Fire Station #1 Tour 10-7-2014

Our local fire stations give free tours to groups of all sizes. They show where the firefighters sleep, eat, lounge, and work. The kids got to get into the fire truck and they were shown what everything was all over the truck. The firefighters showed the kids what they would look like all geared up to show them that firefighters might look scary but they are there to help.

Pretzel Making 9-25-2014

Cody loves to help in the kitchen, especially baking, so we try to bake something about once a week. He is reading well enough to follow the directions in simple recipes and can do most all of the measuring. I set the oven temperature, help set the pretzels in the oven and taking them out.

Jump Mania Fridays (September-December 2014)

We LOVE Jump Mania Fridays! We have been trying to go every Friday this year for another P.E credit hour. He loves it and usually will jump for 1.5-2 hours each time. Our membership is about to run out so we will have to decide if we want to get a new one or see what SkyZone has to offer. SkyZone is opening a new place right next door to Jump Mania and from what I understand it is geared towards older kids and adults. We will have to check them out when they open later in December. 

Pinewood Derby Truck Build (October 2014)

Cody and Daddy built a Pinewood Derby car one day when I was away. Cody had a good time spending quality time with dad and building the car. He was so proud of himself when he was done :)
