Ashton's Labels

Knives, forks and sores?

Water and goldfish

If you're new to our kitchen and aren't sure where things are, Ashton has made sure that you'll find your way around real quick!  We found these great little labels on EVERYTHING a few nights ago.  This guy loves post-its and had a lot of fun figuring out how to spell stuff!

We're thankful for Derrik

Celebrating Derrik at lunch on Father's Day!

The exploded tire
 We had a scare a week ago when the tire on the van blew while Derrik was filling it with air.  The impact blew him backwards, scratched up his face, broke his glasses and caused ringing in his ears.  Everything has returned to normal except his left ear  (the one closest to the blast).  He will visit a specialist this week to determine the extent of the damage.  Today, we as a family stop and count our blessings that he is okay.  We love you, Daddy!

This is what I saw when I came to get scary.

The straight pin that was in his shirt - bent at a 90 degree angle after the blast.

Spring Dance at SCE

Cameron and Ashton finished out their school year this week and performed in the annual Spring dance.  Cameron's grade did a square dance and Ashton's grade did the hokey-pokey.  Lots of fun to watch!

Magic Mountain - Yippee!

We went to Cameron's classroom open house to see all that he's been up to this semester.  I held an open house in my classroom as well that same night!  Here are some highlights:
