Halloween 2017

I was stuck in training at my new job, so I didn’t get to attend the Halloween parade this year at Turtleback. Luckily, Aliciana was on hand to take pictures of all the kids and their teachers dressed up.

Our boys looked cute dressed up as Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, two of their favorite MLB stars.

Character Counts

Every other year, the “Life Lessons Character Counts” after-school program is taught by Turtleback’s own ninja kindergarten teachers, Mrs Flinn and Mrs Stamp. Gavin has now completed the program three times, but this was Connor’s first time graduating from the program. Both boys had a blast!

Maker Faire SD 2017

Lots of robots, including a giant fire-breathing one, and 3D printers were the highlights of this year’s Maker Faire. The boys had lots of fun looking at all the displays and making some hands on crafts.


Remember Me Thursday

The therapy dogs from Helen Woodward Animal Center visited the first graders on Remember Me Thursday, a day aimed at raising awareness about orphaned animals and pet adoption. Aliciana was on hand to take some photos of the kids and their furry visitors.
