Before homework, before self-defense class, the boys played. It was belly-laughing, sharing, cooperating, play. The big farts were nice to the little farts. The little farts were nice to the big ones….and then they branched off and played separately. Just Delightful. Drama-free play is my favorite kind. Nolan walked home with Nick and stayed a couple of hours, Luke arrived about 4 and we dropped him off on the way to self-defense class. Good times.

Teacher Appreciation Quad Signs

I worked on the signs all day today while my computer worked at snail-like speed! I made one for Joe’s Teacher, one for Nick’s RSP Teacher, luckily Nick’s classroom teacher was taken care of because I think I would have thrown my computer threw the window! The theme was pyramid of sucess….which I honestly think the whole concept is lost on 5 to 10 yr olds(well over half the school!!), anywho…I tried the pyramid thing with Joe’s Teacher….and didn’t with Nicks!!

Hubba was the instructor for an emergency preparedness class for Boys Scouts….it took about three hours and was so draining he forgot about Tony’s Football practice(opps)

Early morning garage sale to support the Boy Scout Troop. They are holding an item that was donated by a member of the community where the meetings are held. It went pretty well!

First Limo Ride

Nick was so excited about his very first limo ride. He was invited to a birthday party for a kiddo in his class. I had to stay after school and snap a picture….or two!

Went to Joe’s class today and took a picture of each kiddo with the current book they are reading. Thought it might be a good memory for them so I wanted to have it in the yearbook.

Devils Canyon

Tony and Hubba went on a 2.8 mile hike on a trail called Devil Canyon in the Angeles National Forest. 1500ft elevation change with 35(tony)pd 55(hubba)pd backpacks on their backs! (Wowzers.) A scorpion crawled in between Tony’s protective plastic and tent while he was sleeping and he rolled over on it and killed it in the middle of the night.(double Wowzers)

They had a great time…saw rattlesnakes, filtered their own water…a great time!
