Friday Update

Jamin is 18! He and I went to the gym.

Nolan, Zander and I worked on our Viking Lapbooks.

We picked up produce. The kids enjoyed a power play date and I enjoyed a power "mommy date". LOL

We picked up Jamin and Jared and went to Jamin's favorite Chinese restaurant. Josiah called when he got out of his last class and joined us for lunch.

Josiah and the older two boys went out to target practice with his new toy.

Mike called. Check the update at the top of the blog.

The older boys called us and we met them at the lake. Photos below. We didn't have gifts or a party today for Jamin. We'll do that when Mike is home. The day was practically perfect. It was a treat to sit and visit with Josiah....always good to get the insight of adult children while you still have children at home to benefit from that input. LOL

We came home and watched El Dorado and Hogan's Heroes.

Photos (tried to limit it to one per subject...I do like the quality of the D70 photos....and I've taken to carrying a back pack so it is a purse camera. ::snort::)

Peaceful Play Structure


The gang hatches a plan.....

Tag - you're IT








Stacia was clueless most of the game...but she had a blast! It was fun to watch everyone include her in the wild game.

My kids "discovered" Hogan's Heroes this year and they love it. So funny! Beautiful here to day but cold...brrr... 19 as I write so probably not much outside.

I love love love seeing pics of your older set playing with the younger ones! Not too old to play a rousing game of tag! The youngers will cherish these pictures and memories...and I believe the olders will too.

Looks like a lot of fun! But just seeing the kids in t-shirts and shorts is making me shiver. I think it's 36 here...

Great picture memories - especially that last one of Stacia. :0)

It's cold here today, too, Julie. Honest.

LOVE that photo of Stacia!!!

This post brings back memories of college when they had those wooden playgrounds everywhere. We used to play tag on them. One rule - you couldn't touch the ground or you were out. ;-)

Looks like everyone had a great time.

Lisa, we did the same thing - same rules. I wonder if they still do that at EBC - guess I'll have the 3 who attend there check for me. ::snort::

Honestly, my water broke with our first child, BreAnne in the middle of one of these tag games. I came down the slide, hit the bottom, and went "oh, oh". LOL
