Grandpa Scollay has been hard at work, trying to figure out how to make a mushroom for Ty to practice on at home. After a few ideas and lots of research online, he made it happen. We need to to a bit of finishing work as it is sitting in the living room, but it's very functional!
Cody is going to play Futsal this winter, a version of indoor soccer. The rules area bit different, so we met with coach and a few other friends to play at the school and start learning the game a bit.
We had a play date today with old friends. After hanging out and eating lunch we took a walk down to the river where we were greeted with a lot of dead fish that didn't make it all the way to the spawning grounds. It was pretty gross, but very educational.
It's time for the salmon to run up the ladder so we went to the hatchery to check it out today. We were able to see a lot of fish in the top holding tank, but had missed the open ladder for the day. It was fun to walk down the trail and see all the fish in the river. Check it out, it's peaceful and fascinating.
Cody chose to research Mission Santa Cruz for history this month. Spent a good amount of time replicating the building and making a fountain. It wouldn't have been the best scoring project ever known, but his teacher (aka, Mom) was happy that he put it all together. He did a nice job on his report and our teacher was impressed with his presentation.
We've been selected for another awesome House Party, this time for Soda Stream soda maker. The party will be in a couple of week, but it arrived so we have been testing out some of the sample flavors that came with it. The boys are stoked!
Cody had a decent game today. He made some good defensive plays and showed some skills while trying to move the ball towards their goal. He had some points where he wasn't quite in the game though, needing to work on stamina and consistency.
