Naomi Ann Conger JONES 9
Well we'll get started on this page with the July 4th Celebration in 2013, that'd be my 76th birthday. We took a whole bunch of pictures and it's really a chore to pick the few which will be representative of the whole but we have to try. We could just start with this one ....
We're all in it, I believe. Most of the others will have Naomi's family in them.
There, we have a start with Marc and Riley.
Gee Whiz something has happened to the poor girl's eyes! Now what?
This is Marc and Naomi and Emily and Naomi again ........
Like I said, they didn't seem to do much gaming this time around for some reason.
And here are the girls all in one bunch ........
Now yesterday they had a little get together out at Naomi's so we wound up with some pictures there
and I thought we may as well put them here in the group.
To start with we have a photo of Riley catching in a ball game - ay least I think that is her.
There are so many pictures, it's difficult to make choices.
Naomi had bought the kids a swimming pool and they sure enjoyed it. But apparently there was another gizmo at the party and it seemed to get most attention - a "4-wheeler"! Just look at some of the pictures. Nobody got hurt thank goodness.
The astonishing thing was- the girls just relishing the thing.
........ And , of course, a true gentleman would turn his back when .......
Now it's school time again and Riley is first with her Fall 2013 photograph ........
I think she's starting to look like me when I was that age!
I was promised a picture of the boys but have not got it yet. Emily has moved into dorm at U of Iowa
so with everyone back in school, it's starting to quiet down a little.
Ok, got a picture of one of the boys. The Centerville "Big Reds" won their home-coming football game and Ethan plays on the team. He is number 57 and right in the picture where they are doing their "win, win" routine. Anyway, here's the picture .......
I received an email with this picture in it. It appears that Riley was in music class a couple years ago and they were doing their thing and the teacher photographed them, of course, and the pictures showed such liveliness in the group, that she sent them to a contest somewhere and someone saw them and wanted to use them in marketing ads so they did. The teacher then traveled to New York a couple years later and guess what she found ........? Yep, they were still using the pictures in ads ! Here is what she found.
Well, I think THEY ARE one of the cutest groups I believe I've seen.
Naomi got Ethan's pictures and here is the one he is "suited up" in ........
He broke his hand in the county fair's "demolition derby" but he missed hardly any football, just plays with it. I think he has, since the picture was taken, had the cast removed and is playing without it.
Here's our Riley posing for her class pictures. She's growing fast .......
No education is complete without music, that thing that makes the heart sing, even in the days when things are not going very well.
So Nick and his cousin Riley, have joined the High School band and I'm proud to report both are doing very well.
Here is Riley on her band night. She plays a flute and does good job.
We had our 2014 Easter Gathering and the "egg hunt" was much reduced. We had just one toddler and then
Oscar who had to stay on the front porch.
Participating in this year's hunt was Riley, Zoie, Shon, Carlie and Travon.
This will probably be the last of the egg hunting for awhile ........
Aunt Naomi and Oscar having a talk at our gathering - something about rolling up the dough and throwing into the breadpan..
Troy tried his fishing this year and look what he came up with over at Rathbun Lake ...........
A really nice Hybrid White Bass! I didn't even know they had put any in the lake.
And about graduation time. Troy worked hard at it and got it. Good job, my boy, great work.
Hmmmm, looks like someone else has taken an interest in Troy's success!
Not sure this picture belongs here but looks good so .......
