Havin' fun on the bumper cars with my girl at the county fair!
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...

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.
