2nd Grade Field Trip

For Makenna's second grade field, they went to the zoo. Makenna asked me to go and be a chaperone. I love that she wants me to go and be with her. She loves riding the school bus on her field trips. There were so many parent volunteers that I only had Makenna and her friend Lexi in my group. We teamed up with her friend, Kendall, and her mom to go through the zoo. It was a cool and rainy day. Luckily it only rained for a few minutes at the beginning of the field trip. The girls had fun running through the zoo and seeing a few of the animals. I love being able to go with Kenna and friends. It is fun to see her with the other kids.

Lately --

Makenna received her first report card for second grade and we are super proud. She is reading at a 4th grade level and excelling in other areas in school. She is expanding her food choices and learning to eat more school lunches. She has been playing goalie for her soccer team and doing really well at it. She has been doing a soccer clinic which has helped a lot. She almost has her back walk over in gymnastics. Once she has it down, she can move up a level and work more on her back handsprings.

Brynlee has been learning a lot in school. Pre-K does not do report cards. I do talk to the teacher a lot though and she says Bryn could practically teach the class. She is a good listener and very helpful at school. She has been doing the soccer clinic as well and has been progressing. She almost made a goal this past Saturday. She dribbled it all the way down the field and stumbled in front of the goal. Luckily her teammate was close and kicked it in. She did great. She is learning to hang from the bar at gymnastics and is becoming stronger.

Baby Brother is super active. He kicks me like crazy. He wants to make sure he gets attention I guess. His due date is in 58 days. I can't believe it. I'm eager to meet him. He makes sleeping difficult, but he's worth it.
