The kids are home from school today because of Memorial Day. We have 10 days left of school!! I know for all you who are out, this seems insane, same to me. Wish our state could figure it out!! We aren't doing much. Hopefully we will make it to the cemetary today. I hope that I can talk Eric into moving the girls to BC Cemetary. It would be so much easier to go then. We haven't had anything to exciting happen. Oh yeh, yesterday I opened the door to let Brek go outside and a bird flew in. It must have been a baby because it couldn't find it's way out. After it hit the wall a couple of times, it gave up and Eric caught it and took it outside. The best thing was Summer screaming and screaming. She claims she likes animals but she sure doesn't want anything to do with them when they're around. It was fun!! We did get to have dinner with mom and dad last night and Mom's cousin came from 3-cities and A. Kathy. We played a mean game of scrabble and had a fun time. Other than that, we don't have too much going on.

This last pic is for Erica and Ki. We saw this statue on our way east. Way off in the distance, we saw it coming up and Mijken and I were talking excitedly about it. "Oh look, a cool looking rock, oh ahh!!" As we got closer I said, "It looks like Ab Lincoln, don't you think?" Getting closer still, DUH!! It's a monument dedicated to Lincoln. We thought we had found some amazing rock formation that nobody had discovered before. Yeh, not really, it's man made, put there on purpose! Erica and Ki, who have seen it several times thought it was hilarious!

In all of the hoopla of a trip and coming home, Bode decided to be born today 6 years ago. Actually he was born at 10:02pm so he's not OFFICIALLY 6 yet. We celebrated last night. He got CARS, cars, a bike, bubble machine from Lexi and the infamous swimming towel that all my kids get for each of their birthdays. He also wanted ice cream cake (which I didn't have ANY of and there's still some left). It was a fun FHE because first I made everyone work in the yard, weed my flower bed and plant my new flowers.

Nebraska is a neat place. It's fun to see different parts of the country and really this is the farthest east I've ever been other than layovers in airports. Some neat sites that we have seen
The biggest bone yard/junk yard in the states!!

Here's some pictures of the finished product:
