pictures and more.....
It has been a busy few weeks here in the Guatemamatwo house. Alex had some really neat things going on at school. The week after the Mother's Day Tea was the first grade sharing program. It was a 30 min show that was so wonderful. All the kids sang and danced complete with props. All the kids came to the microphone and spoke about what they wanted to do this summer. Let's just say that I cried. The picture of Alex and I is right after the show. This past week was the first grade zoo. All the kids have been researching animals complete with reports and the wonderful zoo set up on the school lawn. As you can see Alex was a tiger. They had large red buttons to press on the posters when you wanted to learn animal facts. Imagine 100 such cute ones and you get the idea. Last week was also Alex's first crossover ceremony with Cub scouts. He is officially working on his wolf rank and will be considered a 2nd grader for the summer activities. Anika is doing great and we have been spending some time at our wonderful park and the children's garden.
Only 7 more days of first grade for Alex. This week is the class picnic. That should be a riot. 100 first graders and their families. Hopefully I can get some pictures while chasing Anika among the melee!!
