The Beach, The Zoo and Family!!!!!

Uncle Jordan, his son, Massey, Myself, Elsa and Abby all went down to San Diego, CA. for Uncle Cedric's graduation.  We missed his graduation because Jordan couldn't leave until after work on Friday.  We got there late Friday night and then on Saturday we filled our day of visiting with each other and letting the cousins play together.  We went to the San Diego Zoo, then the beach.  Then, on Sunday we went to the same church that Mitt and Ann Romney go.  Mitt wasn't there, however, Ann was.  We never did get close enough to talk to her.  Well, I guess I could have made more of an effort, but my shyness kicked in.  I missed that opportunity.  I kick myself every time I think about it.  Oh well!  
We had a great weekend!

This kid loves maps!

Scence Fair Time

O.k. so this year in school, 4th grade, it was Elsa's turn for a science project.  I must say that it was much more fun to help her as opposed to her brothers.  Dallin always waited until the last minute to tell me anything, let alone anything about a science fair.  In fact, one year he waited until the day after it was due.  Calvin also waited until the last minute, but he got up extra early without waking me or his dad up and did a quick science project and wrote it all down on a piece of card board and called it good.  Elsa, on the other hand, came home the day she found out about the science fair and told me excitedly.  Then, she let me help her with presentation.  Something I never got to do with my boys.  I tried to tell Dallin, on one project this year, that it would help him get a better grade if it was neat.  He insisted that it wouldn't make a difference.  I finally said, "Whatever Dallin, you know more than me."  He ended up getting a B.  He still insists that it's not because it wasn't typed.  Oh well, it's his grade, right?!  Anyway, Elsa had fun with her project, which was planting popcorn and seeing if the kernels would grow and if so, what they would look like.  She got an A.
