First Day of Second Grade!

Ryan started SECOND grade on Monday, August 27, 2012.  He was excited!  and so was I.
 New backpack!
 New lunch box.
And they're ready for school!

 Lining up with his class.
 Sydney and Ryan are in the same class this year!

 Ryan's good buddy Brady is also in his class.
 Ryan has two teachers this year.  They split the day or job-share.  Mrs. Joyce is in the morning, and Mrs. Barnes comes in the afternoon.
Evan and I wanted to take a sneak peek at Ryan in class before we left.  There he is sitting in the back.

August Birthdays

Ryan, Cole and I all have Birthdays in August.  Colin's mom does too.  We got together on Sunday for a birthday party at my mom's house.  

Skylanders Birthday Party

We had Ryan's 7th Birthday Party on Saturday, August 25, 2012.  We had the party at our house.  He invited his friends: Ben, Ian, Easton, Jackson, Rylee, and his brother Evan and his cousin Emry.  His birthday party was Skylander's themed.    We had 8 activities.  One for each of the 8 elements in Skylanders.  The first was air.

 The kids had to stick the balloon between their legs, run down to the line, sit on the balloon to pop it.

The kids each had a game card. Each element had a circle and for each challenge they completed, they received a sticker for their game card.  Once the game card was filled up, they had defeated Kaos, the bad guy.
 Undead is the second element.  They played a game of Zombies vs. Humans tag, which is basically the same thing as sharks and minnows or British Bulldog, whatever you wanna call it.

 The third element is Earth.  They each got to plant a seed.
