We had a nice little lunch in the shade to cool off.
The Sting Rays was definitely the boys favorite. Slick and slippery!
Last chance to bang the drum!!
Me and my buddy!
See...he does love me. He was not attached to me at all today unlike his sister during her field trip but while we were walking out he grabbed my hand and didn't let go. I snapped a picture just in case he forgot :-)
Andrew chose to ride the bus back to school instead of coming home with me. I chose not to take offense because all of the boys did it (and he's only ridden a bus twice, including today)....and us Moms just met them at school.
Today is Andrew's field trip to the John Ball Zoo. It was a hot but fun one. We had the entire day all to ourselves to just enjoy the zoo. No schedule besides lunch. We got a picture with Mrs. Coffin and then we were off.
I walked around with Jacob's mom Niki. Sully, Jacob and Andrew were buddies for the day. Let's just say this field trip was way different than any other one I have been on. And why? Because I was with these three boys who couldn't keep their hands off each other, and wanted to run every where. They kept us on our toes for sure.
Tonight we went to the catholic church parking lot for some remote control car driving. Andrew has this new Jeff Gordon car he just got from Nana and Papa. It's pretty fast!
Adeline had such a great attitude while driving her Strawberry Shortcake car. A couple of times James almost drove over Adeline's little car with his Jeep. It was funny and she kept a pretty good attitude about it.
We are loving baseball season. Just such a fun time.
The nice thing is there is no "three strikes you're out" here. Although sometimes the tee gets brought back out. Andrew was lucky they didn't bring it out for him this time. They knew he could do it since he kept getting a piece of it.
Andrew got to place first base tonight. He did a really good job. You basically only get to touch the ball if you are on the pitchers mound or first base. So tonight Andrew got a lot of ball time.
Adeline's field trip this Spring was at Camp Pendalouan. In two years when Adeline is in fifth grade they will come here for an over-nighter. We were learning all about the Lumber Jacks. How they sawed wood, moved the logs, hardly got paid anything, did this six days a week, from dawn until dusk.
This was a fun game where the kids would hit each other in the rear and try to knock one down off their block.
Adeline and Harmoni trying to move their log...it's more difficult than it looks.
Everybody got a chance to saw. The whole class, two at a time. Adeline and Harmoni were one of the first two to go and then they came back for a second time. And guess what???????
THEY cut it off!!! Good job girls, way to use those muscles.
