I've had a very busy couple of weeks...

Here are a few pictures of my last few weeks. We had many end of the year activities. Being the parent of a Junior adds to the responsibilities. So I will try to get "caught up" in one post!!
Here is a beautiful picture of Mt. Hess and Mt. Deborah in the Alaska Range. One of the men of our church took the picture (he is a photographer) and had it on his web page So I had it blown up and then got it matted and framed. I love it, I think it turned out beautiful.

My Mother's day flowers. Did a already post this? No I don't think I did.

Katie and Thomas went to the Jr/Sr banquet together.

Heidi and my cousin, Thad, went to the Jr./Sr. Banquet together.

The decorations were beautiful!!

The end of the year Choir Concert was wonderful. The kids get better every year. We are sorry to be losing Mrs. Weed. :(
Katie was playing with my "cheap ole" camera and got some really good pictures of some flowers. I wish I had time and room to post them all. I just loved the lighting on these.
Graduation was really awesome this year. We had a graduating class of 10 or 11 kids.... really great kids.
One of the highlights of the graduation was Bro. John Betters receiving his honorary Dr. of Divinity degree from God's Bible School. It was really neat!! He got a long standing ovation!

Dr. Betters and Dr. Avery

Here are a couple of pictures of animals that we have seen this winter. The bottom picture is of an owl hidden in the tree. The next is a picture of a porcupine we saw on the way home from Anchorage today. We also saw some Dall Sheep today, I think I will post a video of them too. (Well, I tried to upload a video but I couldn't... Blogger wouldn't let me)


Can you see it?

And our yard becomes a pond with all of the melting snow, so the boys get to play and make lots of laundry for their mother.
