Are you ready for...

Mason: Tennis cover

Mason says, "You could try to use different shades of one color for anything. It's more interesting. I did my cover like the colors of a tennis court."

GC: The Football Bode

That is Bode. He is crying because he did not get the touchdown. He is not happy. Trust me, he is mad.
There is Genesis Click. He is number 68. He is in the spot!
Genesis is out of the spot. He needs to run to get the touchdown.

And he finally got the touchdown. He was proud of himself. That is his 5th touchdown of the year. He loves to get touchdowns. When he gets touchdowns he runs to his mom and dad. He is happy!

Can you guess how old Mrs. Overman is?

Mrs. O was born on May 29, 1981, so that would make her...

how old? Can you figure it out, Superkiddos?

A Day Out on the Town!

Lining up outside our school to walk around town.

See the yellow house with the green roof? DH says her aunt used to live there...and so does the ghost of someone named Maggie.

This is the lake in our town and the marina where you can get gas for your watercraft and bait for fishing.

This is the road where the Dixie Boat is.

We had a picnic at the park before we rode the Dixie boat.

The Dixie is an old boat that has given tours for many years on one of the lakes in our town. Many people have ridden it.

Look! It's Mrs. Metcalf! She used to teach music at our school for many years and now she does many other things, like help the Dixie stay afloat, in our community.

Here we are boarding the Dixie. It was unseasonably cold that day...about 50 degrees.

Lots of us stayed downstairs on the boat...it was a little warmer down there.

This is where the captain, Jody, sits to drive the boat.

This is the top floor of the boat.

After we rode the boat we walked to our town library.

This is the main street in our town. The stores on the left are called "The White Front Shops."

This is Pilcher's. There are some stores in this castle and, according to some people, tennis courts ON TOP!

A few playground pics.

AW: Page 2 of his 2nd grade book.

I like 2nd grade a lot! Now I'll show you what's really fun...we don't have homework in Mrs. Overman's class, you can hang the swings up with mulch, and chase first graders!

Wesley's Trip to Seattle

Wesley's Trip to Seattle

Every year we go to Seattle

and go to my dad's parents' house

and then go to Woodbe Island

and stay at the Jenny Farm.

If you look out the window you can see an eagle's nest.

Then we go to the beach and build driftwood forts
and then hike the bluff.

And whoever hikes the bluffs gets ice cream.

Then we go to the battery.

And then go to Fort Kasey.

And then go home!
