Something that I have been hoping to do for the past 15 years has finally been done, I took as many of the kids and grandkids that I could get ahold of and we went to Woodward Park in Tulsa. I was able to have Landon and Kayla, Emersyn and Kadence Morris, and the Million kids as well as Linda and I to take some fantastic pictures at Woodward! I have not had the opportunity to take pictures there since high school!Share on Facebook
Linda and Frances have been working on a pirate theme for Alec and Brody’s room. Frances is the artist and has created some fantastic images for their room!Share on Facebook
As mentioned on FaceBook, one door closes and another opens. I had a weekend off due to a job change. I finally am teaching again. I begin as Adjunct Professor at CareerPoint College teaching High School equivalency in the mornings Monday through Thursday and Business Spanish and Speech in the evenings. I will have Friday through Sunday free so will enjoy the long weekends with the family. I took advantage this week to set up the backyard pool for the grandkids and we took them to the Zoo this morning!
I am attaching some pictures of the trip. Enjoy!Share on Facebook
As Chandler recovers from his injuries and has to miss a week of school, we are pleased and hopeful that he will fully recover. Chances of the woman being caught dwindle and the days pass. I hope that she will find it in her heart to look at her own family and give thanks that there is no one out there like her that would do the same to her children or nieces or nephews. One can only imagine what could have gone through her mind as she drove away from a child that she hit with her car last Saturday, seeing an injured child in her rear view mirror.
So far, as the school year draws to a close, Rainee had a choir concert (pictures included here) and Alec is ‘graduating’ from Kindergarten today.Share on Facebook
The weather finally is cooperating and we are having a great time outside yesterday.
The morning was busy as J went to Shawnee to help Drew pack up and head back home for the summer. Drew will be a “Prefect” on the Honor’s Floor next year, what we used to call “Resident Advisor” or “RA”. We are proud of Drew and look forward to catching up with him as he is back over the summer!Share on Facebook
Well, stranded inside for several days has not killed anyone! We have had our share of adventures, getting out to go to the store has been a real adventure! Watching all the crazy drivers, clogging up intersections and Quik Trip would have been fine to watch if I wasn’t hoping to survive their idiocy!Share on Facebook
The Arroyo’s celebrated the end of 2010 with Rainee, Chloe, Brody and Alec Million, our grandchildren. Andrew came by to dance a couple of dances (running up the Wii scores with his Wii talents) before leaving. Though it was nippy outside, the kids enjoyed their noise-makers and popping and string things. I am uploading to You-tube some of the videos and here are some photos of the fun!Share on Facebook
From the dance party on Christmas Eve, followed by Mass of the Nativity at St. Catherine at Midnight, to our opening of gifts at our house on Christmas evening, the Arroyo family celebrated Christmas with the grandkids and most of the kids.Share on Facebook
