Co-op Open House

The K-2nd graders and 3-5th graders took Texas History this year so our end of the year co-op was Cowboy food themed. We had cornbread, pinto beans, cobbler and the kids churned butter. Nadia made a blackberry cobbler that was gone as fast as lightning so she was very proud. It was a sweet night with lots of visitors to see all the stuff that the kids learned this year.

This is a sample of the artwork my class did over the course of the year! I am so proud of their hard work. They were just the most fun kids.

 

A day in Dallas

Amelie was due for her yearly hands and feet check up at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital so the girls and I packed up and headed for Dallas. Amelie got the all clear for another year which was a great relief. It doesn’t look like the toenails they removed are growing back so that is good news. Once we were finished we headed over to redeem a gift for a free dozen cookies from Paradise Bakery. YUM!

Popcorn is the best part of Scottish Rite.

Then we headed for the Dallas Children’s Aquarium. There were quite a few school groups in there, but we still worked our way around the place. Dani couldn’t wait to go see the stingrays, but they weren’t starting the feeding until noon and I wanted to just spend the end of our time there. This time I remembered to bring extra shirts for the girls to change into since they get splashed.

Nadia and Dani fed the stingrays the little pieces of shrimp that they sell. Amelie wanted no part of it because it creeped her out the last time. She just wanted to pet the sting rays as they swam past.

Stockyards Field Trip

In mid-February Nadia and Amelie went with their Texas History co-op classes to a field trip of the Fort Worth Stockyards. They had an awesome time and here are some of the photos from people who were there.

Nadia and Amelie loved this maze so much! They talked about it for days and how cool it was. Thanks to my friend Marti for organizing this fun day for the kids!
