"I just could not breathe!"




Tyler was quite a little dare devil this year at Silverwood - all he could talk about was wanting to ride the Panic Plunge. The pictures are great of his face right after the "drop". I asked him if he was scared and he said, "No - I just could not breathe!" I am proud of you Tyler for trying it out.

Bumper boats


SILVERWOOD




It would not be summer without our annual trip to Silverwood. It is so much fun and the boys look forward to it each year. This year both Tyler and Nathan rode the rollercoasters. Tyler did the panic plunge - which in his words, "was not scary - I just could not breathe! :) I was suprised at how much Nathan absolutely loved going on all the rollercoasters. Billy was in heaven just knowing that both Tyler and Nathan LOVE rollercoasters. We never even made it to the water park - we stayed in the amusement park the WHOLE day from open to close. It was a great day.

Missing tooth


Well, the tooth fairy is now familiar with our house. On Saturday June 21, 2008 Tyler lost his 1st tooth. It was very exciting. We were camping and glad that we did not loose it in the dirt. The tooth fairy gave him 4 quarters and a one dollar bill. He now wants to save all his teeth and give them to the tooth fairy all at once - so he can get more money at one time :)

It's official Tyler has Graduated from Kindergarten


Doesn't he look so cute!!

Tyler's last day of Kindergarten


Tyler had a fabulous year at Hellgate Elementary School. His teacher was Mrs. O'Conner and she was a perfect fit for Tyler. She helped him learn to read, do math and enjoy going to school. He made some wonderful friends in his class. Tyler alway said that Mrs. O was teaching them "1st grade stuff." He loved going to school.

Nathan's last day of school


Nathan attended preschool at 1st Luthern Church and his teacher was Mrs. Stiff. He absolutley loved going to school and especially being the "super star". That was the day that he would bring treats/snack, show and tell and be the most important "line leader."

Learning the HARD way!


Well Ryan really learned his lesson on how to properly go down stairs. His poor face took a beating at the expense of learning. We did not realize that the slider door was left open. So much for cute 1 year old pictures - they will have to be post-poned.
