Owen's New Dance Moves

Last Saturday Brent and I went to the Ft. Riley Garage Sales. It rained almost the whole time, but found some good stuff. One of my good buys was a electric keyboard. The kids have had a blast messing around with it. Right now its in the living room, not sure how long it will stay there, as at times it can really be quite loud and dare I say it..annoying with the kids doing their own "re-mixes"...However Owen has found the preset "beat" buttons and dances away. The older two won't admit to doing that, but they do dance as well and sooner rather than later I'm going to catch them on video too! We have the WHOLE SUMMER!

Only 1 more day of school. WoooooHooooo!

One Room School House

On Tuesday, Garrett's 4th grade class had the opportunity to attend a one room school house for a day.  From what I saw it looked like all were having a good time.  They even got to pick new names for the day.  Garrett's was "Mark"...yes, brother Mark, you should be so proud!  Marcus was also my grandpa's name who attended a one room school house in South Dakota. 

Here is the class and room.  Garrett is in the back row w/the red shorts. 

Here he is working with a quill pen and ink.  (stupid blogger, won't rotate my picture)
Here he is smiling so I would leave!
While waiting for lunch time, Owen played at a little park.
After a "sack" lunch that was carried by tin pails, the kids played boys against girls in a softball game.
