legoland field trip

micah was fortunate to have a field trip to legoland. they said that kinders never get the legoland field trip. so he was VERY excited, and asked me to come.

his first time on the big kid cars. he was a little reluctant to go, but went because his class did. then he loved it.

i don't know if you call this one a ride, it's kinda like a race, but you have to pump these levers up and down to get the fire truck moving to go put out the fire. anyway, it was just me and the 3 kids, so i pretty much had to do the work. i was exhausted afterward. but they had fun.

love this one of the kids on the slide. micah was screaming as he went down.

this was the group another mom and i were in charge of: chris, kennedy, cjaine, and micah. cjaine kept running off and didn't respond to her name at times. it was just like going with malia =).

it's fun and difficult at the same time to be a volunteer on these field trips. i've said it a million times - i really don't know how these teachers are with these kids every day, they really do not get paid enough.

day of the child

day of the child at memorial park in chula vista. we mainly go because malia's school choir performs.

first stop is always fuddruckers because it's right there. or as micah calls it, "friesruckers". gee, i wonder why.

they always have cool activites like arts and crafts and obstacle courses. my favorite things are the free things of course. i got free night lights and food.

discovery center booth. they usually have and owl and a snake. kids always like touching the snake. scary. i think it's trying to smell micah's face, yikes!

malia's school choir performance. they sang about 5 songs. malia is front and center because she is so tiny. she's gotten a lot better with her stage presence, but towards the end of the performance, her emotions are clear by the expression on her face. she got real hot in this one and was fanning herself with her hand by the end. i don't blame her though, they are wearing wool sweaters in the heat.

i'm sure we'll be back every year if she's still in choir. maybe micah will join choir and will be up there next year too. he's taken an interest in singing lately. (it's a miracle.) now if we could only get him to dance more in front of people.

it was my micah's turn for student of the week. funny how he still wants to be a soldier when he grows up. of course his favorite food is fries. love my silly boy.
