Lately my oldest child has been busy. What's kept him busy? I shall tell you!

Exploring the Exploratorium (field trip today - I chaperoned! Look at our cute group!)

We left at 7:30 this morning, arrived at 11, played until 3 or so, then drove and drove and drove until we finally got home about 7:30 in the evening. Still a great trip overall, but that is a lot of time in a big bus full of excited fourth graders driving over bumpy roads.

What else?

Getting a Bear Scout award at the Blue & Gold Banquet (Woot woot S!)

Making a Gold Rush cake for the banquet 

Kept on rejecting my culinary efforts. You can't win 'em all. At least K and I got to eat what S refused.

I can't believe how old he is getting! Eight hours on a bus full of 4th graders, you are a brave woman.

Oh, to go on a field trip today. I once went with my mom's kindergarten class to the zoo, and I had to stay in bed for days after, due to exhaustion.
p.s. He is bigger than I remember him being (when I last saw him, 6 years ago). How do you account for that?

Val, he eats nothing but Kryptonite. We should be able to take on the Justice League around the time he becomes a deacon.

Valerie said...

Kryptonite. Of course. Genius.

Dana said...

That Sam... I seriously want to smooch him to bits!

Congrats on the bear! Great job on the cake, too. :D You know, when he gets married he will wonder why he wife isn't nearly the fabulous cook you are and it will drive her batty. ;)
