The 1st it Is, For Real This Time

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, August 22, 2011,
Jake is actually moving into college on the 30th which is Tuesday so that day won't work at all.  Let's just go with the 1st of September as our date.  I am making the invitations as we speak and they will be in the mail soon.  I am so excited.  Except for when Antonia came to my house and when Allie Gruber stopped over because she was on a soccer team with one of my neighbor girls I have never had my school kids to my house before.  I really want you all to come.  I hope you can all make it....

Our back to school party will be Thursday, September 1st.  The bad news is, all my kids except Vlad will be gone by then.  Even Jake will be at college.  You guys never got to meet Jake except for at Gem Lake.  Hmm...if we have the party Monday or Tuesday, he'll be there.  Hmmm...maybe I need to rethink this.  Would Tuesday work?

I'll let you know.  I am writing the invites as we speak.  Watch your mail.   Mrs. Kovacs

In looking at the calendar I have determined that the best dates for the "Back to School" Party at my house are Monday 8/29, Tuesday 8/30 or Thursday 9/1.  What will work best for you?  Blog me and let me know and I will pick a day and get some invites in the mail soon.

Back to School Party

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, August 1, 2011,
What do you think about a back to school party?  I was thinking it might be fun to invite you all over to my house for a back to school party.  We could play corn hole, foosball, ping pong, 4 square, frisbee golf, junk ball (my boys will tell you all about that), go down the slide in my house and other things.  I was thinking maybe everyone could bring an item of school supplies to donate to kids in need or maybe a can of food for the food shelf or both.  We could goof around, eat some supper...

All About Me

Jamie Lyn Kovacs I am married to John Kovacs and have 5 sons, John age 33, Jim age 31, Joe age 28, Jake age 26, Vlad age 23. I also have 3 grandchildren, Jack and Lydia, who are the kids of my oldest son and his wife, and Baby Kennedy who is the newborn of my second son and his wife. The older kids are 5 and 2. My family lives in White Bear Lake. ____________My son John is married and lives in Turkey with his wife Pamela and son Jack and daughter Lydia. Hey, that makes me a grandmother--yikes! John is a teacher too. A couple years ago he taught at White Bear Lake but for the last couple years he's been teaching social studies to middle school kids at Hope Academy in Minneapolis. He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 13th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years. Teaching is way more fun!! Now they are living in Turkey and simply trying to learn the language and make connections. This year my son will be teaching high school world history at an international school. __________My son Jim lives in Blaine with his wife Courtney. They both graduated from Winona State where they were star pitchers on their baseball and softball teams. Jim graduated from St. Thomas School of Law. He clerked for a judge and now he works for a law firm in Golden Valley. His wife graduated from Des Moines University Medical School where she studied to be a physical therapist. She works for Twin Cities Orthopedics. You can check out pictures of their wedding on the summer vacation tab. __________My son Joe graduated from Moorhead State. He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school. He has a teaching license and did some long term subbing in WBL most recently at Hugo Elementary School. Next he worked at Infinite Campus training teachers on software that his employer makes. He got to travel all over the United States. He is married to Emily, and there are pictures of them you can check out on the vacation tab as well. Emily is a pharmacist for CVS in Targets. They just moved to Washington DC so he could attend George Washington University and get an MBA. __________My son Jake graduated from University of Minnesota with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a superstar in math. He was a TA for a professor in the computer science department. He really likes to golf and was on the White Bear Lake golf team. He worked at Gem Lake so if you ever golf there, you may have seen Jake. Do you like golf? As soon as he graduated he started working full time at a company that writes online computer games. He spends his day writing code to create games. He loves that kind of writing, do you? He taught many of my students to write code in Scratch. _________Vlad officially became our son in June of 2010 although we have loved him since we met him a couple years before that. We traveled to his homeland, Latvia, 3 times to make him ours. He has been living with us since March of 2010. He graduated from WBL High School too. He traveled to China with the high school a couple years ago and wants to go back. Can you believe that you can travel with your classmates and friends when you are in high school? He is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He spent a semester in Seoul, S. Korea in a study abroad program through River Falls. We will officially be empty nesters. _________My husband John works for Collins Electrical Company as a project manager but he is amazing with computers. He set up this web site for me!! Thanks John. He is the IT guy for my mom, his parents, and our whole family!! My husband and I have a cute teddy bear puppy who is 1 and a half years old. He is very spoiled.
