A Bad Day for Kevin


by: Sebastian


        Kevin decided to fly a kite after his mother yelled at him because he lost his glasses. He decided to fly his kite at the bottom of a deceivingly calm volcano. Inside of him there was a deep sadness. [6] He lost his favorite Legos. Kevin sighed, “I wish this was tomorrow already.” [3] Creepily, he heard a petrified scream, which was in the distance. It's the opposite of a cool day for Kevin, especially after being yelled at.

        [3] Suddenly he heard a terrifying scream coming from him! The exploding volcano sent a great gust rocketing Kevin into the air. He looked down and spotted a bear, which looked hungry. He also spied an epic looking girl who cackled evilly at him. [6] It way to much. “Am I going to die?“ whispered Kevin under his breath. He screamed with terror in his eyes.

        [3]Amazingly, the kite ties around Kevin and sticks him to a tree. He looks over and sees a jumbo bear menacingly scouring at him, which causes Kevin to try to wiggle out of the tree. The bear looked liked a blob as it lunged at Kevin. [6]The bear swallowed Kevin whole! “What the heck am I going to eat in here?” thinks Kevin. It's not fun to be stuck in a bear, but it is interesting.

Storm Jonas


This past weekend we had the biggest storm I have ever seen!  We got over two feet of snow in this system and it dumped it all on us in about 30 hours. The record has been broken! It did not stop. It was beautiful. Playing in the snow up to their waists, kids have been busy outside since schools have been closed for the past two days. Even my husband hasn't had to go to work!  Here are some of the pictures I took to document this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Field Trip Friday #2: Nature Center

Earlier this month we went on our first field trip of 2016 to a local Nature Center. Luckily they have an indoor education building where we spent our time learning about habitats, ecosystems, wetlands, animals, and what the park is like in the winter. I told the kids we should come back in the spring to see how different everything would be like!
