Happy 11 th Birthday, Dax!

The weekend before the actual birthday, we invited all the fellas from his fifth grade class and a few more to go Whirlyball! It was a blast and they all seemed to enjoy it immensely.  David had brilliant idea to get 2 ft foam planes as the party favor and they rocked also! For the actual 16th, we went to Top Golf for some fun and  Joe's Pizza  for dinner, topping it off with caramel popcorn balls and a sparkler "11" candle.

Miscellaneous Dax happenings Fall 2014- 5th grade

Dax won the Shining Star Award in  October for Integrity! He was very excited to have earned it due to the fact that his peers voted on it and it wasn't just based on teacher recommendation as in previous years.  As a parent, integrity is a HUGE thing to get noticed in your child especially by other children. So very happy for him!

He also participated in Safety Patrol which is a group of 5th graders who help with carline to assist kids getting out of cars and shutting doors during the morning dropoff line.  We had to get there EARLY and for the most part we did okay but we had a few mornings where we didn't quite make it before the line was officially moving. Oops!

And lastly I don't have any pictures of this really but he was chosen as an Ambassador. These kids are 4th and 5th graders chosen by administration based on an application process to represent the school when other professionals visit as well as give feedback on issues to the administration.  They had a visiting group of people come on the BYOT (bring your own technology) tour and they were interviewed. Mrs.  Hamilton,  the counselor, spoke very highly of the group and complimented them on their clarity of speech and manners.

Cubmobile 2014

The "Packard" and the Halo warthog entered the race this year!  Cole's Den won the 1st place trophy for design!  They were very happy and excited when painting, driving, and receiving the trophy!

Aubie Claus

We took the fellas to the Samford game and met up with Chris and C.  It was the first time the boys went to a Tiger Walk, and Dax got a Nick Marshall high five.

 They joined us the next day too  with A for a semi-cousin picture with Aubie Claus!  It was a fun spontaneous weekend, since Aubie announces his appearance only a week in advance!

David's Hike

While the kids were heading back to school, David went with Doug and Lex and hiked around "our mountain" (Rainier) on the Wonderland Trail .  I love seeing what hiking has become to him! He gets that gleam in his eye when he talks about hitting the woods again and I love it.  I hope that he and the boys (and Korwyn and I) can add many a wooded memory to our list of experiences in the future!
