Open House

Earlier this month we had an Open House at school. It was kind of stormy, and when Robin was leaving, she saw a rainbow and called Cael to come out and look...

Recognition Night

Last Tuesday night was our Recognition Night for Winter and Spring sports and activities. Allen got to give out his letters for the wrestlers. I gave out awards for the play and speech too, but Allen didn't think about taking pictures. :)

Spring Fling

Earlier this month, Arapahoe had Spring Fling (Prom for Junior High). I went to see our nieces and nephew. The girls were gorgous! They shouldn't be this old, though! Kyla's going to be in 8th grade! Rylee's going to be a Freshman! I remember her last day of Kindergarten!

Graduation article

Graduation went well. I made the mistake of watching the kids hand out flowers to their families. I got kind of teary.

My seniors!

A video on the paper website. They were practicing for graduation. I'll miss them! It's on the right side under the videos.

Mother Hen

My sister sent me these pictures from her friend Anna. I just had to share them. They're hilarious!! Yes, those are kittens... This is the caption: Okay, we have a hen that always hates for us to take her eggs. She is theonly hen we have that will sit on her eggs and not leave. When we go toget the eggs she always pecks at us, and the kids are afraid of her andwon't even try to get the eggs. Since we won't let her hatch out hereggs, she decided to adopt. These pictures are what I found this morningin the hen house. Look closely at the babies.

Spring Gardening

Yesterday we planted the flowers and garden. Cael and I were busy out front while Allen was tilling. He stopped and yelled for us to come... You must remember that here in Cairo, we don't have mice problems, we have snakes. Allen scared up this pair with the tiller. The bigger one was almost a two-footer. Cael really wanted to investigate further, but we reminded him that the snakes are cranky and we can't touch them. There was also a baby one on the other side of the garden. Cael had to have gardening gloves and tools just like Mom and Dad. He practically planted my flower barrels by himself! Planting the garden. "The seeds are in there, Mom!"
