Summer Camps

Benjamin chose a couple of camps this summer.  Unfortunately they began as soon as school got out, but they were interesting & certainly stretched his brain!  Camp Invention....designing & making a model of their product using recycled products, taking apart old electronics, making a 'boxcar' for an obstacle course race.  We loved getting to see all his work at the end of the week.  Next up with the **free** Microsoft camp for coding.  He has continued coding this summer.  I promised to learn along with him, however I haven't gotten very far yet.

On to 4th grade!

The last day of school was jam packed with fun.  It coincided with National Doughnut Day - hence our donut celebration afterward school was out.  Benjamin had a fabulous year & the boys are excited about the prospect of being in school together next year. 

Wimberley Market Days

Amy & I took a Saturday off & did some exploring in a neat town about an hour away - Wimberley.  Their Market Days event is once a month with includes acres & acres of vendors selling a little of everything and amazing BBQ just in case you get hungry during all the walking & shopping.  Amy found a great headboard for Malia's bed & light fixtures for their home.  My find: a mahagony side table for our living room for $10!   We can't wait to go again (and take our husbands too).

 My great find!

Completion of pre-K means our Trevin is ready....ready to learn even more in Kindergarten, ready to meet more friends, ready to go to school with Benjamin.  It is just the beginning of lots of learning.  He had a fabulous year, sharing many experiences with his cousin & classmate Malia. 

Each student had a part in the graduaion.  Trevin spoke his part LOUD and clear...."We already knew our letter sounds like "W", w-w-w.  W-W-W What's happening dude?  W-W-W What's going on with You?  So we learned how to read."  Then the class read a story out loud about Matt & Tom. 

Way to go, Trevin & Malia!!
