Ty's field trip to Red Lobster

Yes, preschoolers enjoy field trips to such exotic and educational locations as Red Lobster. They got to "pet" a lobster, then put on hair nets and gloves (which they wore for about 1/2 an hour before they entered the kitchen, and about 1 hour before they helped make biscuits, so I'm sure their hands were cleaner because they were protected by the now dirty gloves, but whatever...) and got a tour of the kitchen and got to color, and help make biscuits, then got to eat some biscuits with lemonade. Luckily, I don't think anyone ever actually ate the ones they made. The ones served were nice perfect mounds of biscuit; definitely not the misshapen masses the preschoolers were so proud of.

Preston's 8th Birthday

We always try to celebrate our kids' birthdays ON their birthday, and they always get to pick what they want for dinner, and it's usually just our immediate family with grandparents, great grandma Beverly and usually Uncle Chris (and of course Natalie now too). Just the family who live in town. Then they have a "friends" party the weekend before or after. And this year Preston gets an extra special party with about 30 close friends and family members invited to a dinner and "party" after his baptism on the 7th of February. 8 is definitely a special birthday!

Madison's Science Award

Madison got an award at school today for highest average percentage in her Science Class. She's so smart! She's in advanced English, geometry (which is advanced math for 8th grade) and Spanish as well as the regular 8th grade history and PE, and she's got a 4.o. She's had 4.0 for her first 3 semesters of Junior High, so just 1 more semester to go until she can get Valedictorian at graduation. And she's cute too!
