Last week of School-

  Lily and Paris on their last school field trip of 3rd grade.
3rd grade Egg drop.  Paris and her group made this contraption (in Paris' hands) to try to protect their egg when it was dropped off the library roof by the science teacher. Unfortunately they were not one of the finalists, but it was still exciting.
Mrs. Walker dropping an egg.

Paris' Brownie troop prepared this wall for the school to make a hand print flower mural.  Every student in the school put one hand print on to make a long wall full of colorful flowers.  This was Mason's turn-
... and here he is standing by the finished product.
Last day of kindergarten (right middle) was a lot happier than the first.
And the final hug with Ms. Unland- whom thankfully (and obviously with his big smile) he came full circle with.

Last day of school tradition- splurge at Powell's candy shop.
Paris and Amelia on their first day of summer excursion to the creek.
They were absolutely thrilled to find and rescue this baby bird.  He had fallen into the creek and couldn't get out.  The girls pulled him out, held him until he stopped shivering and was dry, then released him to a safe area near where they found him.  It was very sweet:)

Letting loose on the trampoline.
Yesterday, Paris finished phase one of her braces!!  She will wear retainers now until we know if/when she starts phase two.

Today we went to Paul's softball game.  Now that Alex is way into baseball, he couldn't take his eyes of any play.  He was impressed with his dad's fielding and hitting:)
And Mason fully impressed the men by scaling the fence to retrieve a ball for them.

Alex's All-Stars game.  First time ever pitching... very stressful for me, but Alex did great and loved it. Pitching in his Orioles #19 uniform:)

They won their second game and came in 3rd place in the tournament.
All- Star team- Alex is back row on left.

I was just going to say how cute Paris looked with her braces..but she looks even cuter without! (her smile looks great :)
Alex looks like such a natural on the baseball field. The kids look very happy to be on vacation, can't wait to see you guys!
