Graduation for Two of the Filley boys

Austin and John graduated on Friday. Next year Austin will be moving on to 5th grade at Zack White Elementary. This will be the first time he is away from Escuela and it's going to be hard on all of us. John completed his year, but will still be in the second phase of the Kinder class next year at Escuela. We at least have one left with us there.

Celebrating Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

Blake and I

Mimi, Marti and Badad

We had a delicous lunch at the Santa Teresa Country Club. We missed having the rest of the boys with us, but the food was wonderful and the conversation was as always.....entertaining.

Blake's favorite part was:

The chocolate cake

Celebrating Poppo's Bday

Dwight, better know as Poppo, turned 67 on April 25th but we didn't have all 7 of us together so we waited to celebrate until this weekend. We went up to the "Cabin" in Cloudcroft. Blake, Austin and John went up earlier with Grammy and Poppo, then Sean, Jason, Steve and I came up a little bit later.

John put the candles on Poppo's cake and listened to the funny cards.

The boys spent some time helping Grammy and Poppo clean up the pine needles.

While Austin was digging for fossils, John and Blake were making sure the hammock was working. Eventually Jason joined Austin in his excavation.

During the day we started to notice how much Sean is looking like Steve.
