Hunter's amazing teacher was extremely patient and worked her hardest to make Hunter comfortable in her class. She was a great friend and teacher. The teacher and the assistant are:Hunter's friends are very important to him. He plans to go to High School with them, go on missions together, get married and live by each other. Hunter captured how he feels about his friends in one photo....

These are paintings that Harley painted with my Dad over the winter. Of course the castle hangs on my wall by my other castle picture and my sword. Harley gave that to me for Christmas, boy does she know me or what? The well is a painting of an actual wishing well that her Grandpa made and displays in his yard.All my kids have incredible talent and I am proud of the work they have brought home.
After that game the boys and Baka moved on to a friendly game of basketball. They played until it was 9pm. When they were called in, Baka came in bleeding and scraped up. Maka was worried, but Baka will pull through. I told him to take Advil and a hot bath, we were not sure he was going to be able to get out of bed the next day. But the boys had a lot of fun playing with Baka and will always have that memory with them. Fitting for memorial day right?
Before they got their official BHS Jersey's Hunter wore Dave's Bigham High School #21 to the summer practices. Although the initials were the same, the color was all wrong and Hunter was teased relentlessly due to wearing "the enemy colors". At tryouts Hunter was clocked as the fastest runner on the team and was placed on the A Team. We were so proud of him and knew that he was going to be an excellent player.

Harley ended up being the one to stick with the bottle feeding project while the boys ran off to discover other corners of Kim's property. Harley helped Kim and Kent finish the feeding and absolutely loved it!
After the cows got their dinner, we BBQ'd hamburgers and hot dogs, had watermelon, and pie! The kids ate as fast as they could because there was so much for them to do.
There was basketball,
There was ripping out bushes and leveling the horse pasture with the four wheeler. Kent was very patient and each of the kids got a turn to ride with him. The boys especially thought this was a fantastic project. The can't wait to rip out the rest of Kim's bushes...
At the end of the visit (10:30pm) the kids were happy and the adults were tired. Harley was promised a summer of staying with Kim and her new baby and the kids all fell asleep in the truck on the way home. It was a great time and we will definitely go back and visit if the Jackson's will have us! Thanks Kim and Kent for opening up your home and letting the kids explore your farm.
