Dropping Eggs and Bear Picnics

Aby's elementary school had lots of neat activities planned during the month of September. The first was Egg Drop day. Each child can make a container for an egg to be placed in, then dropped off the firetruck ladder. Aby and Chris worked together on this project. They ended up taking a plastic container filling it half way with flour, then placing the egg in, and topping it off with more flour. This idea was taken from Pioneers. They would travel across bumpy country side and placed their eggs in the flour so they wouldn't break. We decided to try it out, and it worked perfectly. There were definitely some creative containers made.

Here is the view from our back gate.

So proud the egg made the drop.

Aby's class has Mystery Readers. Chris was excited to take part in this activity. He read the book Song and Dance Man. He brought his guitar and sang The Hokey Pokey and the ABC song with them. They had a wonderful time.

Aby was very excited that Daddy surprised her.

Another exciting activity was the Teddy Bear Picnic. All the kindergartners walked over to the park that is next to the neighborhood pool. They each had their teddy bears, and of course bear snacks.

McKinley loved getting to take part in this activity.
