Charlotte's Sasquatch Award

Way to go Charlotte on your first Sasquatch Award of the year!  (In 4th grade, you have to read 6 titles from the year's Sasquatch list.)  She's already working on her next one! 

Her picture will go up on the mountian, superimposed onto a Sasquatch body.  Holla!
Mrs. Albers was one of Charlotte's 3rd grade teachers, and this year became one of our half-time librarians. 
Charlotte's dream-come-true:  one of her favorite teachers in-charge of her favorite place in school!!!!

Disneyland 2012

We had such an awesome time in California last week.  Not only were we enjoying Disneyland, but we enjoyed it with great friends - The Bradburys, The Ledesmas and the Schultzes.  AND Grannie even came with us!  I think what made it so fun was that the kids were all big enough for (almost) every ride - and they (Sam) were SO BRAVE!!  Here are a few of the highlights...

Sam's Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

Do you feel as though you just saw this post?  Yeah, me too.  Except what you actually saw was Jane's Pumpkin Patch Field Trip at the same Schilter Family Farm.  One week later, I was able to chaperone Sam's first ever field trip, and we had a great time!  Here are some of the pictures.  What you can't see, is that Sam is much harder to capture on film than Janey-the-poser.  So here are a couple of the best shots.  Love me some Sammers!

Fun on the hayride out to the patch.  "Yea!"

Giving the farmer thumbs up for driving the tractor on our hayride.

Sam with his good buddy, Taylor.  Double trouble, if I've ever seen it.
