Tanner's Tempos Concert

Tanner had another Tempos Concert. It is a 4th and 5th grader after school choir. They sang lots of fun and silly songs.

Garret the Leprechaun

Does my son look like a leprechaun or is it just me?

Tanner's Math is Cool

Tanner was in a Math competition. There were 30 schools from all over the area competing. Tanner's school won 2nd place for the team competition and Tanner won 1st place in the individual competition for his school. It was fun. They cheered on all the kids like it was a big sporting event and really made math seem cool.

Easter 2010

The Easter Bunny brought Katie some money along with a note from the Tooth Fairy apologizing for not bringing money sooner. It said that the Tooth Fairy had been sick and so had not been able to get to Katie's house to give her money for her lost tooth. So the Easter Bunny had agreed to bring it to Katie. What a lame Tooth Fairy. It had been several weeks since Katie had lost her tooth, and not just any tooth, her 1st tooth. We had a very causal Easter this year. All of my family was out of town, so it was just us. I didn't even cook an Easter dinner. The kids all needed new clothes, so they got clothes. Very boring for them, very cost effective for me.

Coloring Easter Eggs

Garret really got into coloring eggs this year. I think he could have colored all 2 dozen by himself and still wanted more.

Another year of coloring Easter Eggs. The things we do for our kids.

Spring Break Fun in Kellogg Idaho

For spring break we took the kids to stay in Kellogg Idaho. Kirt and Tanner left early Thursday morning and went snowboarding at Silver Mountain. Silver Mountain is located at the top of a very long gondola ride that originates at in the city of Kellogg Idaho. They had a fun day snowboarding (see pictures below). Then Katie and Garret and I drove over that afternoon and meet them. We stayed the night at the Morningstar Lodge and went to the waterpark. We went Thursday night and then again Friday morning. Katie loved the lazy river, Tanner the flow rider (a make shift wave, he did boggie boarding and surfing on it), Garret loved the hot tub. Poor Garret is so cold blooded. He would go down one waterslide or around the lazy river once and would be totally blue. Then we would go warm him up in the hot tub.
