This is his first year of tackle. He played 2 years flag before now though.

Baylor Beach 2009

Friday was the prettiest weather day of our vacation! We spent the day at Baylor Beach, and had a blast as always. What a nice family place that has lots of fun things to do!! :)

Isnt the sky pretty in these pictures of the lake?

This is the deeper end of the lake with diving board, big slide and bigger logroll. The boys loved the slide too.
This is the middle of the lake with smaller logroll, sprinkler, and slides.
This is the shallow side of the lake with frog kid slide, spray guns, whale, turtle,3 kid race slide, dump buckets and layout dock. I just love the purple frog slide!!

Summer Science....Betty Beetle

Drew, Tanner and Dalton did a summer Science project tonight!
They found a huge pitching beetle in our small garden, and decided to keep it, investigate and do a report on it.
They feed it crickets and made it a house out of an old hamster cage.
They spent about 3 hours watching and doing their reports. Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Hahn and Mrs. Raach ( all the other teachers too.... would be proud of them!!! =)

This is Betty the beetle!!

I'm so very proud of you guys and all the time you put into your project!!!!
