Field Trip to Placerita Canyon

I got to attend Ashton's class field trip a few weeks back.  We went to Placerita Canyon Nature Center.  Lots of rescued animals, trails to hike and history to see.  

Spring Programs

 Cameron and Ashton have both finished their class programs for the year.  Cameron performed "Gold Rush or Bust" and was an argonaut.  Ashton performed "How Does Your Garden Grow?" and shined as a ladybug - with a speaking part!  So proud of these guys and all their hard work!
Got to love the goofy face  :)

Rock the Rhythm

The clock timing our drum circle for the record

Rock the Rhythm, Beat the Odds, is a community-wide event that I attended on Friday with 7,600 sixth and seventh graders from local school districts. We met at College of the Canyon’s Cougar Stadium to break a Guinness World Record for the largest drum circle and to promote the importance of arts in our schools.  It was hot but a very rewarding experience!  I didn't get photos of Ethan but he was there as well.  We'll find out in a few weeks if we broke the record or not!

Birthday/Mother's Day

Ashton made this for me at school.  Aww....

Lots of fun over the last few days!  These guys know how to make the only girl in the house feel special.  Lots of eating out, shopping, hugs and homemade cards have filled my cup to overflowing.  I'm a blessed gal!

Dancing the cha-cha

Ethan is enrolled in exploratory dance at school this quarter.  While he isn't thrilled with it, he has learned some cool dances and then comes home to share it with us.  Here he's teaching me the cha-cha.  As you can see, I'm in the middle of cooking dinner which is why I'm wearing a dish towel.  lol

Soccer season wrap-up

Cameron and Ashton finished their Spring soccer season this week.  Both received medals and were honored at their team parties.  They had so much fun playing soccer!
