FC: Daily Life 2011
1: It's so hard for me to find the time to capture moments with the camera let alone to scrapbook them. But, I realize these days are precious and time is flying by. I'll do the best I can with what time I do have. Here are just a few of the special parts of our 2011 school calendar year.
2: FRESNO CHAFFEE ZOO
3: We try to get an annual zoo pass every year. At $55 for a family unlimited pass, it's a bargain. The kids never grow tired of going and we are fortunate to have a fabulous zoo so close. At this particular visit, Russ must have irritated the tiger with all the picture taking...he got sprayed. The kids love the petting zoo and reptile house.
4: Ethan joined Cub Scouts and graduated from a Wolf to a Bear (yellow handkerchief to blue). He loves learning new things and earning his badges. | His den took a field trip to the newly re-opened Clovis Fire Station in Old Town Clovis. His 8th Birthday happened to fall on a Cub Scout night. His den honored him with candle-lit marshmallows while at the park for a community service project. | Cub
5: Pine Wood Derby | The Pack purchased a new sleek track from the money earned in popcorn sales. Each boy carves and decorates their own car from a block of wood and then race cars in a series of heats by age class. Ethan's is the 3rd car from the left. I have memories of these from when Ethan's uncles (Eagle Scouts) used to participate in these each year. | Scouts
6: Rebecca joined Girl Scouts as a Brownie. She enjoyed the field trips, friendshiips and selling cookies (350 boxes) | OUR | Troop #1046
8: Daddy's Little Girl
9: Kendall is such a joy. She is full of spunk, personality, and humor. Top left is her holding my childhood doll Mandy in matching PJs. Being silly with Papa. Being a "rock star" and all sweetness in her pigtails in the backyard.
10: Let's | Go | Climbing!
12: Mother/Son Date Night at John's Incredible Pizza
13: A couple times a year, we have a date night with each of the kids. Ethan loves going to John's Incredible. It has all of his favorites...pizza, games, cinnamon rolls and prizes! It's a special time to have one on one with each child.
14: Rebecca dressed so cute for her first audition with a talent scout. She did great but Russ and I decided this was not an avenue we wanted to pursue with her so young.
15: Rebecca Marianna Lee
16: Kendall Alice

20: Talent Show What a brave girl. - Rebecca sang a solo at Century's end of the school year talent show. She sang Faith Hill's "She's A Wild One." I love her courage!
