First Swim Meet

S & G participated in their first swim meet and competed in the 25m freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke races in the 7 & 8 and 6 & under groups. It was really amazing to see them both put it all together and do what they needed to get the job done. Both finished strong in all events against some seasoned competitors, and Grant even eked out a 2nd place in freestyle!

Spencer starting strong!!!

Grant off to a good start!

Read-a-thon


We (the boys and I) are reading Eragon together. We put in about two solid hours of reading tonight and I'm about losing my voice. What a great adventure story...well written...and a rich vocabulary. Spencer is hooked and kept wanting "one more" chapter! We stopped just before the one about making a saddle for the dragon...right up my alley! A great boy's tale (and mom's too :-)

Birds in the Geranium

One of my fabulous ES students, Maggie, gave me a geranium at the end of the year and I thought it was so fitting that a family of birds took up residence in the basket! The nest is at eye level and we can just peer in and watch them. They look so content with nary a worry. Pardon the dead leaves on it, but I can't see cleaning it up when it's all serving as shelter. Cute!!
