amp night

it was malia's 4th grade amp night (art, music & PE). last year, malia won 1st place out of her class and the entire 3rd grade for her art. this year, her bff elizabeth won 1st place in their class. it was cute though, because a lot of malia's friends kept coming up to me and telling me that malia "draws so good."

for music, the 4th graders played recorders. i couldn't tell you what song it was, but it was cute.

student of the month

micah received his first award today, student of the month. i think he was more excited to get a balloon and goodies than to get the actual award. i couldn't make it to the awards ceremony, so roel texted me a picture of him. it's a fake smile, but i'll take it. love his round face.

merida for a day

had an archery lesson with malia today. i bought it as a groupon a few months ago but couldn't use it until malia turned 9, as it was one of the rules.

she is left eye dominant and i am right, so it was cool to shoot facing each other.

it was SO much fun. she was a little discouraged at first when her arrows would hit the ground, but she got the hang of it and started hitting the target at almost every round. she even got it in the yellow 3 times.
