Tidbits

1. Our CC group still meets every Tuesday for a park day or field trip (and is expanding beyond our CC group to include lots of other moms who enjoy getting out with their kids and friends). Here are Andrea and Sara with their adorable little-ests, and the crew.

2. Our last field trip was a tour of the Colville Fish Hatchery (where Andrea, pictured above in yellow, actually grew up since her Dad was the manager for 20 years). The Hatchery is mostly run by high school students, under the management of one adult. Students learn to run the hatchery, make their own fishing poles, stuff their own quail (taxidermy), and other skills. Homeschool kids are welcome in the program, too, so I guess we’ll see if any of the boys get interested someday.

4. Second annual Awana Grand Prix. We didn’t win this year, but Daddy watched a YouTube video on how to make the fastest derby cars, so maybe next year.

5. Our new neighbors found an old treasure map left by prospectors centuries ago and invited the kids to help them solve the clues and find the treasure! Yeah!

7. Sarah, Avery and Zack invited us to go swimming at the Benny’s pool in town, and then Avery found this adorable little creature in her locker.

8. We drove north and found a fun lake on Mother’s Day. Water bugs and butterflies!

9. Josh is really determined to finish his math book since he’s nearing the end and there’s a prize. He’s been doing it in odd places throughout the day.

10. Ethan has plans for a secret band of children who have an underground headquarters where they monitor radio announcements of crimes being committed and train in archery and other secret skills so they can stop bad guys. Here is one of his messenger balloons.

11. We had to get the oil changed the other day so we took the wagon with us to town and enjoyed the half-mile walk to the library.
