Random Catching Up

fun times at Music Time (aka Cherubs). every wednesday morning there was a "mommy and me" music time at the village green club house. samantha liked singing and playing with friends there... well for the first 20 minutes or so. she usually started getting crazy at about 20 minutes into it so i'd have to drag her home!! below are pics of our last time at Cherubs.
(below) Allie with her 3 boys Jackson, Easton, and Creighton
Janel with Kambryn and Jantsen (and a bun in the oven!!!)
Angie w/Lucy and bun in the oven!! Shauna w/ Amelia and Ben
Bonnie organized all the music classes, and she did a great job. These kids with Samantha are all the birthdays that would pass in the summer when there aren't any music classes.
Allie's little "E-man"!! isn't his hair awesome?!
sami loved to "mother" kambryn. it was sweet, and kambryn was a pretty good sport about it. but sometimes i wondered if kambryn secretly hated it!!!!

this is a typical sprinkler/pool party in village green.

derek's graduation was may 15-16th (i still don't have any pictures of that yet). during that week we went to the zoo with the Goates. it was our last trip to the zoo. we had been there a million times and it was always a great place to burn a couple hours of an otherwise boring day. (i laugh every time i look at alex's sweet "gorilla pose"!!

the kids had to miss school for this zoo trip. annie's class happened to have their field trip to the zoo the same day. she decided to stay with her class... that's why she's not in any of the photos.
my 4 beautiful crazy girls! i think this was the morning of derek's hooding.
the girls sporting the new outfits grandma o. gave them when she came for derek's gradutaion.

Your girls are so adorable and growing up so fast! I would love to do a "mommy and me" class! Sounds like fun!

Your girls are so cute! One of my favorite things about living in Omaha was the zoo! It didn't matter how many times you went it was still so much fun!!

I can't believe you took a picture of me in my swimsuit...I look so scandalous! But you got some great pictures of all the kids! My kids and I miss you and your girl tons!! Kambryn will still ask about Sami. She did like being mothered by her. :)

Thanks for posting the pics. It just reminds me how much we miss you.

Love the pics!!! We were all laughing at the Village Green water park:) How is it that we lived by each other all these years and didn't have a decent shot together!?

What would be even more fun is if you and Kristina came out to Roosevelt after the race and came to the reception. Think about that one. I was totally planning on running with you too. :( Silas and I ran 2 miles in Cedar on Saturday, I was in the middle of a cold so my stats SUCKED! I think I should blame it on the altitude. So when are we going to get together? Before we know it you will be gone. Would you guys like to go boating some time?
