Spring updates - March / April

I can't believe there are only 5 weeks left of school!!!  Where has this year gone???  We have much to do before the end of the school year, and we are anxiously waiting for our annual trip back to the states!  We can't wait to catch up with friends and family in both Houston and St Louis this year!!

But before I get ahead of myself, I better post updates from the last couple of months ...

Back in March, I went with Jaden on his class field trip to the Museum of Islamic Art.  I think they enjoyed the playground more than the museum, but the school did a great job giving them a mission at the museum.  They had to search for shapes and patterns in the art.  They even got to use iPods to take pictures of their favorites. 

Silly faces!


Then in April, I was invited to Nicholas' music class for a little demonstration of what they learn in music class.  It was super cute!  The kids love having us there!

And randomly Jaden and Nicholas got into setting up and knocking over dominos this month.  You should check out some of the amazing creations on youtube!!  The boys were inspired!!  This was Jaden's first creation... a lesson in patience.

A successful run!
We also took the boys to see Annie.  They loved the show and especially loved that their vice-principal played Rooster.  After watching the show, we rented the movie too!  So fun!  I love musicals!!!

Our soccer season ended back in March, but the boys continue to play as often as possible.  It's become our new routine when they get off the bus ... we go straight to the park and play soccer with friends and have our snack before heading home.  I'm rather impressed we all still go even though the heat has really picked up lately.  I'm sure it's near or over 100 every day.
