Girls Can Too!

So tawn andrew and a a friend of mine named melissa spent like three hours at utah lake a few days ago. When I finnished wake surfing tawn tawn jumped into the water with a vest on and said that she had an idea. "Like mother like daughter" and apparently as she had been watching me she realized that it wowuld be fun to try and both get up wake surfing together on the same surf board. As we are both goofy footed this sounded much simpler than it ended up being. However after many failures and alot, I mean alot of lake water drinks we finally managed to get up with a switched rope, and had alot of run celebrating.

Biking with Mom and Dad

Summer Bike Rides

I just wanted to remind everyone what AMAZING shape mom and dad are in! When they stopped in town for a night before heading back to Colorado I took them on a bike ride up the canyon. Not only do they look the part but they can keep up with someone half their age! We're lucky cause they'll probably be the fittest grandma and grandpa our kids will ever have! It was fun to have them stop in, and I hope they come to visit even more in the Fall.
P.S. Nicole Dad's biking shirt is Good look'in!!!! Nice Job!!!!

I love you mom and dad.

We DID it!

Despite the fact that Tyler was sick with food poisoning 24 hours prior to the race, and I haven't run as far as the mailbox and back in the last 4 years we ran the Bolder Boulder today and it was a total blast! ( I can't feel my legs, and I may not be able to get out of bed tomorrow, but hey, it was totally worth it!) JoEllen, Clarke, Tyler, Skip and I all started together and met up at the Folsom Stadium in CU! Congrats Skip for your big Victory....(He won out of our group and Clarke promised him text messaging if he could beat him.... Yippie Skippy!)

GhostBuster Skit

GhostBusters Skit.... oh the joys of being a teacher/drummer

Kindergarten Graduation

Kindergarten Graduation

I was lucky enough to MC the went great...I only wanted to turn around and smack the kids on the front row four times
(clearly they weren't as quiet as my classes who were sitting in the back row)

These are the other two Kindergarten Teachers
Miss Allison...isn't she adorable! She made me feel like Mrs. America with these pretty flowers.
This is little Andrew. He is such a cutie...

(His name is andrew...he wears cowboy boots every day to school, and he's holding his diploma upside down) so cute I'm going to miss sweet Austin

Oh if your wondering why my hair is all crimped out!!! Please see the video clip below featuring the talent show act that I was apart of that same day. I had to go all out for my 80's drummer bit.

Sorry to post about Kindergarten again!!! But it's been my life for the past year...and I've LOVED IT. A few days ago we had our graduation...and I am glad it is all over. The past year has flown by....Thanks Queen and Andrew for surviving graduation and for all your help and support this year.

The Circus

So on Friday we turned our Kindergarten classrooms into the Circus. All of our kids came with acts to perform for eachother. We had magicians, dancing Zebras, ballerinas, stuffed animals flying through hoops, Cheetah tamers, and fire fighters. :) I love being a Kindergarten teacher. The only downfall is that I have completely lost my voice!! Woops, hopefully it comes back soon, so my Kindergartners can hear me on Monday. Lots of love. Jo

Oh and Andrew came up with the great idea to wear his jeans and basketball shoes! Wow did I ever feel like a real clown.

California Sun

Oh what a perfect vacation California was. I just wanted to show everyone how cute little Will is. Even though you guys all saw him a couple of weeks ago. Anyone who wants to move to California with me I'm down... I (tawny speaking) could get use to the sun and beach on a regular weekend basis. Love and miss you all. I'm glad England is just around the corner.

Git 'er done...

No offense Chase, but I'm sick of looking at the freaky photo booth pic of you, so I decided to post on the perhaps forgotten Carlson Family blog. It was such a fun weekend seeing everyone, but we did miss Tawny and Andrew! Here are a few pics I didn't put on our blog because I got sick of uploading them!

Bright eyed and bushy tailed after Grandma's party.

Rock on with yo' bad selves Carlson boys.

Tickle time.

As for the title of this post... it's a call to git 'er done and actually POST on this blog. Especially the ones without their own blogs! We love to see pics and hear what's going on.

Love you all.
