Marathon runners

The kids participated in a marathon back in April, they had to run 25 miles prior to the event and then they ran/walked the last 1.2 miles at the race and they got super cool medals!

Ezra has run over 150 miles in their school mileage club, Tobin over 50 and Marian just the 26.2 because her school doesn’t have the club.

Very proud of them:)


Another family fun day

Kelly & I wanted to go to the zoo, the kids never seem to want to go anymore but always have fun when we get there, so we went miniature golfing first (for Ezra). It was really cold and we were the only ones playing, they probably thought we were pretty weird.

As I was trying to correct Tobin’s form, he whacks at it and gets a hole in one, I guess he doesn’t need instruction;)


Marian & I both got hole in ones on this one . . .


And, I observed a most peculiar thing . . . Mari was hitting from both sides of the ball, when I asked her about it, she says “I don’t know, what difference does it make”, we have funny kids!

The kids took a lot of pictures but I don’t have time to sort through them for the blog, they want to make a Zoo book with their pictures.130420_FamilyFunDay_168 130420_FamilyFunDay_192

When taking this picture of the rhino inside, Ezra asked if I could get rid of the bars out of the shot, (as in Photoshop), made me chuckle and while I think I might be able to it would take a LONG time, so when I’m 80 and don’t have anything else to do, maybe I’ll try.

These are some of their shots . . .

The kids had their final AWANA night party, and it was Marian’s final AWANA ever, they even had the 5th graders go hang out with the “youth group” for a bit to see what it’s like-not sure I’m ready for that!


We did this fun game where groups took turns taking their sick friend to be healed by Jesus (on a scooter), the adults had a team too.  This is one of the kids favorite gym activities, very fun:)
