Being this close to Sea World, my youngest children are always asking to go. We haven't gone to Sea World in almost five years! Arya was so excited! This is her watching the Sea Lion.
By the end of the day the kids were exhausted. I thought they were getting over a cold, but by the time we got home three of the kids had fevers and I got it really bad two days later. They were troopers through the day and we really want to go back on a day they are feeling better!
Above: Nathan and Alanna just trying to get through the day. They just laid in this tube for about ten minutes hoping to feel better. It didn't work. We left very soon after this.

In third grade at our school the children get to participate in a Wax Museum. They all choose a person from history and do a research report on the person. They turn their report into a 3 minute speech and memorize it. They also decorate a large backdrop that represents something from this person's life. Savannah chose to be Shirley Temple. On Wax Museum day they dress up as their 'character' and recite their speech for the people who come to see them. I think they say their speech around 30 times during the hour and a half presentation! It is wonderful to see the imaginations of these children come to life in their character. Savannah was a perfect Shirley Temple.
This little video shows Savannah doing her speech. It is at the end of the museum, so she is pretty tired, but still really cute!

Alyssa earned her Black Belt in taekwondo back in December. She also certified to be an instructor at the same testing period. I was so impressed with all of her hard work, her grace as she displays the forms, and her skill! She had to show the judges white belt through red-black belt and all of the defenses in order to certify as an instructor. Congratulations to my girl!
