You've got a friend in me...

Hello Everyone!
Oh my, I am blogging two days in a row.  Oh yeah!  

Well I wanted to share our day.  
Today was Friendship Day in Camp Learned A Lot.  So I had the kids bring in a cup of cereal and we made friendship stew.  We talked about how we are all different just like our cereal but when we come together we make an awesome combination.  The kiddos were a little hesitant at first mixing up the different cereals.

After the mixing it this is what it looked like.  They still were a little hesitant.  So I explained that sometimes we don't know what we might like if we don't try it.  So they decided they were going to be brave and try it and let me tell you, they loved it! They wouldn't stop eating it.

These are my kiddos during read to someone enjoying their friendship stew.  
This is my student during read to someone.

I had to stop them from taking the cereal in the tent but they didn't mind.  Look how cozy the look.
After enjoying our stew we wrote a how to piece on how to make it.  

Today we sent home out camp postcards.  Check out a few.

This kiddo drew the class doing our relay races outside.  He said it was his favorite part of camp so far.
This kiddos favorite part was going in the tent.

On a personal note, we recently put cement in our backyard and now we are getting it ready for summer.  We took our pool out of storage.  Yes, I don't have a fancy pool but it works perfect for our family since I can put it away in winter and enjoy our space.  My backyard isn't huge but if you live in Las Vegas it is a pretty good size.  This is one side of the backyard and on the other side we are planning to put in grass.  We have not enjoyed our backyard as much as we have in the past week and we have lived in this house for 2 years.  The problem before was that there was only dirt back here and let me tell you as much as my son loved to play in the dirt I did not like it being tracked in the house.  

Ok I am off to do my insanity!  Gotta keep motivated.   
5 more days of school not that Im counting!
