An Overdue Sprinkling!

Ok... so thank you all for your patient hounding. Yes, we are very very very very very (very into infinity) overdue on posting. I won't bore you with excuses... just post. I had all these really cool pics to post from the additions to our family... but couldn't find my flashdrive... get to the library, sit down, look in this one part of my purse and vwala... there's the flash drive. So I'm not sure what all is on there, so what you get today is a very random sprinkling of our life since... well, I'm not sure when. Enjoy!!
Chris and I took care of Dad's delivery business when he was gone in March. (Yes, I drove it!!)

What do you think... is this shirt green?!
This is the new and inovative way to keep close tabs on rowdy kids!

Wow, this is really digging back in the archives! We have about this much rain at the moment!!

The Last Smiles From Camp

So here's the rest of the pictures from our time at TeenPact. We learned so much, not only about the legislative process, but also we grew in our relationship with the Lord! We made lots of new friends and are already looking forward to next year!! You all should plan to join us!

So we ate lunch on our way to the camp at Taco Johns. When Tiff left her chair, this screw fell out of it. Uh-oh!

Guess what's happening at our house?!
Though the rains are falling and the sun peaks out occasionally, we are hanging on to the hope that spring is just around the corner... and here's a little proof!

Better Late Than Never... I Think.

Here are another group of pictures from TeenPact. We have about double this many or more to post, but time constraints keep me. Keep watching and enjoy these!
(A big prize to whoever gets the theme of this grouping of pictures!!)

The Governor's Speech at graduation. With his body guards.

The governor with all his body guards. (Don't you love the shades?! They were worn all day long... yes, even inside.)
This is the FOILMNOPQZTRQVWXYZ - or something - committee that I was apart of with Mikaela and Chris.
Yup, this is me with the Governor!!
A group of us walked through the tunnels that went from the Capitol to another building on the other side of the street. We walked over a mile and a half underground, under-road, etc.

The lovely ceiling in our conference room in the Capitol where the speech class was held.

Doesn't she look so stuffy... I mean studious?!

Governor Johnson with his mean looking body guards. (Are you seeing a pattern here?)

Tiffany getting the privilege of shaking the Iowa TeenPact governor, John Johnson.

Chairman Felix Knutson and Clerk Tiffany of Committee EEC... and John Freed... and Josh Meyers. (What you won't do to get airtime!)

Chris with the program director, Jonathan Morris.

The people who put the camp together!

The staff girls... and Fuzz. Yay for Fuzz!

An more serious picture of the staff guys, with our beautiful state capitol in the background!!
