First Day of School 2017
These kids are growing up! !st, 3rd, 5th, 7th!
I love that these guys are best friends!
Benji saying goodbye as he catches carpool to Jr High and Rose saying hello to the big 1st grade all day school!
Cousins! This is the morning crew – the rest of the neighbors are on B track this year.
Benji is done with 11 year old Scouts! We just had a court of Honor and he got his Tenderfoot and 2nd Class. He has only a few more requirements to get his 1st class and he earned his first merit badge: First Aid.
Benji got called up to teach the bowline knot and then they had a race. Ben won. Benji took 2nd.
Packer finally received his Bear badge and we had a fun game of water kickball.
Rose got to go to school from 9:15-1:15 and visit all of the 1st grade classrooms and teachers. She loved it! Benji got to be her and Ellie’s 6th grade buddy! He loved it. Rose loved walking home with all the neighborhood kids.
This year they didn’t get split into their new classes and see who their new teacher might be so… we all just have to wait to find out. We are getting a new Principal and Vice Principal this next year so…
Ray is getting excited to go to Kindergarten!
Benji, Packer and Cali had their 1st piano recital!
Benji played William Tell Overture, Packer played Twinkle Twinkle and Cali played Yankee Doodle.
Happy Birthday Packer!
First things first – PRESENTS for the Birthday Boy!
A quick picture at the school when we dropped Rose off and had Packer run over from his lunch recess!
His gifts this year kept him busy all afternoon! Magic Tracks, Spinner, Fidget Cube, Shut the Box and Stacking Cups for days:
We had hot dogs for dinner and then went to Pack Meeting. Packer earned his Bear badge! and is on to the Webelos Den now!
We hurried home from Pack Meeting to visit with Grandma and Grandpa Nettesheim. They gave Packer a cool solar powered watch! Then Ben finally got home from a long day at work and he brought an ice cream cake to celebrate!!
Packer, Pack-Attack, PacMan. This kid beats to his own drum. He likes to do crafts and stop action videos and play computer games. He still loves Minecraft. He hangs with Benji, plays soccer and wrestles. He’s started reading the Harry Potter series but he LOVES Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We’ve been teasing him about being in the double digits and liking girls. His humor is getting pretty fun and he’s getting a little better at looking outside of himself and helping others.
“Mom, I’m excited for 2 things this week!”
“What’s that Packer?”
“It’s my first wrestling tournament and I’m finally old enough to go on the roof with dad to put up the Christmas Lights!”
