Focus on a Family

Posted: August 29, 2012 in Class Fun, Community, Families, Fun Stuff

Want to learn more about the peeps in class….see if you can guess who this is!

This cat once had aspirations to become an engineer….then an attorney…but now does neither!  He loves baseball and Mystery Science Theater 3000 reruns (no idea what that is!)  He snagged his wife when he was a teacher and she was a student (in college).

She grew up a Cornhusker, but coverted to a Jayhawk in college.  She can speak the best Spanish ever!  She was so infatuated with her college professor that she married him.  Her Spanish speaking skills have come in handy in helping Arabic and Chinese college students to speak English.

Together they like BBQ shacks, burger stands, and sketchy restaurants.  If something has “museum” on it, they are THERE!

They have one child…named after the third president of the United States.  He likes Mario Kart, Spongebob, and telling convoluted stories that never end (so say his parents).

He is a published author, and she moonlights as a painter!

Who is it?

Jeremy, Breanna, and Jefferson Walling—–what a great blessing to our class!



Coming Up….

Posted: May 8, 2012 in Class Fun, Community, Fun Stuff


Class Social this Saturday at Cape County Park South.  Thanks to Jennifer Dennis for leading this.  I think it starts at 3 pm.  Jennifer, can you post a comment clarifying the time and which shelter.

Bring games and fun stuff.  We can pull a little Duck Dynasty if someone wants to bring golf clubs, golf balls, and guns!  Just kidding Troy Martin.

Here are the food sign ups:



Martins—side dish

Bowmans—side dish


Burgards—side dish

Crismans—race track slaw (do we have to eat this fast???)

Old Bandermanns—corn

Ewasko—fruit salad

Young Bandermanns—dessert


Greenes—tater salad

If you are not listed and will be there, please post a comment so we know how much chicken to buy, as well as what you will bring.  Remember that you may need to bring a cooler or something to keep your dessert/side dish “fresh”.  Also remember to bring drinks for your family.

Also, Sarah Bandermann “Sprinkle” is 5/17 at Saffron—6:30 pm.  Ladies—put it on your calendars.

See you Saturday.


Y’all ready for some tacos with some college peeps?

April 15th we are getting creative and doing a taco bar (please do not mention “bar” as we are Baptists and people may get confused).

Whitney, our leader in this shindig, says we should plan to feed 100—I assume that includes us and our kiddos.  The El Torero meat idea did not pan out, so we are going to have to bring some BEEF (you may want to ask Kenn R if he has any ground beef!)

Here is who signed up for what:

4 lbs taco meat——–Young Bandermanns

4 lbs taco meat——–Greenes

Lettuce/Diced tomatoes—Ewaskos

3 large bags shredded cheese—Older Bandermanns

Sour Cream and Salsa—Wallings

Crock Pot Rotel—Bowmans

Crock of Refried Beans—WHO WANTS THIS ONE????

If your name is not listed and you will be here and are willing to bring something, please leave a comment with what you are bringing and I will edit the post and hopefully the “Opens” will be no more.


Send me a message with your email if you did not get an invite to join the madness.

Are you a bracket man….or bracket woman?

Big game on Saturday!  Any projections?  Anyone want to give someone a hard time?  Will Mizzou pull off the season sweep, or will KU get revenge?  Will this be the last regular season game between these two hated foes?  Will this be an epic battle on the hardwood?  Will there be the famous “rock-chalk-jayhawk-ku” chant on Saturday, or will Mizzou silence the fans at Phog-Allen?  What say you?





Saturday is our class Christmas party…and we are hooking up with the Lancaster/Wilson class.

Details:  6 pm at our place–1509 Boxwood (from Cape—take N. Kingshighway out of Cape toward Jackson.  This will become Jackson Blvd.  Continue past Wal-Mart, across railroad tracks.  Turn right on Farmington at the 2nd light past the railroad tracks.  Continue on Farmington and go through traffic light at Farmington and Independence—stop at the light if it is red.  Turn left on Redbud, which is the first street to the left after you cross Independence.  Redbud will end at Boxwood.  We are on the right @ 1509.  Not sure why I just typed all that since most of you have a GPS or iPhone.

We will do a white elephant exchange—-men bring a men’s gift….ladies bring a ladie’s gift.  No purchasing.  Needs to be something laying around your house.  Meredith O. mentioned having extra after cleaning out a closet if you have nothing.

Food will be finger foods/appetizers and desserts.  We will have coffee and some kind of winter, Christmas drink.

Does anyone have the sign up list for what they are bringing so we don’t have 20 people bringing chicken wings?
