Kiwanis Pancake Feed ~ February 5, 2012

Our bi-annual tradition, The Kiwanis Pancake feed.

Birthday, Birthday, BIRTHDAY


March is our big month of birthdays! Thomas turned SIX, I can't even believe it! Time has flown by way too fast. My little baby is now a big, independent Kindergartner. Ashton turned a DECADE, the big ten. Ten years ago he made me a mom, and I have loved every minute of it.

Bowling for the Blind ~ March 2012


The boys participated in The Lion's Club: Bowling for the Blind. They wanted to bowl without the guards and did very well. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the boys were at bowling. While they did not receive a trophy for their scores, they did raise a nice sum of money to assist the Lion's Club. Until next year, I definitely plan on taking them bowling more often.

Ashton's Basketball Season

Ashton had such a great basketball season. We were really proud of how hard he worked! He became more comfortable on the floor, took chances with making baskets, and played a remarkable defender.

O.L.L. Talent Show


Thomas and his kindergarten class presented a reader's theater of Jan Brett's The Mitten. Thomas was the little boy who was responsible for the mitten Grandma knitted. They did such a nice job! Jack and his friend Ross were Aliens Who Made a PB & J sandwich. Ashton and his friend Dylan made oragami art. Jack and Ashton also ended the show with piano solos.
