Asher's had a very busy month! He enjoyed a field trip to Bisbee, AZ and he threw shot put and discus in Track & Field. (isn't he cute on Easter morning!)
The 7th & 8th graders went on this Bisbee trip. They were busy all day, but still made time to shop. None of my kids are able to find their name on personalized items. So when you can't find your name, and the "blank" ones are gone.....you pick BRIAN! That's my boy! Great souvenir, Ash!
Gotta love teenage boys....who never want their photo taken! Someone brought cupcakes to this track meet to celebrate one of the coaches birthday. Asher loved that it was a prop to insure hiding from the camera.
I believe this next track meet was at Payne Jr. High. Go, Ash!
It's quite a drive, but beautiful scenery.
I'm setting a goal to have a new camera next year. I really want to get some great close up photos. For now, the point and shoot will have to do. I love that he enjoyed track and is already training for next season!
Tony and I are so proud of him!
With the track season ended, Asher's gone back to devoting more time to his favorite hobby - antagonizing his brother! (don't fool yourself, Kyler enjoys the hobby himself! They could both win Olympic gold for bugging, teasing & irritating their brother!) They're now back to sharing a room.....HEAVEN HELP US!
Of course I didn't get a picture of the final product, but this is very close. I teach nursery at church and one of the other workers, Bernice volunteered these dishcloths for our Mother's day craft. She suggested we put their name and handprint on the dishtowel. Cute idea, huh. I gathered some foam stamps and red acrylic paint and came up with this. They are really TOO ADORABLE!
Then in the space on the left of the name, we put one of their handprints. We did the craft at the beginning of our two hours together and they were dry and ready to go home with them when church was out. Thanks for the great idea and the dishtowels, Bernice!
And finally, as I was driving around running errands for our big Baptism/Eagle Court of Honor weekend, I drove past a Whataburger. My grandpa ate at Whataburger for lunch EVERYDAY for decades!!! When they saw his truck pull up, they would start to make his burger. There's even a Whataburger across from the ball fields in Prescott, where grandpa used to Umpire for a church softball tournament every summer. I can remember going with him some years and enjoying a hamburger with him. (or running and getting it for him while he worked!) So as I drove past this restaurant, I had to stop and have lunch. I miss him so much!
Which brings me to my final thought:
FAMILY IS THE BEST!!!!
(even when they
antagonize, fight, irritate, tease each other) It's a good thing I love them so much!!!!
