The Greatest Show on Earth?

We went to the circus. I have pictures. It was opening night and half-price tickets. We sat way up high but were able to see the whole arena. The kids had a great time of course. I remember it being much more spectacular in the past. We had a fun MARTA trip with all the cheerleaders in town. There was a competition of some sort for competitive cheering.
Too tired to write any more.

Maggie's Kindergarten Program

Maggie's school had the annual kindergarten show-off. They did "It's a Sense-ational World" about all the senses. It was really cute but sticking that many White county parents in the gym just reminds me that there's tons of work to do with the kids as they grow up in this here environment! She had a speaking part "Let's pretend we're chickadees".

video

I'm not exactly sure why the video won't load up and I don't know how to fix it. So, if you're interested in hearing her one-liner you'll just have to come visit and watch the whole thing.
I finally sent it to youtube... so here's the video!! :)

Bennett's On Air Joke

Bennett told his joke on 104.7 the Fish today. He was the Junior Joker. I was at work so I called him and had him on the phone while it aired. Curtis took a brief video of the punchline but you can't really hear the audio unless you turn it up and then you really get to hear Lydia say it again! Mom got the Fish to email the audio and I've tried to embed it here. But I can't get the link to work. Here's the joke... "what do you call a fairy who hasn't taken a bath??? Stinkerbell!! **insert laugh here**

Download bennett-2-1-08.mp3
I think you can use this link if you want to download the file. Otherwise, use the link below (in Seth's name) and you can just listen to it.

This is the best I can do tonight. Maybe Seth can help me get the audio on here. :)
videohere- This is Seth's link to the audio. It's probably the best bet to listen to it. :) This is a bunch of work. ha or here

Science Night

First Grade Science Night at J.P. Nix Primary school... January 31st, 2008.
Curtis and Lydia were banned from spreading their germs so I took the 3 older kids to go put "hands on" with their friends. There were many more friends there than I expected with the weather so cold and rainy and with as many stomach bugs that are going around.
We had a great time!

Mrs. Bunny shows how magnets work by "Feeding the Hounds". Matt and Josh raced with us. Matt is Bennett's very best friend from Kindergarten, Sunday school and 1st grade. If they aren't in the same class next year we're going to go through withdrawals!





Ruth experiments with colors. How different colors blended change the way things look. She just liked wearing the glasses and looking so glam! :)
Here the girls are enjoying Mrs. Whitaker's class. This was the big hit with most the kids as her class was full and busy the whole time we were there. The concept... blow bubbles in paint and then place your paper on the bubbles and as they pop, they color your paper. Super cool until you suck paint up the straw instead of blowing bubbles. Ruth had a purple mouth and entertained the other parents briefly. She got over it very quickly because Mrs. Whitaker has a really cool water fountain IN her room.



Here we were estimating and counting and sorting... but not eating jelly beans.


We also did a "Sink or Float" guessing game which Maggie won because she guessed everything would sink... and only the wooden stuff floated.

Mrs. Milhollin (Bennett's teacher) had a "Guess What's Inside" shaking egg game. She had various objects inside plastic eggs and you had to shake and guess. It wasn't easy! It was Ruth's favorite class. They had a vibrating hanger room that I have a picture of, but didn't download yet. We didn't make it to the last several rooms because we ran out of time.
We then ran to Ingles for a few grocery needs/wants and while we were there the girls were being silly and repeating Bennett's on-air joke of Stinkerbell (over and over) and a fellow who was walking by said he wasn't Tinkerbell... he was Peter Pan. Well, we ran into him several times and the girls wanted to know if he really was Peter Pan. He was funny playing along with their game.
Then we went to Dairy Queen and had more sugar. I was freezing, it was raining and we were eating ice cream. Go figure!
Today Bennett was on-air. I'll download his video tonight when I get home from work.
