Kindergarten Valentine’s Day Party

I was lucky enough to get to take in the crafting chaos during Connor’s Valentine’s Day party, before having to head to work. The kiddos spread around a lot of love.

Gavin Wins A Responsibility Award

Roughly once a month Turtleback gives out special awards to students from each class who represent the “Character Pillars” they try to teach the children. This month’s pillar was “Responsibility” and Gavin won the award for his class! At a school wide morning assembly he got to pick up his award in front of all his peers.

Building At Home Depot

Every month the local Home Depot puts on a free kids workshop to build a project. This was the first one we had attended and the boys got to build toolboxes. Connor especially enjoys building but both boys had a good time hammering and painting.

The Zoo

We met Aliciana’s sister Kristel and all her monkeys at the zoo. Their cousin Xavi was in town, so they decided to show him the world famous animals.

The highlight of the trip was the baby hippo, who was swimming circles with her mom. Connor busted up when the baby kept trying to bite her mom’s butt.

After Christmas Legoland

We made a trip to Legoland so the boys could enjoy some special Christmas holiday events going on. They colored some Christmas tree ornaments and did a scavenger hunt to earn a few holiday pop badges.
