FHE Fishing for...

So tonight after Jeremy got home from work, we had a picnic at the park and went fishing at the little pond there. Well, we didn't catch any fish but here are a couple pictures of what Jeremy did catch with his pole. The kids loved the turtles, and one turtle, after an hour of being lugged around by Skyler, decided he LOVED Skyler too, so much that he took a small piece of his belly with him back to the pond. Skyler was screaming so loud because the turtle had his little jaw locked on his belly. Once we got the turtle off the belly Skyler was ready to let him go. Skyler's belly pict doesn't do his wound justice, it is sad, we keep telling Skyler to "embrace the bite," I mean seriously, how many people can say they have had a turtle bite their belly???? It was a great night!

Skyler's Review of The Giving Tree~

This paper makes me so happy to read. I just got it back from school. He wrote it in November, but his teacher wanted to keep it for a while. She said it brought her to tears, just how grown up it sounded. He wrote this all on his own! As you can see, Skyler was blessed with mine and Jeremy's "lovely" handwriting skills, poor kiddo! I typed the content below since it is hard to read on the computer.

"The Giving Tree a ficticious story by Shel Silverstein is a fabulous book about a lifelong relationship between a needy, greedy, selfish boy and an unselfish tree. This story takes place outside in a forest. The events unfold from the boys life beginning at boyhood moving all the way to his senior years.

This story has a wonderful moral with a great lesson to be learned. I honestly cherished this story because it makes you think about the different stages of life, and what the years may bring to a person. When I read this story it reminded me of the pilgrims, They had to pay heavy taxes to the King. I recomend this book to anyone who likes to read about friendship.
P.S. It also reminded me of my mom" By Skyler Devey

As I mentioned in the last post, we went bowling on Kenzie's birthday, so here are a few picts from the night. Jeremy, being the great dad he is, went because it was her birthday, but he had to really try not to fall over with dizziness and stuff, poor guy, he has been really sick. So here is Kenzie's first bowling trip ever, Skyler went once before with cubscouts.

A few days late...

I have been so busy lately with school, work, Jeremy's health, and a million other things that I have not posted for my sweet little girls 6th birthday. Yes you read that right my baby is now six years old. I can't believe it, where have these years gone!!!!!!!! She had a great birthday, I made her cinnamon rolls for breakfast and then the kids went to school. Her teacher gave her a birthday crown and a pencil, she was excited. I brought her two balloons when I picked her up and she was so excited, then she gave one of the balloons to her friend so she would feel happy too. We met my friend Shelly Harris and her kiddos, Angela Titensor and her kiddos, Aunt Angie and her kids, and Grandma Devey, at the Yuma Wetlands park(the coolest park ever!) We had cupcakes, juice and a had a pinata, mainly the kids just played and us girls visited. After the party, our family went bowling. I was completely shocked by how freakin expensive it was. I haven't been since high school. It cost almost $50. for one game and shoes. So as much as the kids enjoyed it, we won't be doing that again. All in all it was a great day,a long day, but a good one. I tried to talk Kenzie into letting us celebrate this weekend, but she said that would be embarrassing because it wouldn't really be her birthday. Kenzie didn't want her day to end. I remember feeling that way when I was a kid. Anyways, Happy Birthday my beautiful little girl, I hope you know how much you mean to our family, WE LOVE YOU!
