The kids just love school, love their teachers and have made many fun friends. I just wish I was along to see it all going on. I must admit..........I miss them lots when they are gone. But like a whirlwind they return with loud and exploding energy and I don't know what all that "lonely" time was all about.
Trey was old enough this year to be in the church musical. And he was cast as a "MONKEY". (go figure!!) Lets just say he developed his character without much work.

This here is an in depth lesson on fueling up an airplane, how fast it can go and how many gallons of fuel the tanks can hold. No lie.........Trey was listening so intently and retold all the information to his 1st grade teacher and also his Music teacher.
David and Sandy took us to the Starr Pass for an overnight stay, some swimming and relaxing by the heated patio while viewing the desert sunset. Beautiful.
But there's no rest for the vacation savvy traveller. We headed out in the morning to the Shamrock Farm. My uncle flies for Shamrock so we went to their main "farming quarters"
Here we are with Roxy the Shamrock Cow!
And below is another faithful and supportive employee of the Shamrock family!
His photo made it to the Shamrock Hall of Fame and I'm sure the Shamrock family is so grateful for his professionalize portrait showcased in their milk parlor for all to see!
We took a tour of the farm in an open seated bus but unfortunately we came on the day that they has a huge dust storm. Our eyes were burning and gritty by the end of the tour but it was still tour worthy.
It was such a relaxing trip. It was wintertime for the Grand Canyon so the tourists were very minimal and we just walked everywhere. Miles of Canyon pathways.
Thank goodness we had another activity planned this day. As you can tell from the post below the morning did not go well for Trey. To girlie of a morning for him. So we headed out to Griffith Park (right outside of LA) and visited a train park. His attitude perked up pretty quickly and bless Breanne's little heart, she never complained once about the activities we did that were more up Trey's alley. Such a trooper.
There were lots of trains to ride on.
And tracks to walk on

The kids went to "driving school" where they earned "drivers lisences"
