Kids Fun Run
This is as she is running to the finish.
Water Park of America - Flow Rider
These are pictures a video of Isabel doing Flow Rider at the Water Park of America on the last Sunday in April (trying to play catch up on some blogging stuff for the kids). I didn't take many pictures on this trip there, but she had a ton of fun and is tall enough to go on everything there by herself now. She is getting quite tall and will probably go through this size quickly.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013
River Bend Nature Center
These are pictures from Saturday. Isabel was having so much fun and so in to looking for rocks that when brother fell in the water and we had to leave she though we had only been there for 5-10 minutes when in actuality we had been there for 1.5 hours already.

Snow Day on 2/22
Science Fair Presentation
She did a good job presenting. I was there to watch her with one of the two judges. She was happy with how it all went but she does agree it is a lot of work. All the 1st & 2nd graders who participated (I think it was just 7 1st graders, not sure about 2nd graders) got a certificate and a 2nd place ribbon. 3rd grade & up could compete to go on to the regional competition, although the 1st & 2nd graders had to do all the same stuff as the competers which was the experiment, report, display & presentation.
She did like it and likes that she got a ribbon, but thinks maybe next year she won't do it and wait until she is in 3rd grade when she can compete. It was good practice and we know more now so that she can do an even better job to compete. We'll see how she feels about it next year.

All I Want For Valentine's Day
The two on the side on top are not wiggly at all, so maybe the tooth fairy will have a break for a while.
The first two teeth the tooth fairy brought gold coins, but then Isabel mentioned she would like paper money that she can use more easily, so the tooth fairy has been creative with leaving different oragami sculptures made from her dollar bill. She also gets a pack of gum (stuff with xylitol in it which is supposed to be good for your teeth and helps them be healthier) from the tooth fairy as well.

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day
Science Fair Project
These are some pictures I took of Isabel when she was starting her Science Fair project. The Science Fair is next week Thursday and since we have a snow day today, we have been working on her presentation board, report, presentation notes. She is in awe of the ability to Cut and Paste and very thankful she doesn't have to retype everything.
I am very interested to hear what she thinks about the Science Fair after she is done with everything. At her grade level she only gets a participation ribbon (in 3rd grade she can compete), but she still has to do just as much work. I am not making her do all the research that she would have to do at the competition level, but she is having to type everything and do most of the work for the project and the display and the presentation she has to do on her own.
I am curious if she will think it is all too much work or not. It really is a lot of work and I think all she really cared about was doing the experiment. Plus I am not sure if she will like the presentation part of it as she didn't want to do cheerleading again this winter because she didn't want to cheer in front of a crowd.
She isn't finished yet. She has only prepared 3 of the 5 sections for all 3 parts (display, report, notes) so far and the 2 that are left each have as much typing as all 3 combined. I am envisioning a lot of complaining as she is not familiar enough with the keyboard to type efficiently.
