I STILL HAVEN'T PROCESSED THE FACT THAT JAKE HAS GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL! My parents, brother and sister flew out for the celebration and it was absolutely WONDERFUL!

Awards Assembly at the High School

(Notice his eye-rolling!)



My School Honored the Graduates of Their Teachers

My parents came to the 2nd grade end-of-the-year class picnic!



Zack could hardly wait to get Lynn (my sister) in the tank! She did a great job and provided a lot of entertainment!!!

She even went crawdad fishing! Zack taught her how to tell if it was a male or female...

When we came up from the tank, I fed the chickens, gathered eggs and discovered a HUGE rat snake behind my feed bin! Of course, the moment Zack heard there was a snake, he sprinted to the chickenhouse, scaled the fence and within a few breaths, he had caught it!

My brother, Matt, enjoyed the Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom experience!

Of course, when Zack was finally able to talk Lynn into holding the snake, it quickly progressed to persuading her to put it around her neck. The eggs that it had apparently been digesting, were instantly spewed from the snake's rectum and the stench of rotten egg encapsulated her! She almost vomitted on command!

FINALLY! I've been waiting to see Jake graduate - and catch up on the family! Congratulations, Jake (and parents!). Wish we could have been there to visit. Your family looks wonderful, and it looks like y'all had a great time! Miss you!
