3 kids, 3 schools

This year should prove interesting as now we are going to have one child at the elementary school, one at the middle school and one at the high school.  Let the craziness begin!

Eventually I will figure out how to load the pictures from my phone so that I can post a picture of Christine on the first day also.

Battle of the Books and Academics Award

This week Maggie and her team squeaked out a spot in the district finals for Battle of  the Books.  They had missed a question in the first round of questions, so they battled with another school for the last qualifying spot.  They had to answer 12 tie-breaker questions correct to win the last spot!  Excuse the picture, I only had my phone with me.

Christine and her friend, Gianna, were among the students honored at her high school for having a 4.0 or above.  It  was amazing to see that 20% of the seniors were there.  Quite an achievement!

Andrew's Lego creation.  He had dental work done one day and then had to spend the day at home with me.  He was busy with his Lego's!

Spring Break

Our last weekend of spring break was a busy one! The Staats arrived on Friday and shortly after headed up to the pool for some fun. Saturday morning started bright and early with an 8:30 soccer game.

A quick stop at home and then we were off to watch Christine run the prelims for the 400 meter.

She qualified and broke 60 seconds! And she set the school record! Pretty amazing for a freshman! (That 59.39 is her time.)

She broke 60 again in the finals for a 7th place showing and her 1600 meter relay team placed 3rd. You would think after all that everyone would've been tired...not a chance!
I finally had to kick the kids off the trampoline at 11:30. We didn't want to upset any neighbors. They were all still playing Wii when the parents went to bed!

Sunday was time for hanging out with the cousins.

We all had fun and are looking forward to the next visit!

Excitement in Gilbert!

We had a hail storm! Yes-it doesn't take much to amuse us some days...
We have some cooler weather coming for the next couple of days.

Perfect Weather for a Soccer Game today!

Maggie's team won 2-1. Last time we played this team it was a tie, so the girls were happy to finally beat them!
