Third Grade

Third grader Newbie steps out.

She still looks super young in this picture. Last trimester conferences came recently and while her teacher didn’t outright say she’s one of his favorites, the praise he heaped on both her intelligence and demeanor showed she’s probably one of his favorites.

Robo Baby

Right before Christmas break our family was accosted with a robot baby.

TJ had to adopt one for the weekend for a class.

More advanced than a ‘flour bag baby’ or “egg baby” but a heck of a lot less advanced than the Batman Beyond episode with robo babies.

If you’re curiuos, he aced it. Many a sleepless night through that weekend, but he aced the project.

History Event

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.)
