Not sure where the summer is going. I thought we would be less busy when school was out but we have been running around to swim practices, tennis lessons, hanging out with friends, movies, basketball camp, library, junior lifeguard classes, swim meets and fitting in a workout whenever possible! It's much better than being bored!

Sixth Grade Clap Out

On the last day of school here the school has a "Clap out" for the sixth graders. A "Clap out" is when the rest of the school for a "tunnel" beginning at the back door and going to the parking lot. When the bell rings at the end of the day, the sixth graders exit the building walking through the "tunnel" while the rest of the school claps for them. I have no idea if they do this at other schools in our district, but is has become tradition at our school. Jennia came with me over the school with Christine's fan club. We put the top down on the Jeep per Christine's request. We had a minor problem before the kids came out of the school-Trent got stung by a bee. This picture was before the bee got him.

Basketball Party

Christine has been playing basketball with these girls for the last two years. Next year they will all be off to a different junior high. Most of them will be at South Valley and Christine will be at Payne. She has had a lot of fun with them and learned a lot from her coach. They were at the house over the weekend for an end-of-season party. The next time we see most of them they will probably be playing against Christine!
