Here's the before and after pictures of us at the Shakira concert last month. It was pouring rain after the concert and we had parked 3 blocks away so we all had to take off our heels and run through the pouring rain!
The kids in my class this year are always saying the funniest things and everyone always tells me I need to post them on the blog, and then I always forget. So here is one from yesterday. This girl in my class, Arleigh is always saying the funniest most random things and she cracks me up! So yesterday I was reading the class a story and at the very end I read "and then they lived happily ever after" and then Arleigh blurts out "And then they DIED and got buried in a graveyard!" : )
Another one from yesterday: the kindergarteners are constantly complementing you, like "Ms Hunt I like your skirt" "Ms Hunt I like your hair". And then it becomes this contest like who can give me the best complement. So yesterday I was walking the kids to lunch and I had a Dr Pepper in my hands and the kids start up "Ms Hunt I like your earrings" "Ms Hunt I like your necklace" and then this little boy goes "Ms Hunt I like your Dr. Pepper." lol
And heres one more: This ones from Rey, my little one who ran away on the first day of school. He's bilingual but he's really slow and very different and he is always intermixing english and spanish when he talks. I have this other boy Omar who speaks no English at all so sometimes I have Aldo (another bilingual student) translate for me when I need to ask Omar something. Every morning when we sit in our community circle, I ask the kids a question and they get to go around the circle and all answer the question. So the other day I asked what is your favorite thing to do at school. And when it got to Omar he just gave me this blank look so I asked Aldo if he could translate. But he got all nervous and said he didn't know how to ask him in spanish what he liked to do at school. So I was just gonna move on and then Rey goes "Ms Hunt! I know spanish" So I thought, this will be interesting...I said "Ok Rey, can you ask Omar what he likes to do." And Rey looks at Omar and goes "Hey Omar. What you like to do?" in perfect english. Lol. I couldnt even hold it in I just started cracking up and Rey stared at me like what? and I just smiled and said "thanks rey!"
Here's a couple pictures of Arleigh and Rey. They are definitely two of my favorites : )
Saturday me and Dad went to the A's game. We got really good tickets on the 9th row by the walkway to the locker rooms. Then when the players went by I could high-5 them. If the A's had one they would have clinched the division but unfortunately they lost the game. The Hopkins were at the game too and a camera guy was in front of me so I waved and I showed up on the big screen and the Hopkins saw me. Dad tackled me while they were filming me - it was pretty cool. Next time I see Noah I'm going to teach him to say "Go A's!" Indians suck!
By the biggest tree I have ever seen in Tikal! Tanner freaking out about a waterfall. This was the funniest thing I had ever seen. Tanner was hyperventilating like he had never seen falling water before. We didnt stop when we saw it the first time when the water was clean and pretty. On our way out we stopped so he could get a picture and it had stormed so the water was muddy. Tanner didnt care. We were all laughing so hard in the car.
This is a view of Antigua and one of the volcanoes surrounding the small town that was one of Johns areas and the place we stayed while we were there.
This is old obviously, but we just got the internet so I thought I'd catch up by adding some of our stuff. John and I went up to Snowbird for our anniversary dinner in June, since we had our first date there a year and a half before. It was lots of fun, we had the best bruchetta we have ever had. The next morning we left for Guatemala!
Noah walked into the kitchen the other day while I was doing dishes. I said, "Hey Noah, how ya doing?" Noah said, "doing well."
I was praising Noah the other day for going pee on the potty all on his own (without me asking him if he had to go.) I helped him get his underwear and shorts back on and he said matter-of-factly, "It's so nice to be dry."
We went to a birthday party for one of our friends the other night but we left a little early because Noah started throwing tantrums. The next morning he wouldn't stop talking about the party and he said, "We had cake and ice cream, and I was MAD!"
Noah likes to play "I Spy" in the car but he doesn't always let you play with him. If you say what you see he gets really mad and says, "No, you don't spy that!"
When Alex cries Noah starts running through the house to help her, the whole time yelling, "Hang in there baby girl, I'm coming!"
Alex was so tired by the time we got to the airshow...she fought sleep through most of it and then fell asleep at the end during the noisiest part, the blue angels. She only cried once, when a blue angel snuck up behind us and flew right over our heads...it freaked us all out!
Alex loves the jumper. She goes nuts in there, I'm always afraid she'll bounce right out. It can be dangerous with Noah around too. The other day I turned my back for just a minute...next thing I knew I saw Alex swinging halfway across the room. Noah said, "I'm pushing the baby girl in the swing!" Alex of course had a huge smile on her face.
