Open House at Nathan's School

They made an electric city...Nathan was so excited about it...he loves math and science. He and his friend Jason had to make the Police Station at ElectriCity!

This is Nathan's desk, he is a very neat boy. I can't believe that school is almost's bittersweet. I love that summer is almost here, but I hate that my kids are growing up so fast.

San Clemente

Today Nathan, Darrell, and I went to San Clemente because Nathan needed new Rainbow sandals. They have their factory outlet store close to the beach, so we decided to take a field trip. This is the three of us wearing our Rainbows, before entering the store! We all love these sandals...our favorites!
Stacks and stacks, and shelves and shelves of sandals. They have a lot of funky new styles, but we always get the traditional sandals.
Check these out...fleece-lined sandals. They look so cozy, but they would get nasty, dirty and stinky really fast.
Then, we went to a Mexican food restaurant for lunch. This is my Taco Salad...yummy!
We took a walk down to the beach, and they were having a Surfer/Hawaiian festival. The Woody's were lining the street.

The Hula Dancers were performing...
To Beautiful Hawaiian music...
We drove down PCH to get home. The weather was beautiful and we had a fantastic day. What did you do today??

Molly Got a Haircut

This is what Molly looked like at 11:00
This is where she was at 1:00. The groomer (hi Jenn) comes to our house.

At 2:00...this is Molly after a "tune-up." She smells good, can see out of both eyes, and is brushed and has soft hair. What a spoiled puppy!

Sun Catcher

Last night Nathan decided he wanted to make a Sun Catcher. We have a bunch of art materials here that my Dear Friend Barbie gave to us before she moved to North Carolina, so we got it out and he made this beautiful teapot. It's a beautiful sunny SoCal day today.

A Mathlete in the Family!

The 4th grade team...aren't they smart-looking?
Nathan and Xander...such sweet boys...I wanna hug them!

The poster that they and artistic...impressive!
The team with their "Coach"...she is the best! Nathan was blessed to have her for his teacher this year...she won the "Teacher of the Year" award for the entire school.
The fan club.
The auditorium was filled with Math Geeks...or what they like to be called "Mathletes."
Kyle came to cheer on his brother...yes, his Mom made him come!
Nathan was honored to be on the Academic Math Team for his school this year. They have been practicing for several hours per week this entire school year. Yesterday was the competition. Our school had 3 teams of 4 kids in 3 grade levels, so he was one of only 4 4th graders to be chosen. Needless to say, we are very proud of always. Sadly, they did not win any medals, but we don't care. He practiced hard, was part of a great team, had a terrific "coach" (who is also his teacher...whom we love so much), and learned a lot about math.
