New Digs

We have spruced up the kiddos rooms lately. Aine has a new four poster bed complete with new quilt and dresser. Eamon and Benton also have new dressers and quilts. They are all very excited about their new rooms and are busy planning the wall decor. Eamon has set his sights on baseball pennants, while Aine will be painting a few canvases for hers.

Science Center

Eamon had a class on catapults at the Arizona Science Center with his cousin, Ashlyn. While he was in class, the rest of us explored. Aine enjoyed the display on centrifugal force,
pulleys, the Bed of Nails and LEGOs.

Benton liked the exhibit on balance, feeling/sensing cold metal Bernouli's principle and LEGO castle. Eamon and Ashlyn joined us at LEGO castle for some jousting. We then checked out the Forces of Nature display before heading out for lunch. After lunch we rode PhART back home.

Karate

Eamon and Aine have been taking karate at Sandoval Freestyle Karate. They both thoroughly enjoy the classes. Aine is part of the Little Dragons program and has advanced to White/Orange belt. Eamon is in the children's classes and is a Yellow belt. It has improved their balance and coordination. They like their teachers and enjoy going every week for instruction and sparring.
