Because Ben and Nathan are going back to school we went to Chuck E. Cheese and bowling as a last fun outting of the summer. I kept trying to take a picture of Ben and Nathan on the Merry-Go-Round, but kept missing Nathan and the pole kept getting in front of Ben's face.

We also went bowling. It was funny watching the boys bowl, I kept on having to tell Ben to not raise the ball above his head and felt sorry for one of the workers since he had to retreive the ball from the middle of the lane about 3 or 4 times since Nathan didn't throw it hard enough. Nathan got a 61, Ben 67 and I got a 146 which I beieve is my best score yet.
Thursday was Ben's first day of the first grade. He was very excited to go back to Acacia to learn new things and meet his teacher and old and new friends. His new teacher is Mrs Birg and from what friends have told us she's and awsome teacher. Nathan has been wearing his backpack everywhere we go since Ben started school, even to church.

Ben took a week long Lego camp this week. They started out with instruction of basic engineering principles aplied to Legos and then they worked on one or two projects with the instructors walking around giving help. Then they tested their projects out. For the first day they built race cars and raced them Pinewood Dirby style.
They also built a city with their own houe or building.
They started using motors for their cars today for the first time and every project afterwards involved motors.
We walked around and looked at the livestock, which the boys seemed to like, but they kept whining about going on the Dragon ride.

We took the boys the Fishing Frenzy again this year. They throw tons of plastic magnetic fish into the stream and for $5 each they can fish, play games for prizes, make their own fishing hats and painting. This is the second year that we have gone and they love it.
