Sochi Olympics

 Our family was super excited when the Olympics kicked off Friday night.  Lincoln has a school project on the Olympics.  He took notes on his favorite Olympic sport (snowboarding)!
 First he made an Olympic torch!
 Our friends, the Browns, brought some yummy Russian food!  It really was delicious!
After food, the kids played Olympic Pictionary.
Ethan has been watching as much as he can.  
He is getting really frustrated with the Figure Skating coverage.  
It seems its always on!

 Ethan has basketball every Saturday.  His team is doing really well this year.  
Nate and I have had a great time watching them play.
Lincoln has gotten a lot reading done!  Haha!  

Sushi Party

 The Browns, Maduras, and Leaps had a sushi party Sunday night!
 Nate was the sushi maker helper.  
 Lincoln picked fried shrimp and carrots.
 Ethan picked shrimp, crab, avocado, and cucumber.  
 Nate and I picked spicy tuna and California rolls.  
 Tami was a show off and made her sushi with the rice on the outside.  Her sushi was so pretty.  
These are Melissa's.  Her sushi was prettier than mine too!  It was super fun! 

Honor Roll

Ethan made the all A's honor roll AGAIN!!  Woohoo!

Field Trip to AFN

On Friday, Lincoln's class went to AFN.  AFN stands for the Armed Forces Network.  
 This AFN building has a TV and radio studio.  We were super excited to see how both worked!
 The kids started off learning about the TV studio.
 We had a great guide at AFN!  He was super funny and let the kids try everything out!
Lincoln enjoyed making faces in the camera!
 Julian got to try out the microphone.
 Mrs. Smith gave them note pads to take notes.
 Next up was the radio studio.  
 Our guide let the kids pick a song and play it over the speakers.  
 It was fun to see what each kiddo picked as their favorite song.  
Lincoln picked Sean Kingston's Fire Burning.
 Our last stop was in the actual studio.  This is the DJ.  
He let them take a quick peek before saying hello to them on the radio!
 Our guide was super funny!  He quickly learned the way to get them to pay attention.  Within the first five minutes he said "poopy face."  After that, they were all ears!!!!  
I love that the kids go to school on base.  It leads to so many great walking field trips.  Tomorrow, I am going into Link's class to talk about my profession!  

Field Trip to the Commissary

Lincoln's class went to the commissary on Tuesday.
I forgot my camera so these pitiful pictures are from my phone.
The kids had a good time, but the mothers had an even better time.  I learned so much!
They really wanted to run the cash register!
Mrs. Smith gave them paper to take notes on healthy and non-heathy items.
The knew right where to go for the healthy foods!
The kids wanted to go to the "secret" areas so badly.  
At the end of our tour they got to see the giant freezers!
