3rd grade Fiesta

Today all the 3rd grade classes had a fiesta!  They started by singing songs.  Anna was in the back row, toward the left (very hard to see her!).  
It is a big group!
They sang a few songs.

Then they lined up and got ready to dance with their partner.  
Dancing time!
She had a great time!

Water balloon fun!

Today the kids were thrilled to fill up some water balloons and bounce around on the trampoline with them.  They lasted a lot longer than expected!

Enjoying a local park...and there was water in the creek!

Today we were going to take the kids to the beach for a bit to play at the park, play in the sand and the "edge" of the water.  With the fog rolling in at most beaches, the one clear beach was crazy crowded so we headed to a local park with fingers crossed that there would be water in the creek still.  There sure was!  The kids were thrilled and it worked out better than the beach, there was shade for them to play.  On the down side, there was moss on a fair amount of the rocks which caused all three kids to slide and get all wet.  We were prepared for that possibility though so it all worked out!  

 This gives you an idea of how deep it was (and this wasn't the deepest spot).

We all really enjoyed the time in nature.

Writing Competing 2017 Awards Night

Tonight we celebrated the writer that Anna has become!  She received a special award at a district awards ceremony.  There were five categories with about 20 students each category receiving awards (from kinder through 12 grade).  The category Anna received her award in was personal narrative.  It was a story about playing soccer in the rain with Mason, and it was written in Spanish!  

Getting her medal.
 The required handshakes.

 Her best friend also got an award!
 Her teacher was there to help the five (yes, five in one class!) kids who got awards.
 Keep up the hard work Anna!

Full Crazy!

Today Matt ran a full marathon, and yes, it was a hot one!  They started almost an hour and half after they did last year, and with a hot day, it was a hot mess!  Even with all of that, Matt finished yet another marathon!  We were thrilled to cheer him in after meeting him for a drink refill earlier in the morning.  (you can see the boys on the left side of the fence running from a ways away with Matt and Anna on the left side of the fence cheering for him as he approached)
We are so proud of you!!
