How many monkeys swing in the trees?

The answer is TWO according to KaileeJo. This is her favorite song. She learned it in nursery and loves to sing it. Oh and a little fact, this is our 100th post. :)

This is a mothers day video that was recorded on fathers day so look for the fathers day video sometime in September. Happy Mothers Day!

We have recently had Grandpa Ostler come and visit for a few days. It was nice to have him here and the girls really enjoyed it. KaileeJo's favorite thing is to ride in Papa's truck. She gets really excited anytime we went to go anywhere and asked if she could ride in his truck and was sometimes very disappointed when we had to ride in our car. Taydom also became quite the Papa's girl. She loved to snuggle to sleep with him, and often choose him over mom.

The same day that he left to go home (like an hour later) Aunt Lizzy came for a surprise visit. The girls were thrilled to see her. She got to stay for a few days and had a lot of fun with the girls.

Last Days Of School

KaileeJo has really been enjoying coloring outside. She is getting very creative with her drawings but her favorite thing to draw is circles. She will tell me that she is writing my name or tell me that it says happy mothers day.

These next few pics are from a BBQ that we had at our house for the kids in Adam's 5th grade class. KaileeJo really enjoyed having them over and her favorite part was roasting marshmallows.

His students really liked the rope swing and playing football and basketball with Mr. F

A group shot of all the kids and parents that came for the event. In this picture it looks like they are doing the famous "Shark Bait" "OOh Ha Ha" that Adam uses in his class as an attention getter.

This is the next to last day of school. As one of the rewards for the kids doing so well on their tests they earned going to the park for a fun day. They played baseball and football and had a great time.

This is a class photo from the park.

It is great for me when they have these activities because his students love KaileeJo and Taydom and take them from me and watch them. The girls just love Adam's students.

This is the last day of school. They had what they called a "pig out" with a lot of different foods brought in and the kids just ate and ate.

Taydom enjoyed the pig out to the fullest.

Another reward for doing good on their standard testing Adam let them put "pies" in his face. It was just whipped cream on a paper plate but the kids still really enjoyed it.

The after. It was such a mess but I'm sure it will be something that the kids will look back at for years to come. We all had such a good time with Adam's class this year. It is great that he works in a place where the kids and I feel welcome to come in and visit and participate in some of the fun activities.
