April 2014

We were lucky to have grandma nae here for Easter this year. 

 Paul also had his musical program where he played the xylophone.  He was great, and we are sad that Mr. Chandler, the music teacher, is leaving Valley Ridge.

Field trip!

One of the best parts of my job is that it is pretty flexible, so I can go on field trips with Paul.  This year they went to the outdoor learning area.  It was really fun and a nice day weather wise.
 Paul and Luke - they have been in the same class for 2 years now.
Writing in his journal. 
 Tzuriel and Paul ended up in the same class this year - even though they are in different primary classes at church
 Silly boy
 Spider web game, standing next to Ava and trying to confuse the spider in the middle.
Love this kid!

It's always fun when grandma comes....

My mom got a plane ticket to our house for her birthday this year, and we had a great time!  We headed down to Austin, and stayed in a hotel for a couple of days.  One of the days we went to the capital building, and took the tour.

Standing in front of a statue of Sam Houston  we found some of the lights have the 
star with Texas spelled out in lights

We walked around downtown Austin for a bit and looked around


Paul got a new hat at Five Below.   Paul is so lucky to have a grandma that will do anything for him - even play hot wheels for hours! 
Sadly, grandma had to go home, but we had time to go have a picnic at Paul's school on her last day. Thanks grandma!

Vroom! Vroom!

My friend Tiffany gave us tickets to a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway.  Since we had four tickets Paul got to invite his best friend to come with us.
 Flyover before the race started

Watching the cars - preliminary laps.  We thought it was loud then, then they started to go FAST!  Then it was LOUD!

 It was so fun!  It made me wonder a little bit what we would do if we had a girl kid instead of a boyo..
We bought both boys a race car and after they watched the race for a little bit, they played on the bench.  When there was a crash, they would pop up and watch until the urge to race their own cars was too strong! 
The race was sponsored by Duck Dynasty so there were poster all over the place with Uncle Si.  We couldn't resist!
