I think I have found who is eating my garden. And I am pretty sure he is making some type of obscene chipmunk gesture.

This past weekend, Shawn's adult soccer league had a tournament up in Payson AZ. Thirty of us stayed in a large log cabin that slept us all comfortably.
The property was very kid-friendly. There was a small fishing pond, basketball hoop, horseshoe pit, hiking and a ton of outdoor games for the kids. There were so many kids, that they were not bored at all and spent most of their time outside.
One of AJ's best friends who also happened to be there.

The kids played basketball, rode scooters, played frisbee and of course played soccer. They were outside all day long and only came in for food.
The main fireplace. (There were two.)
To go downstairs. There was a whole other kitchen and family room, along with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the bottom floor.
Jake gave fishing lessons to the kids. They caught quite a few.

You know you are a third grade teacher with an interior design degree, when you dismantle your pencil sharpener with your William Morris tool kit.
I was very annoyed at Zeena the other morning because she would not leave me alone until I woke up. Then, through the fog, I remembered all those stories about pets waking up their people when something was wrong. My eyes flew open, and I looked at the clock. My alarm had never gone off and I had overslept. Thanks, Zeena!

It is the last few weeks of school, and you know what that means! We finally get to teach science guilt-free! I had the kids save their milk cartons and decorate them. Then we planted pea plants. I wrapped them in plastic to create a greenhouse. The test tubes you see on the right are actually a plant growing kit that I got at Cracker Barrel (of all places). The students will be able to see the roots growing through the side of the tube.
