Retirement !!

Shell retired from Eddyville Blakesburg Fremont High School after being the secretary there for over 35 years!!  We had a little family celebration to honor her.  We started out the afternoon at Art in the Park in Oskaloosa and then headed down to Steve and Joyce's for a family cookout.  Hope she enjoys every minute and loves being semi-retired!!

Jonah turned 16! WOW-- where did those years go?

             Tony made him a peanut butter cheesecake with peanut butter cups-it was SO good!

            Jonah has always loved Spiderman, so when I found this picture online, I couldn't resist-it looks so               much like him!! Just seems like yesterday he was running around here in his spidey costume                     terrorizing the neighborhood!!

Bode and Jonah the Birthday buddies-Can't believe these guys are 8 and 16! Jonah was 8 when Bode was born!  Aunt Shell made this awesome cake for the celebration--it was Yumm-o!! 

Hope this 16 th year is an amazing one for you Jonah Michael--We love you so very much and are so proud of the young man that you are!! You are one in a million!!

10th Grade Hawk Basketball

We played Ankeny Centennial which has a lot of our former teammates on it-a tough loss for the Hawks!  We beat them the 1st time we met this season in December by 20 points--our shots just weren;t  dropping this night and we lost by 6.  Always a good game when we play the Jags.

Away game at SEP  -- a victory!!  Very scrappy game resulting in numerous bruises and floor burns for Jonah!  Way to hang tough Ankeny!!  The season is drawing to a close with only 4 games left--hopefully we can get wins in all of them!  I love to watch these Hawks play ball :)
