Thankgiving 2010

Boy do I love these kids! I am so Thankful for them.  I am Thankful that I get to stay home with them and that we get to live so close to my family.  Life is good and I am so Thankful!  Have a great day.

Just a few pictures from our skedaddle at Oceanview Park.  Duke had more fun climbing this tree house structure than he did at the playground I think.  Nah, you should have heard him shriek with delight at the zipline.

The day started out a bit rough with Duke laying in the grass for about 20 minutes at Forest School.  He came round as we left and was in a cheerful mood the rest of the day.
 Some lunch at road runner with Kory helped quite a bit.

He came home and did the craft from school - making a stick star. 
The boys ended the day with a spikey hair contest.  The judges concluded it was a draw.

Weekend Review

 Friday at our group there were some moose listening to me teach about scales and balances.

 Kory taught Kin how to cross stitch.

 We went geocaching - saw this lovely star and Pepper climbed a tree.
I had some help climbing a tree.
 And got to the top (there was a geocache up there, about 30 feet)

It was fun!

 I was finding a picture for #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) and found these two gems!
 This is a yearly quiz I give the boys.  The answers always crack me up!
 These next two pictures were from our dog walk at the lake (Bop was painting Habitat for Humanity houses).
 Still snowless, but the ice looks really neat as it has frozen and melted and cracked.

Duke's Birthday

 Duke requested to hide a geocache for his birthday.  He picked out the container and hid it himself.  It is over his left shoulder - it might never be found.
It is a log container in the middle of that picture.  Craziness.

 We celebrated with friends on a bridge after hiding the cache and before finding one ourselves.  It was fine weather and then it opened up and started pouring rain.  We were all drenched, but got back to our cars easily enough. 

 I asked him to pose for his 5th birthday picture.  Loved his pose.
We zipped home to warm up and play with some friends.  I zipped off to get some Moose's Tooth pizza and then some cake.  He wanted - cake/ice cream/cake with no frosting.  So, he got it and then proceeded to eat only the ice cream out of the middle.  Silly boy, I do love you.

Happy Duke Day!

A big happy birthday to Duke!  He is 5 years old today! 

This was yesterday morning.  They so wanted to get up to see Kory before she left for work.  They were a little bit tired as you can see.  Silly boys.
