May and Stuff

5/2
She chose Rachel as her favorite person to write about in class.

5/3
He was quietly hiding behind our front yard bushes while I was crazily looking for him.



5/3
Scoping out Ribera Beach for a future photo location.
Sarah likes when I take attractive pictures of her like this...

...and this:
But after Ribera Beach we drove all over Carmel Valley looking for weeds to chop down.
Sarah is making a giant hanging of sorts for Tes's woodland fairy birthday party.

He slept through the whole weed-chopping escapade.



5/4
Sally's class got to go on an awesome field trip to SLEWTHS.
(Science Learning and Exploration with the Help of Sea Lions)
They care for rescued sea lions who wouldn't otherwise survive in the wild.
Everyone got a kiss (including me) and the kids got to do tricks with them.
Videos below.

5/7
Drew spent a Saturday afternoon hiking and outdoor cooking with the scouts.
Amy (in green) is the most amazing Cub Scout Master.
She just moved away...sad day.
5/8
Mother's Day

5/15
Drew had the whole primary dabbing to "Do As I'm Doing."
Really wished I could've stopped playing the piano to film.

5/17
Not much better than a warm day, french fries, and the beach.
Sorry kids who were at school.


5/17
Baseball season ended for both boys, but I only took pictures at Drew's last game.
Both teams were eliminated first round in play-offs.
It was a bummer!
I get depressed when baseball is over every year.

5/20
Volunteered for a couple hours at Falcon Fest.
I got assigned the potato sack race station.

with Kenzi

4th graders in the sand box.

These 3 karaoke'd to "Head Shoulders Knees and Toes."

5/20
How the boys did fathers and sons.
(hotel, swimming, Dave & Busters)
Sally and I went shopping and to a movie (Angry Birds).

5/21
Drew's team party at Mountain Mike's.

5/23
Spied on the front porch.



5/24
Drew chose to be Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, for wax museum day.
I tried to talk him out of such an unrecognizable character, but was glad he insisted.
The dude is actually pretty interesting and that balloon saved the day.
And we now know that balloons are NOT allowed at school.

5/24
Spied out front.



5/25
Sally's first piano recital.
She played, "In Summer" from Frozen.

5/26
He is obsessed with moths and picks them up by the wings whenever they're resting on our house.

5/26
We received a fun package in the mail from a friend in Austria.
Auggie is obsessed with those weird egg-opening videos on YouTube.
These chocolate eggs made his day.
And the hazelnut wafers made mine.


5/26
Sally and friends did a glass fusion art class.

5/27
Last day of school.
This year FLEW.


Not sure it's possible to top Ms. D as a teacher.
Sally had the best year in her "Sea Otter Sanctuary."

Drew started off the year not wanting to be in Mrs. Serpa's class, but the year got much better.
I think I even saw a tear in his eye before taking this picture.

5/27
How we have to eat ice cream in Monterey (by the heater).

5/28
Barbecue and water balloon fight at the Brown's.

5/30
Memorial Day spent at the park...

 ...and the beach.
