Isaac's Graduation Party

Lots of people = lots of fun.

Wow has time flown! I'm sorry it took me, (AnaLise,) so long to get this post out, especially sense the open house was in June!!! This is a picture acount of Isaac's graduation party of which many of you helped take part in. We had beautiful weather, a good turn out, didn't even come close to running out of food, plenty of helpers, and plenty of fun. Thanks to all those who made this a memorable experience.

Adorable Drew.

Isaac delivering his brief "acceptance" speech. He couldn't resist an opportunity for a little dry humor.The graduates sang a few songs together with harmony parts.

The T.E.A.C.H. Superintendant, Mr. Newhouse, conducted the graduate choir.

Isaac played his bass as the Alzen Family performed a song at the graduation.

We sang "On the Sea of Life"

A wonderful graduating class with some very impressive graduates!

Milwaukee Music Trip

This summer we had a concert trip for Millwakee, Michigan, Green bay, and Illinois, so we made it into a 'vacation' by going to Six Flags theme park in Illinois and to a Brewers vs. Twins game at the Millwakee Brewers stadium. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Twins-Brewers Game in Milwaukee

While on our music tour in easter Wisconsin, we took in a Twins-Brewers game in Milwaukee. It was a beautiful day, and we had a great time. The Twins won!

Check it out!!!

The Brewers have an awesome stadium, especially compared to the Metrodome but soon that will be different.

Brotherly conflict. (Notice the different shirts.)
