Ethan had some extra time off last week, so we decided to take advantage of that and head to Stanley for his Dad's birthday. We left Thursday morning and got to Stanley about midday. We spent the rest of that day relaxing and just enjoying being surrounded by people we love.
Friday we loaded up our kids and headed into town to visit one of our favorite places; Explora!
go to work with Grandpa". He's been telling everyone who will listen about the adventures of that day.
While the menfolk were out working, the rest of us stayed home and enjoyed some time to sit and visit while the kids played. Marquette, Cameron, and their kids were also in Stanley that week and it was really fun to watch Sharli and Darrow play together.

May began with a whole lot of endings for us. First was the end of Erik's first year of public school. For one last grand hurrah we loaded all his schoolmates up took them on a field trip to Deming to see the circus. They had a marvelous time!
The very last day of school was a sad one for Erik. He loves school so much and has been asking ever since when he gets to go back. Here are pictures of his first day and his last day, just for fun.
Another thing that came to an end (for the summer at least) was Kid's Church. Our town is so tiny that all the kids love to get together no matter what the setting, so Erik has been attending Kid's for Christ at our local Presbyterian church. For the big end of the year party they all got to go to the McKeen's ranch north of Alma and have a great party. They had a ton of fun!
