Traditionally the local fourth graders go to some kind of history event at a local farm. Booths are set up, hands on activities and come rain, snow, or shine the kids go out and ‘experience history.’
It was Superman’s turn to go this year and he had a blast. I performed my usual chapperoning duties so I didn’t really have much time to catch many pictures.
His three favorite events from the day were probably the chariots…
Getting to see real armor…
And somehow talking me into buying him a couple sticks of rock candy.
A daddy and son outing that he really appreciated. (I enjoyed it too.)
The littles got a themed day!
Of course they’re going to do something.
Next themed day?
As you can tell, the littles didn’t have a themed day really, but they still wanted to get in on the picture taking action.
(And yes, she knows that she dressed more ‘geek’.)
Visiting the dentist, with five kids, is an ordeal. Not a bad ordeal, just an ordeal.
Get them all situated and checked…
Make sure everything is coming in just as it’s supposed to.
And perhaps do some inspecting of siblings.
Yes, even the teens are subjected to the same day. It’s just more efficient.
Happy to report that yet again, we’re cavity free. 100% success rate so far.
Time to go buy candy!
As school was starting and summer was ending our town has a “crafts days” festival.
Parade, booths at the park, etc.
The favorite is always the lawnmower pulling a ‘train’.
Yes, you read that title correctly.
Thunderer also started school this year.
Still school though.
She was very excited to be going.
The littles were sure to surround her and cuddle her extra at the bus stop.
Now, just because they were ready to go…
Doesn’t mean they weren’t thrilled to be home at the end of the day.
It’s good to be home.
School has certainly started again.
But they’ve adjusted well.
They were ready to go back.
It was hard for Thunderer to not photobomb them while these solo pictures were being taken. Couldn’t really hold her back when it was time for the elementary schoolers’ group picture.
She also wanted to pose real quick with her doll.
Fourth grade now for Superman.
Still sweet, still quiet, still super excited for super heroes.
Proud of this little guy.
