Our Family: Week of 6/2-6/8

On Monday Grace had a field trip to Mount Charleston for the Lee Canyon Challenge Course.

It was an all-day field trip with lots of climbing, jumping, and fun.

She came home happy (and exhausted).


On Tuesday, Adam had his "Crossover" from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.

It was a sweet ceremony.

I can NOT believe I have a Boy Scout!

After his ceremony, he spent his last Webelos activity learning about circuits.


On Wednesday, Josh, Sam and I went to Target to get some essentials...

... and happened upon some 75% off jackets and pullovers for next winter.

Which, obviously, needed to be worn as soon as they got home from school in the 108 degree weather.



On Thursday we wrote a whole pile of "thank you" notes to the amazing teachers and staff at the kids school.

Adam with his advisory teacher, Mrs. Sanchez:

Grace with her advisory teacher, Mr. Ocasio:

I could NOT have asked for better teachers for my kids this year.

They have grown sooo much.

Good teachers are amazing.


On Friday, the kids had field day for their last day of school!

Followed by an after school sports banquet/swim party.

Followed by our "Summer Family Party."

Followed by an epic water war with their newly acquired water balloons.

Followed by donuts (it was National Donut Day, afterall)...

... followed by some serious sleep by some exhausted kids.


Last week Sam discovered he could grab his toes.

He spends every waking moment, when he's not eating, with them in his hands.

Pretty darn cute.

Adam had a basketball game Saturday morning.

He scored 2 points and had a lot of fun playing "full court" (they usually are half-court because other teams are playing at the same time).

That afternoon we held our lemonade stand for the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation with my Activity Days girls.

We had a fun time, made $37, and drank a whole lotta lemonade in the crazy-hot heat.

(I think next year we will try morning again... cooler AND we made more money).

It was an awesome last week of school.

Bring on summer!
