We took a break today and went on a scouting adventure to try and find a good spot for fall pictures. We stopped by the Folsom Power House for a few and it was open for tours. The museum at the top has some fun, interactive exhibits about electricity which fit in with Cody's science lesson for the week. (Win!)
We are still on the hunt of the perfect picture spot, but have some more to try.
The gym has been working on putting in a new tumbling runway for the Tramp & Tumbling team. It's a fancy rod floor that they use in their competitions. Ty's group isn't doing anything powerful enough to get the full benefit from it yet, but it's a nice space to work on some of their moves.
Cody's soccer team has been playing against some very tough teams. He joined the team after they had been practicing for more than 2 months. I've mentioned to him that it would help his game if he built up his stamina, but it was up to him. This morning he went for a jog without anyone prompting him. It's awesome to see him making good choices.
One of our neighbors is on a trip this week and asked us to feed and play with his dog while he's away. The boys have had a good time going over and keeping her company. She's a super sweet dog, so it's not hard to enjoy our time with her.
Our new normal through November. 6 Days of sports (occasional 7th), enrichment classes, appointments and babysitting. Busy is our normal, I'm not sure we would know what to do with ourselves if it wasn't like this.
Yesterday's classes are the ones the boys go to each week.
Today they had their once a month classes up in Rescue.
Cody took an engineering class (built a rubber band rocket), Mixed media art (make a pencil holder out of a coil of paper) and LEGO Robotics (built a car and then programmed it on the computer for movements).
Tyler took a LEGO Engineering class (built a gravity and pull back car), Life Science (held and talked about all kinds of reptiles and brought home a fish that's only as wide as my thumb nail) and an Art class (painting).
Both reported that the classes were great and they were upset that they had to wait a month until the next session!
Summer is sting holding on today, reaching into the 100's and our air quality is bad due to all the fires in the area, so soccer practice has been canceled. Coach emailed with some homework, working on juggling for ball handling skills.
Cody had his first comp game today. He had a few good plays, pass and a good shot on goal but it was hot and he didn't have the stamina. No win today, but there's 10 more chances + a tournament to turn that around.
