The Last Hurrahs!

Well the kids are winding down their school year.  They have, including today, 3 1/2 days left of school.  So crazy!  There have been lots of field trips, park trips, etc. going on these past couple of weeks.

Just this week Miles had a field trip to a park - with many activities and stations all about water.  Miles also had a "wax museum" event one night.  Jonas went to Ridgway State Park and will go to the park today.  Emmy went to the park yesterday and got pizza for lunch.  I think they've all had their special root-beer float day at their school's library.  So it's been busy!

Here are a few pictures I've gotten this week:
Here is Jonas playing some water-relay at Ridgway.

Here you can see Lucy and Jonas playing a game of tag - prey and predator tag.  The predators wore orange flags and tried to get the yellow (rabbits) and black (mice) flags.

Lunch time with Ivan.  Patty - Ivan's mom - is hiding behind Ivan.  :)

Lovely Lucy.

Our little group that we took on a "hike."  It was pretty there!

Proof that Lucy still needs a nap - because this is what happens when she doesn't get her scheduled one.  :)

Miles at his grade's "wax museum."  Live wax museum.  :)  The kids all studied and researched some famous Coloradans.   He chose Daniel Cheeseman Oakes.  I'm not sure why?!  But the man was a business man and opened up the first sawmill in Denver, among other things.  The kids dressed up and then parents walked around - the kids would then tell a little about their characters.

Miles with his fellow classmate Mackie, aka Chipeta.  I think Miles is the shortest boy in his grade and Mackie the tallest girl - well, probably tallest overall!

Miles with another fellow classmate, John, aka John Elway.

Next week the kids go Monday, Tuesday (field day) and then their last day is a 1/2 day on Wednesday.  Wowzers.
