Cody’s “Bodger Birthday”!

September 24, 2012

Cody is finally, officially, a Bodger!


Father’s Day 2012


All these guys gathered to honored the big guy in the middle with all the grey hair, John. Thanks to Jason for hosting everyone, as this was the first time all the boys had been together on Father’s Day in over 20 years. Quite an accomplishment.

To honor their dad, Ashley & Bekah used Willie’s new lawn mower to get instruction and mow the lawn for the 1st time.



Way to go girls! 

And, being in the country for Father’s Day has its benefits. Jason took Ashley for her 1st drive.¬†


Happy Father’s Day to one great guy. I love you, Willie!

I am tired of the last post… Gotta put something new up


Obviously, it’s been a long time since I blogged. Been a little busy around here.

Cody has now been with our family for over 6 months, and I just contacted the attorney today about getting the finalization of the adoption set!

Bekah has finished her first MSP testing, and survived, though after the 1st day I wasn’t sure she would.

Jordan is participating in his 6th year of baseball, and is helping manage his school’s track team.

Ashley is days away from her first AP test. Big, scary deal.

Willie is now working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute, and enjoying it!

I am just about into a routine, and before long it will all be thrown out the window as summer vacation arrives.
