Graduation Weekend

So this has taken me a while to get posted but we had an awesome weekend over Mother's Day weekend. First Ashley had her dance recital and did an amazing job. They did a tap routine to Girl's just wanna have fun and she loved it. Then the next day was graduation for Derek. As you can see my dad fell asleep (it was pretty boring) but we are all so proud of Derek for getting his Bachelor's Degree and to be moving on to the next step in his life. We all then went to Red Lobster in Lewiston for dinner and had a wonderful time together. The kids loved playing the Wii with PopPop all weekend and then going bowling on Monday with Nana and PopPop. They decided though it was much easier to do Wii bowling then the real thing. Now we are on to the next adventure of life with finding a full time job, having a baby, and moving all in the next 3 weeks.

Two Events for One Night

Tanis was involved in 2 events and they happened to get scheduled the same night so it was a very busy night for us. The first one was called the Wax Museum where all the 4th graders chose a scientist and became that person. Tanis was Roy Chapman Andrews who discovered dragon eggs and the velociraptor. They wrote a speech and had to memorize it and we would push on their hand and they would come alive and say their speech. It was a really neat night and Tanis was very excited to do it. Then we had to run over to the middle school for his orchestra concert. He has been playing the violin this year and has done very well. I am not sure that he wants to do it anymore but the exposure was really good for him. And we all know what a concert sounds like with those that are first year players. It has been fun for me though to see him develop in this talent and him making the decision to keep it up or not at the end of the school year. He truly is an amazing boy.
