recent activities

Last week Friday, Grace had a field trip to a pumpkin patch.

Last Saturday our school participated in a Marathon for non-public education. There were three possible events - walking, running, and biking. Hubby, Grace and Light walked. I volunteered as a photographer and was assigned the bike group.

The school has a Silent Auction fund raiser in November. I am doing a photo book for Grace's class and for one of the fifth grade classes. The teacher for that class doesn't have a parent representative.

For Grace's class I am organizing the book around the theme "If Your Happy and You Know It" - the verses shown here are clap your hands, stomp your feet, make a funny face, and run around a tree. I haven't worked up today's which are shout amen and lick a tootsie pop and I still have to take more tomorrow.

For the fifth grade the theme is Sven and Ole jokes as the teacher begins each day with a Sven and Ole joke. The kids will share their favorite jokes and I will photograph them in pairs as either Sven, Ole, or Lena.

  2. The books are a great idea!

  3. Wow. What a great idea!

  4. That little tongue is net. Kids are so bendable!

  6. Sven and Ole are my favorite. Most people out here haven't heard of them.

    Really great pictures for the book.

    BTW, I always jokingly refer to those vehicles as the Cadillac and Ford Excessive. ;)
