He's A Poet And He Knows It

|
Both kiddos have grown mentally by leaps-and-bounds this year.  Both of their teachers have challanged and pushed them out of their comfort zones - which is where you learn and change.

Jaxson's class had their poetry reading day.  They wrote their own poems and then read them in front of friends, family, peers, etc.  Proud beyond words to see him get up and do this - and actually enjoy it.  The kid has a creative side that is just begging to come out.


May I Have Your Attention Please...

|
Miss AB is shy; well, sometimes.

She is very shy at first glance, until she is comfortable with the people around her and her surroundings - then all hell breaks loose (much like myself).

AB's teacher sent Robyn this picture; AB is upfront of her class reading aloud a "book" she wrote recently.  Completely out of her ordinary self, but so happy to see her doing this.  Slowly breaking out of that shell.

Rita's - Post Field Day

How all days should end...


Fun Filled Field Day...

|
Hottest day of the year so far (a scorching 85*) and the school had their annual field day.  This was the first chance I had the opportunity to volunteer...God bless teachers.



First Carnival Of The Year

|
The kid's school hosted a "carnival" to end the week.  Either though no rides, clowns, or gypsies were around, it was still fun and raised some good money for the school.

We're still cleaning the color spray out the kids hair and off their scalp, it was a good way to start the weekend off right.


Monday Morning Done Right

|
Maybe one of the best starts to a work week.  An ass-kicking hike in Harper's Ferry with Robbie to start the week off right.



Cats.

|
The ladies of the family attended a high school musical, Cats, put on by Mimi's high school students.

The little lady liked a few of the kitties.


Ground Support

|
The only thing more important then training properly for a run is having support.  Hands down, I have the best support team out there.

Couldn't do it without my team.

Doing It O's Style

|
I'm lucky enough to have my birthday during the spring, when the world is coming out of hibernation and the baseball season is freshly underway.  We try to hit up a game around my birthday every year; this year, we did it O's style.

Valley Movie Night

|
Movie night at the school.  Touch to beat $1 tickets and cheap movie snacks; now if we could only get the room full of kids to shut their mouths so we could actually hear the movie...


Award Winning Character

|
Quarterly awards are handed out at the kid's school.  They range from actual curriculum achievements, to attendance achievements, and character recognition.  Miss AB won the "Caring" award for this quarter.
