Last Day of School Party...

School was over last Thursday and we had a playground picnic! We had chicken salad sandwiches, chips, carrots, cookies and pop. It was so good!

These are all pictures taken during our party.

This is us girls eating on our big black tube.

The boys ate in the playhouse.

Here is Garret recycling the cups as shovels after we got done eating. He played with them for days! It's so good to be done with school and start enjoying summer!

Science Class With Dad....

Hi Everyone!!! I haven't been on here for a looong time. It's probably because we have a busy family. Well, on Blayne's birthday Dad had a science class. He has been wanting to do this for a long time. And on Saturday he had to work so on Monday (Blayne's bday) he got it off. Blayne thought it was pretty cool! Well, he set it up with the little kids so it could be a surprise for us bigger kids. This is us starting to see what he set up! By the why Chauntel walked down with us but she went back up because she was not feeling good at all. So you won't see her in these pics.

All the stuff was set up in a straight line! This is some of the stuff. He had around 11 different things.

This is us kids and Dad. He talked about each plant and tree. He wanted to do this so we could identify the plants and trees that grow around here.

In this picture it shows a better pic of him explaining them.

Here he is still talking about them.

Then we went in the woods and took a walk. Dad would point out different plants and trees and we would try to tell him what they were.

After we took our walk we all took a test. I thought I would get stuff wrong...but I got everything right. Mom said, "So it looks like you learned something today." After everyone took their test we went home. It was really fun!!!

I hope you have a good day because I am having a good day! It was pretty cool when I woke up and heard I could do blogging. Chauntel and Blayne might post too, so watch for them.

I'm Back....With News:)

I've been so bad at posting lately....once again! And even bad at letting Alexa do it. Thought we'd take the time to post a few things today:)

One night James was out mowing the edges of the lawn before handing the mower over to the kids. Someone came and told me to look at the back lawn and see what Daddy had done for me. I went and checked it out....and found this heart for me:) Ahhhh....what a cutie:)

On another note...(not an intentional play on words:), we decided to break our good news to the kids on Blayne's birthday. We wrote a note and put it into a gift bag to be opened with his the last one. Here is what it said and what he read aloud...

Boy did this news raise the roof:) The kids were so very excited! I know that advocates of birth control like to argue that kids from big families, like ours, suffer because they don't get enough attention. But if this next picture is any indication....I really don't think it's the case! They don't look worried:) They actually get so much more attention from not only their parents...but from happy brothers and sisters!

Later, one of the kids asked Blayne what his best gift was. He right away said that this one was his best gift, by far! I thought that was pretty sweet! Especially considering that he got his first racetrack that he has been wanting all of his life! Gotta love the kids:) They're so special!

We Have a New Chicken Chaser....

We have a new chicken chaser.... his name is Jared. One day mom was painting Chauntel and my chair. Mom wanted me to see what Jared was doing! This is what he was doing. And of course I had to go and get the camera.

I think the chicken got kind of scared. Jared might of got a little sad because he couldn't catch it!!!

This isn't just about Jared and the chickens. I thought I would post some pics of National Teacher Day. Us kids knew it was that special day and wanted to do something. Us kids didn't know what to eat for lunch. One of us said Pizza. Us Big Kids counted up our money and we had enough. We got Pop money too.....and of course we couldn't drive so mom went with some of the kids to get it. Blayne, Camille, Jared, and I stayed home. Jared got fed and went to bed. And pretty much after that, Mom said she was on her way home. We had wanted to fancy the table a bit; so I called Blayne up and boy did we go fast. When we were done doing what we could do, Mom was home. This is a picture I took. Just one more thing..... us kids were pretty pumped that we were REALLY BUYING PIZZA!!!

~Mom at her pizza party~ And this is her favorite pizza from Papa Murpheys!

This was our sign I real quickly typed!!!

Hope you liked my post. Alexa
