School Awards

J earned the coveted "Coyote of the Month" at school Friday. Only 1 student per class is picked each month. This is what his teacher said about J: "J is a hard worker in our classroom. He also knows how to treat others with respect. He is caring and enjoys helping others. He loves to participate in class and strives to always have good grades." We are so proud of him!!

T earned one of the Character Counts awards for his class. This month "caring" was the character trait. This MADE HIS DAY!! This is what his wonderful teacher said about T: "T is a sensitive, caring person that treats others kindly. He is always volunteering to help others in class and on the playground. In class, he makes a great Bumblebee and takes this responsibility very seriously. On the playground, he is always earning HOWL tickets for helping pick up playground equipment and cleaning the cafeteria. T is such a delightful boy and I am so thrilled to have him in our class!"

We are so proud of both of our boys!!

Bear Award

J finally earned and received his BEAR award & his Religious Square Knot. Of course, when I want to take a nice picture of him and his awards, his slide is no where to be found ... hence the chunky rubber band holding his neckerchief! He's worked hard on many requirements, and has loved his Leaders. He looks forward to being in the Webelos den come January.

Hoover Dam

The wind was filling up N's hoodie while he looked over the Hoover Dam

The tradition says that you will have luck by rubbing the feet of the Lady Statue

My sweet J
N enjoying the view at Hoover Dam

We spent the Thanksgiving Holiday in North Las Vegas with G's side of the family. We took the boys for an outing to the Hoover Dam and the new Memorial Bridge. It was VERY windy, but otherwise a beautiful day. The Hoover Dam is in both Nevada and Arizona. We had fun walking across states and time zones! We loved the view and spending time together. After we walked across the dam, we went over to the Memorial Bridge, which just recently opened. I'll have to blog about that next.
