I'm linking up with some other blogs to share
Five on Friday with the Ferrell boys and me!
Zach had a Science Report due on Monday. Each student had to choose a tree for his report, and Zach chose the Persimmon tree.
We visited Mrs. Dot because we knew she had a Persimmon tree in her back yard. It also didn't hurt that Mrs. Dot knows everything about trees and plants in our area.
Zach collected samples of the leaves and the fruit. We took pictures and questioned Mrs. Dot all about the Persimmon tree.
While we were visiting, Mrs. Dot gave Shane a ride on her scooter.
It's always so much fun when go over to Mrs. Dot's house.
And Zach made a 100 on his Tree Report. I went by the school at just the right time to hear him present his report. He did great.
Shane lost his first tooth this week. Finally.
I've been wiggling that tooth every night trying to get it out. I think he was the only one in his class that hadn't lost a tooth.
Alex and Shane went on a field trip this week with their classes to the local pumpkin patch. They had a wonderful time. Can you spot my two boys?
They both came home with little pumpkins. Shane has been anxious to make his pumpkin into a Jack O Lantern. He keeps telling me that we have to put a lantern in his pumpkin so I guess we'll be carving some pumpkins real soon.
He also brought one kernel of corn home from the pumpkin patch's corn crib.
He intends to plant the corn kernel so he can grow his own corn plant.
Shane is such an interesting little boy. He has this huge imagination.
Yesterday, he made a little toy to take to the pee wee ballgame.
I call it a toy, but it's really just a plastic grocery bag and clothespins taped together.
He took it to the ballgame. Shane and his friend Colt played with the plastic bag/clothespin toy all night at the game. They even argued over taking turns playing with it. Isn't that funny. He's still playing with it today.
Maybe I should post a tutorial on how to make the plastic bag/clothespin toy. Ha!
The boys played their 3rd pee wee football game last night.
Alex #1 on the move.
Alex loves playing. I'm so glad he decided to play this year.
Both teams had a difficult time holding on to the ball . . . seems like both teams fumbled a lot during this game.
Here's a picture of Zach getting the ball when the opposing team fumbled . . . He's the one on his knees crouched over the ball. Oh, and there's Alex on the sidelines . . .
Despite the fumbles, our team won the game. :)
So there's my Five on Friday for this week! Hope you've enjoyed this quick look into the very busy week with . . .
