Jed is halfway done.

Jed is halfway through the academy. YAY!!! If you didn't know, he is going to the police academy on the weekends to be a reserve police officer. This has always been a dream of his and now that he is out of the Army National Guard he has decided to fulfill his dream. He will graduate in June. Here are a few pictures of what he has been doing for last few months:

Run for Hunger

Jed did a 5K run with his police academy buddies on Thanksgiving day to raise money to feed the hungry. I think I will do it next year with him. It seemed like a lot of fun even though it was wet and cold.

We've been so busy with life that I have not been on my blog in a while. Here are a few things that have happened in the last couple of months.

A friend was trimming their tree and the kids decided to play Indians in their backyard. They were out there for hours and had a fun time.

I saw the midnight showing of Twilight with some friends. We had a great time and loved the movie.

Halloween with Jared and Evan. Chris and Zack didn't want to dress up.

Adult Halloween Party...we had a wonderful time and look forward to it next year.

Jared was in a challenge against all the 4th grade classes for fire safety called Fire Feud.
His class won first place.

Evan's Birthday

We can't believe our baby is 7 yrs old. Where does the time go?

The kids get to pick their favorite place to eat for their birthday. Evan loves Big Bubba's Bad BBQ.

Evan riding the bull...he loves it.

Jared's trip to the dentist

Jared has been having teeth pulled to prepare him for braces. Poor guy has Jeds mouth and needed six teeth pulled...two baby teeth and four permanent teeth. We are finally done with the last three. Now he has to wait until all his teeth are in and he will get braces.

Dr. Phil Trip

On the way to the Dr. Phil show

Meggin and I
Raquel and Heather
Ruth and Priscilla

When the first show was over we were on a bus to Hollywood for lunch and shopping. It was a lot of fun. When we got back we were told we had to put on Dr. Phil t-shirts for the second show outside. If we knew that the second show was outside we would of brought better shoes and a change clothes. T-shirts and dressy clothes look so good together...LOL

Waiting for the teams to finish their race at the finish line.

Still waiting...

After a long day... ready to go back home.

I had a great time and would do it again. The shows air in September.

First day of school

When Chris started school many years ago we started a tradition to go to Denny's for breakfast on the first day of school. I think this is the only day the kids are easy to get up in the morning. :o)

When I was a kid my Mom had a tradition to take our picture in front of the house and of course we do this one too. :o)

Jared and Evan at school.

Jed started school too. He is going to be a reservist next year for VPD. This is something he has always wanted to do and now he has the time to do it since he's out of the National Guard.

I've fallen victim to the madness...Twilight.
I haven't read in years and loved all the books.
