A Look Back at 2013 - MAY

May is Brain Tumor Awareness month and so my mom made a large GRAY RIBBON to put on her door with names of mostly DIPG kids and others that have passed away from brain tumors.  Oliver, of course is the one in the center with golden wings.  We will always continue to raise awareness for brain tumors in Oliver's memory.  ALL of these fighters will have a special place in my heart.

I was looking through these sweet posters that Oliver's classmates made for him after he passed away in 2012.

Fun at Chuck E. Cheese with our little friend, Chloe.
Finn throwing rocks in the lake at George Wyth.
Eden and the fourth graders.
McKenzie and Eden -- 4th grade Vocal Music Concert
Phineas... I mean... Batman with his Super Donut Ring...

Eden's Talent Show - Eden and her friends got together for an exercise routine with a twist.  They performed to the song "Flashdance".  The crowd was constantly laughing!  I did a similar thing in my 5th or 6th grade talent show and told her about it.  They did a GREAT job!  Upper right photo - Eden, Sayde, McKenzie, Jaida, Kamiah, Gabby.  Eden and her friend, Camdyn.  Eden with Grandma Young.  Sayde, Eden and McKenzie.

The boys on our friend's motorcycle.  Love those smiles!
Eden drew this picture of Emily from the movie "The Corpse Bride".

 I always try to take last day of school photos of the kids with their teachers and classes.  I didn't get Jaren's class or a photo with his teacher and one of his associates.  Jaren is with Mrs. Heinz, one of his para educators who happens to be our good friend.  Eden is with her 4th grade teacher, Miss Flack.  Jaren was chased and is getting some hugs from a classmate who I think may have had a crush on him!  :)  Every year on the last day of school, we take the kids to get ice cream cones at Rudy's Tacos down the street.  Eden invited McKenzie and Sayde to join us this year!
