Little Artist

She must get it from her mamma.  Allie was chosen by Mrs. Takata, her art teacher, to have her raccoon art in the WB art show.  What an honor!

Preschool Concert

Tonight was Ayden's last concert as a preschooler...how adorable was he?!?  Ayden stood in the front row and chose only a couple of songs to sing to.  He belted out "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" but just smiled nervously for a few other songs.  Ayden was very well behaved on stage...and oh so cute.
 

 
 
 
 
We all sang the last song together in the audience...Driving In My Car...a new favorite for Ayden!

Diving Daisies

The Diving Daisies have been meeting and working very hard on their Lego League Challenge this year.  Allie's team was made up of 3 Daisy Girl Scouts.  This year the girls learned all about the journey of water...where water comes from and how it gets to us.  These Daisies learned about how water is cleaned and treated.  They built a water pump and decided their water use would be a WATERPARK!  The water traveled from the lake, through the water treatment center, to the pump and into the water tower until it was ready to use in the water park.  They made their waterpark better by adding motion sensors to the water features in order to save water. This year they had TWO moving parts...the sprinkler and the water pump.
 



 
 
Great job, Diving Daisies!!!

Science Fair


What a DEER...Allie research, observed and learned all bout deer for the Science Fair this year.  She learned about how to make her school safe for deer, but specifically she spoke about how deer act and behave.  She did amazing speaking aloud in front of her audience.

Maple Surgaring

While Todd's away...we will play...up at Tollgate Farms for their Maple Sugaring event.  We rode on a tractor out to the forest to see all the trees tapped and the sap flowing out.  We went in the sugar shack to see how the maple sugar was made and even got to try some on yummy popcorn.  The kiddos tapped a tree by drilling a hole and we even saw some friends along the way.

First Grade Concert

Adorable, sweet and too cute.  First grade winter concert was a hit.  Allie sang and danced to HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT CHOCOLATE from the Polar Express.  One of our favorite winter movies and songs...and her favorite morning beverage, or course.  It was the perfect song for our Allie Girl.

Tip Up Town

Michigan winters are not complete without ice, snow and Tip Up Town.  All four kiddos loved the fair at Houghton Lake and the parents spent lots of relaxing time catching up.  Too bad we had to leave Saturday night in order to make a 9:00 am cheer practice on Sunday...sacrifices.

Love you, Aders!
