Dave just e mailed me this picture of him at work. Actually it is his lunch time, so I guess he can snooze if he wants to. He is tired after all the driving that he did getting us to and from Idaho this past week. I am glad that he gets a well deserved rest. He gets so tired. Too bad he can't take naps every day like all of my daycare children do. Isn't he cute?

Sasha went to her first Church dance tonight. She went with some friends from Church. We volunteered to do the driving since it was Sasha's first time. It was fun picking up the kids and taking them to the dance. We picked up Kellyn Bennett, Jonah and Austin Hjelm. It was Jonah's birthday today so it was special for him to go on his actual birthday.

Today was Jayson's last full day of school. All of the 5th graders at his school walked from Lake Louise Elementary to Steilacoom Park. They took the shortcut by Pierce College. When all the students arrived at the park, there were already BBQ's cooking up a storm. They ate hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, baked beans, and pop. It was a lot of fun. I was able to go to the park too for almost an hour. Right before I left, I took this picture of Jayson getting ready to swing. The sun was blinding his eyes...so that is why he looks all squinty.

Mercy and Daisy have got to be two of the laziest dogs on the planet. Every time I find them, they are snoozing, sleeping, resting, napping, and checking their eyelids for holes. It is so cute that they love to snuggle with each other. Generally where one is, the other one will be too. Anyway... I thought that you might like to see them in their "natural" state.

Jayson and Sasha at Northwest Trek in front of the Barn Owl Exhibit. Aren't they super cute together?
Thursday was a terrific day because we all either skipped school or skipped work. We all took a "Mental Health Day". Since Heather and her hubby Mike and son we in town from Texas, we decided to take family pictures. We went to the Picture People at the Tacoma Mall. For some strange reason, all of the pictures actually turned out great. Kids always look awesome...throw the adults in there too and that is a whole other story. We ended up buying a few of the pictures and the CD of the session so that we could make copies as we needed them. After we were done with the picture, Red Robin was calling our names for lunch. We all ate our favorite burgers and then after than, headed out to Northwest Trek. This is a fabulous wildlife preserve that has an hour long tram ride. We saw bison, elk, deer, canadian geese, wolverines, beavers, eagles, and other animals that I cannot remember. It was a great day to be with family.
The end of elementary school brings the end of many fun things. Jayson was selected at the beginning of the year to be in the Safety Patrol. Every few weeks, he gets to go to school early and stay late so that he can help his fellow school mates cross the street safely. Yesterday, he was rewarded for all of his hard work. He and his fellow safety patrol folks were taken to Wild Waves. For those of you who don't live around here, it is a water park/amusement park. It is a lot of fun. Jayson spent all day there. Here is a picture of Jayson doing his job at school. Isn't he handsome?
