Shark River Field Trip

On Tuesday the third grade went on their field trip to Shark River. Parents were encouraged to go on the trip to help the students so I took a personal day from work to go. It was a fun trip. The first thing we did was help the students build screens to put in the water to sift through the dirt. We then went into the Shark River to look for fossils and shark teeth. Brandon was one of three kids on the trip that found a shark tooth!

Bring Your Kid To Work

April 27th was bring your kid to work day. Brandon and Wesley both came with me. Wesley fit in perfectly since I teach kindergarten and he is in kindergarten. He made friends with lots of my students and still asks me daily when he can see them again. Brandon enjoyed being there too.

No More Braces

Brandon's braces are least for now. He will get a second stage of braces in a few years once he loses more teeth and they grow back in. His braces made a huge difference and his teeth look great. He now has a retainer that needs to be worn 12 hours a day. He has been really good about wearing it so far.

Mother's Day

On Mother's Day we went to Great Adventure. It was bring a friend for free day so Stu got to come for free with us. Brandon was so excited because he got to go on El Toro. After Great Adventure we came back here. All grandparents came over for a barbeque. It was a very nice day.

Wesley got to play catcher in one of his baseball games last week for an inning. He really enjoyed it a lot.

Wesley is playing baseball this year. He is on the Colt Giants. It is coach pitch. He tells me that he doesn't like it and gives me a hard time getting to the games a lot of the time but once he is there he enjoys it and says he had fun. So I am not sure he will play again next year. Here he is before his first game.
