Reading all the time, everywhere!

 We went to see a junior production of Shrek the Musical. All the actors were kids and they did a great job. The kid that was the gingerbread man was hilarious. Complete stage ham. He carried the production in my opinion!

 Daddy, Izzie and Momma

 The girls trying to push me out of my reading spot. They are pretty good at that.

 And Maddie got BANGS! And they look so good on her.

 Izzie got a blunt cut down the back.

 Maddie trying out new hair styles.

 We were studying the Oregon Trail and I found the old game I used to play when I was a kid. After the girls got done laughing at the graphics, they had fun playing.

 Maddie making a cage for egg drop challenge. Izzie's egg broke during the making of the cage so she was disappointed.

Her egg made three drops up to the 3 foot mark. Great job!

Girl Fest

Making wire sculptures for art class today.

 Jake cuddling
with me
 Girl Scout field trip to Girl Fest. I won't go into it here on how much of a huge disappointment this event was other than to say, l wrote a letter to send to council on how poorly I thought this event was run. It was a complete embarrassment to girl scouts.

 There were a very few fun things like this opportunity to get in an ambulance.

 I found a Tardis!

Field Trip Fort Vancouver

 My girls have a ducky collection and I didn't even know it.

 My friend Janet brought me this pomegranate from the tree in her yard and got me hooked. I didn't even know I liked them.

 This is how Izzie likes to do school some days.

 Lego robotics class

 trampoline jumping with Treya.

 Homeschool fieldtrip to Fort Vancouver and old trading post fort and what our city was named after.

It turned out to be a perfect beautiful weather day for this!
