We were invited on a boat ride upriver with our neighbors. I took lots of photos! I want to share them with you!

Can you see the temperature!!!! 83.1 degrees at 4:22 p.m. This was in the shade! WOW!
This was our AWANA group for 2009-2010. We had a great year and the kids did so great! In the last 10 weeks they finished 283 sections!
Aerin finished her fourth T & T book this year and got a trophy, the Timothy Award. She is the only kid in Nenana AWANA that has ever earned this award.

We love AWANA!

Bill was the commencement speaker at Alaska Bible College this year. This was the last class that would remember him as a student. Graduation was May 8, so we made a weekend of it and went to Glennallen and Tok. We saw 11 moose, 11 caribou, beaver, rabbits and porcupines on the way down and back. We stayed with good friends and had a nice relaxing time.

Our little chicks are turning into chickens! This is a rabbit hutch turned upside down and made into a chicken pen. The kids can fit inside and they go and sit with the chicks.

Ethan has become quite the artist with the Etch-A-Sketch! I know I couldn't do this!

What a great Mother's Day present from Bill! Just what I wanted. But cooking with stainless steel is certainly different than non-stick!

We are having fun with the chicks. The kids each took two to school today for show and tell. They are so fun to watch!


Both kids won trophies in the Tae Kwon Do tournament held in Nenana this last weekend. Aerin got first in Sparring and third in Patterns and Ethan got first in patterns and third in Sparring!

This week is incredibly busy. Maggie has a sore on her leg, so she went to the vet yesterday for medicine and to update her shots. While we were gone the landlord came over and replaced some of the porch boards. Today is helping with Project Overhaul, a local clean up effort, then Wellness in Nenana meeting, then a funeral for Bob Eldridge followed by a potluck, then a meeting this evening about the gas pipeline. Wednesday is the Ethan's class field trip and the Spring Concert in the evening. Thursday is Aerin's class field trip, the Crowly Community Picnic and Races, and 4H in the evening. Friday is the School Clean-Up BBQ followed by a community Clean-Up Day. Saturday nothing yet. Sunday is Graduation followed by a picnic party for the graduates. Whew!
