Wickenburg, AZ (in the rain)

Last Saturday the kids and I did a day trip to Wickenburg, AZ. I had only ever been there one time before and that was maybe 15 years ago. It is a rather small town with a western feel about an hour north east of Phoenix. They have an excellent Western museum in their down town shopping area. I enjoyed it very much. There were quilts on display (always a favorite),  lots of western art including paintings, pencil drawings, sculptures, the history of the saddle and many examples of the progression through time and in the lower floor a diorama of an old western town. I liked the almost 4 foot cowboy boot. It was a nice way to celebrate my birthday with my kids.

 

 

Nathan’s 7 Habits

This is not Nathan’s class but this is the song and the theme of the entire year in the school which Nathan attends. It’s been a great year for him overall and I am very pleased with what he has been learning.

Nathan’s 3rd grade class, along with the rest of his school did a special program yesterday to salute vets on Veteran’s Day. They sang the song, Thank You, Soldiers.  All the kids from K-8 did a great job honoring the men and women of the Armed Forces.

IMG_5879 (2)Our neighbor’s didn’t go on vacation a moment too soon.  We were asked to water plants and swim in the pool.  With our 110 degree days it is fun to do.  Jamie and Nathan are especially enjoying the water.  Another great blessing from God!
