Pinewood Derby

The boys had their first every Pinewood Derby. Neither Mike nor I have ever done a derby before and were quite clueless. We tried to google directions but we still didn't do a great job. Our poor boys! At least they looked good!

Poor Michael's kept falling off the track

The "pit"

The didn't win but they weren't the worst either.

Brother against brother. I don't even remember who won!

Annie Oak Glen Field Trip

Annie got to go on her first grade field trip despite changing schools at the end of the year. She was really excited. We went to the apple orchards at Oak Glen. They always put on a really good tour for the first graders.

Dressing like a pioneer woman.

Writing with a quill pen

Grinding corn into cornmeal.

Hanging the clean clothes after washing them on the washboard.



and a hayride!


A couple pictures from their Competitive Edge Travel Team. For this team Jake is #17, Michael is #18 and Anthony kept his lucky #7.

Jake was the student of the week for school so got to take the bear to his games.
