was one of those few?
Normally with the posters we go all out. Stencils, scrapbooking paper, markers, etc. but because this one is last minute, as in almost last day of school last minute, she just winged it. BUT she had fun!

The kids' school band performed on a Sunday morning at church! This is a privilege that they work hard for each year. He is on the top row, right side, playing the trumpet. She is on the front row in the middle playing the clarinet.

There's this end of the school year tradition that Yohn has with his Jr. High chapel. It's called Chubby Bunny. The kids have to stick large marshmallows in their mouths and say "chubby bunny" after each one they put in. If they can be understood, they go on to the next round.
Some of the kids enjoy it and some, well... some just think it's gross!

If you look carefully you can see them both. She is on her DS with her headphones on the left and he is on his DS on the right. They have camped out in the yard every night since last weekend when we put the tent up to back yard camp as a family. I hear there are plans to continue to camp for as long as they are allowed.
Oh the stuff memories are made of!

Took a trip to a semi-local park (it's about a 30 minute drive) to have a picnic. Well, we didn't find the "perfect spot" and ended up dragging our cooler about halfway around the reservoir before finally stopping to eat. But it was still a lot of fun. Too bad it's forbidden to play in the water though, cuz' it was a warm day!

After failing to reserve our spot on our favorite mountain, I decided to set up the tent for the kids in the back yard. Yohn wasn't sure about sleeping out there with us but the kiddos can be pretty convincing. It was a fun night that we all thoroughly enjoyed and I imagine will be remembered by two kids for years to come.

A little bit of friend time this Memorial Day Weekend spent at our city's annual Kidfest. I wondering how many more years they will want to attend this yearly event until they feel too big to do it anymore.
The kids had a blast in the sports section and fell in love with puppies of all kinds in the vendors section (adoptable puppies from the county). Two of the kids even won Hermit crabs! Not mine thankfully, we have enough pets right now.
It was a hot day, it was a fun day it was an exhausting day. Bring it on again next year!

Admittedly this photo was not taken today, as I cannot seem to locate the photo that was taken today. Was it accidentally deleted? I hope not, but I am beginning to wonder if maybe I forgot to get a pic this day.
As you can see, she was having a bit of fun in the bathroom mirror, instead of brushing her teeth!

This crazy rooster! Remember when I said he had returned? Yeah... Pluses and minuses to his return, that's for sure.
That's him on our fence, crowing at 5:30 in the am. He had been crowing since before the sun was even up too. And boy he sounded close. No wonder! He was right on our fence!
Yohn wasn't thinking and at 5:30 let the dog outside. Koda, our German Shepherd would love to have this bird for a snack so I shot out of bed to ask him if he had checked to see if the rooster was in our yard before letting the dog out. He wasn't, thankfully, but was on our fence and we were fortunate that Koda was merely getting a drink, oblivious as it were, to the noisy alarm clock. After
photographing chasing him down we let the dogs back outside.
Later that day, while Yohn was locking up the campus long around 9:30 pm, he noticed something funny on one of the chairs in our multi use room. At first he was thinking it might be a jacket, but decided to investigate further when it moved and found that the crazy animal was all cozied in for the night on the seat of a comfy chair. Apparently he snuck in earlier in the day and no one noticed he was there and locked him inside. I'm sure he was enjoying his accomodations when Yohn rudely placed him outside.
UPDATE: Sadly the adventures of Cornelius the Rooster may have come to an end as he has disappeared once again and who knows if he is gone for good this time or not.

Using the trampoline as a stage, the kids put on a little show for us while we ate dinner this evening. They planned it for a few hours and even had a program to go with it!
The lighting was awful but the black and white is still fun!

Spend most of the day filling in the bubbles on the test cover sheets and then fixing the students bubbles so they were completely filled in with no white showing and no marks outside. The callous on my finger got a definite workout today.

Last day of track practice and after Elisha running 3 miles and Bethany putting in another 2 1/2 they got to play a game. It's a cell phone photo, so I know the action's kinda hard to see, but I loved that their coach got right in there and played with them. Coach Jay is on the right in the blue shirt, Elisha and Bethany both appear to be streaking across the middle.
