I made Austin take a few pics with his crazy brother.


I have no words


I can’t believe this was his last High School dance


This year Austin decided to go with his runner friends so we followed he and Taylor over to get pictures done


It was raining on and off and muggy. Same as last year!


Austin and Taylor looked amazing


Austin forgot his prom tickets so Blake ran them over and they had to stay for pics


Love these two


Hannah - Those are classic. Typical siblings. If you tried to take a picture of me and one of my brothers, you’d get the same thing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it.

They are a cute couple!

Track – OCC

It was another cold rainy May day. And prom again.


At least this year Austin ran early-ish. It wasn’t the fly out of there for the 15 minute shower to get to prom pictures…


Austin’s post race pace. Headphones on- I need to ask him what he listens to pre-race


It was so awesome to see our guys take the lead of the pack from the start. They were running the 2 mile race. 8 laps around the track.


I love it- Austin checking out the guy who was creeping up on him but ended up behind him ๐Ÿ™‚


He fought hard in this race


And ended up taking 3rd overall and advancing to districts.


It’s funny that in other sports to punish you they make you run. It’s not easy people. I can’t do it.


And I’m pretty much sure you always feel like you are dying.


But to say that I have enjoyed watching his running career is a big understatement.


So proud of this kid- words can’t even describe it.

The next step

I’m not going to lie.  This month has been a big roller coaster of highs and lows and trying to wrap my brain around how we got to this point (so fast) and how we navigate from here.  Family trips are no longer the easy pick a date trips- it’s how can we coordinate schedules and fit it all in- even for just a week.  But on the flip side I am so freaking excited for what this kid does with his life.  He got into the honors program at Ohio State and I could not be more proud.  He has worked so hard to make this happen.  It’s hard to see the first one fly the coop but I could not be more proud!!

Susan - Extra glad he’s not far from home. I bet you will see him more than you think!

Super Games

The best day of the school year!


This year is Cole’s last year in elementary school and his last Super Games!


He wasn’t feeling 100%- seems someone always gets sick. He had a great time anyway.



I can’t believe he will be in middle school next year


This was Eva’s first official Super Games


At this point of the day the 6th graders were getting a bit obnoxious and rowdy


It happens every year.


It was a little chilly for the waterslide but the kids don’t care.


Today is Austin’s last day of High School. Unbelievable! The rest of the kids have one more week. I am ready for summer!!

End of the year

I can’t believe how quick this school year went.  Tomorrow is Super Games and like clockwork I have two kids not feeling so hot.  So it’s early bedtimes and lots of rest so they can have fun tomorrow.

Fortunately after a week of rain tomorrow is looking dry.  

Blake is away being a counselor at 6th grade camp again.  I miss him but got this pic today

Here is hoping Sumer is around the corner.  I am so ready for long nights spent outside!
