School Fun

We've participated in a few school activities lately.   The girls and Elden each had more field trips that aren't documented here, as I didn't go on them.  But to document what we've been up to on the school end:

Cal's Spring Concert.  It was a fun concert where the fifth graders played xylophones.  They had each piece memorized too.

I didn't even think about Cal dressing up!  Lee got the memo though....

I went with the girls to Carter Mountain for a learning field trip that was all about soil: composting, absorption and chemical make-up.

Carter Mountain is an apple orchard.  They treated us to apple donuts, apple cider (thanks to our field trip fee!) and a wagon ride through the orchard.

My random photo: I sent some fun packages!  There are a lot of birthdays in May!

As you probably know I go to the school once a week and make copies for several teachers.  I really enjoy helps that I know the copy machine so well now!  This particular time I changed the toner.  Very easy.

Some of the teachers gave me some fun gifts for volunteering this year.  They are so thoughtful!

I am getting close to 150 hours of volunteering this year!

One of the gifts from a teacher was a giftcard to a local restaurant.  Lee and I had fun using it one day for lunch.  Yum, love calzones.

I snuck in one more field trip with Elden.  I could have gone on the last one, but just didn't want to.  They went to a trampoline place that our family recently went to. Hopefully Elden didn't mind too much! Anyway, the field trip we went on was to the JMU Planetarium.  It's a pretty cool presentation and sometime it would be fun to attend their star gazing activities in the evenings.
