Day 332

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!

Day 328

School break....
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.

Last and First.....
Cody's final soccer game of the season was today.  The were not able to pull out a win, losing 0-3, but played really well. Proud of how he kept pushing and made some great plays during the game. 

Tyler's first gym meet was this evening and he did great!

Day 321

Discovery Museum....
We went to a Planetarium Show today at the Discovery Museum.  Very cool to see with the exception of the guy that kept looking at his phone and then taking pictures of the slide show.  VERY Distracting!  
We'll have to go back for one of their other shows.

Day 318

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.

Day 317

Another one gone....
Ty lost another one of his bottom teeth tonight.  
The middle, top tooth is pretty loose as well.  He has a nice Jack-O-Latern going for sure.

Day 312

Another Saturday.....
Another Soccer Saturday in the books, still not a win though.  
Cody is still making good plays and still needs to learn to dig deeper when he's tired and the games almost over, but he's still chugging along with a good attitude.

Day 310

Teacher Day.....
Every 20 school days or so our teacher comes to check in on us and usually the boys make some kind of presentation.  Tyler did a book report this month with character pictures and a recommendation.

Day 309

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.

Day 306

Soda Stream.....
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!

Day 305

Soccer Saturday....
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. 
0-4 loss, 3 games left.
