Happy Opening Day of the 2012 Olympics!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Saturday, July 28, 2012,
What sports are you most excited to watch?  Do you like ping pong, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, track and field, water polo, or what? 

I personally always watched swimming.  It's not super exciting but I was a competitive swimmer so it was interesting to me.  In my day a guy named Mark Spitz was the big medal winner.  Now it's Michael Phelps.  Do you think he'll win a bunch more medals?  He has the longest arms in the world so he can just reach and win!!

Good luck athletes.  Make your cou...

I'm Back, We all Survived!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, July 23, 2012,
I loved my bike trip at the North Shore. There were 15 of us, me, my mom, sister, 3 sister-in-laws and 9 nieces but only 6 of us biked.  All our men were surviving in the Boundary Waters.  We drove up past Grand Marais to the Nanibuojou Lodge and had a wonderful lunch.  The lodge was started as a guys club and Babe Ruth was a charter member.  From there we went back to Grand Marais for a bit of a bike ride straight up hill.  The good news was we got to turn around and come back down, too.  We...

Fourth of July--Fifth is the Real Holiday!!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Thursday, July 5, 2012,
At our house the 5th of July is a holiday as it is our oldest son's birthday.  He was due on June 20th but decided not to be born until July 5th!!  By then he weighed 10 pounds, 5 oz.  Yikes!  That's a big baby.  So yesterday, he and his wife came over to do some 4th of July stuff.  They are back from Haiti and already making plans to go again.  Jake really enjoyed the mission trip too and wants to learn some of the language before he goes back.  But I digress...

Yesterday my husband, Jake, Jo...

All About Me


Jamie Lyn Kovacs I am married to John Kovacs and have 5 sons, John age 33, Jim age 31, Joe age 26, Jake age 24, Vlad age 22. 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 Amazon.com. 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.
