The Go Fast Button

As promised, here are some pictures from my awesome field trip earlier this month. My school took us to a private hanger so we could see some airplanes. We have been learning about airplanes in school.

Mommy and Daddy both came on the field trip with me. They were more excited than I was. Actually, I was quite tired that day. At first Mommy was annoyed because we were told there would be possible delays getting to the airport because the President was in town. But when we got to the hanger, we got a huge surprise. Some Marines and one of the President's support helicopters was in the hanger. The pilot told us the helicopter could be Marine 1. We got to see it and meet the pilots. Outside the hanger we could see the huge supply plane that brought in the President's limo.

We also got to see some private planes, and go to the mechanic shop to see some being repaired.Mechanic Greg even let us sit in one of the planes! He was so nice to us all.

At the end of the tour they told us to hurry outside so we could watch the President's plane take off. It was really neat.

Over the weekend I saw my first play (Hansel and Gretal) and we attended the Jaycees banquet (at a fancy eat place). Us kids did get a bit wild at the end. It's all good though. We had the eat place to ourselves. We even played in the bathroom. Mommy totally cracked up when the bathroom door flew open and revealed Brendan and I wrestling and Trent unrolling toilet paper. Too bad her camera wasn't ready to capture that! Silly her cleaned up first and then took a picture.

Wow - we watched Air Force One take off.

The hanger manager showed us airplanes.

Bathroom party!

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
