Best Potential Runner

We attended Anna's awards banquet for her track team. Among other awards, she received the "Best Potential Runner" out of more than 100 teammates. It was such a well-deserved reward, and a proud moment in time, one I won't soon forget.

Firefighter Classroom Visit

Earlier in the month my second grade class had the privilege to listen to classmate Alijah's dad speak about his job as a firefighter. He even brought his complete uniform and gear and let the kids try on his jacket and helmet. The complete uniform weighs more than 50 pounds! His 45-minute visit went by so quickly, the kids were engaged and it inspired more than a few students to declare they wanted to become a firefighter when they grow up.

Sam's 7th Birthday

We celebrated Sam's birthday mid-morning on his special day. It was a Star Wars, Lego, and Ugly Doll themed party. Yumi picked up special balloons and Rob made a lego cake. Each of the three blocks had a different color frosting as well as a different flavor cake inside. Being the architect that he is, Rob's cake had perfect dimensions. Sam really enjoyed his day and loved all his presents. Thank you so much!
