Luke's Experiment

Which ball bounces the highest?  Basketball, soccer ball or tennis ball?  Luke said tennis and it actually was the basketball.

More Memorial Weekend Fun

Time for the dogs to swim - our dog Gander, who swims regularly in anything with her "cousin" (my brother's dog), Harper who was swimming for the first time (with a little bit of panic, actually a whole lot of panic but she did better each time).
 And more time with friends in the pool.

Science Experiment

Testing out those senses...would the color of the drink affect perception of taste?
Carter put it to the test, with all of his classmates giving it a try (or least those that wanted to).
It really was just all apple juice with a little bit a food coloring.  And many people did not guess apple juice for anything of those that did not look like it.

Breaking Records

Like many boys, Luke lives for recess and PE at school.  The pacer test was on his mind (I am not super clear on the test, something about running the length of the gym in a certain amount of time and with each time the time to get back and forth gets shorter and shorter, one must get back before times runs out.  If you make time you move on to the next.).

Luke knew his pacer test for PE was the next day.  He very specifically set out his clothes and shoes the night before.

He came bursting off the bus that day...he beat the school record, as a 3rd grader, he set the new school record for as long as they have been doing this (he got 94 laps).  He was on cloud nine and all of his friends were so excited for him as well.

A couple of days later, it was Carter's turn to run the pacer test.  And he beat Luke and set the new school record (he got 95).

Luke still has the record for 3rd grade and Carter now has it for 5th/school.  I joined them for lunch to get a quick picture.
The other names listed are the girls records.  The boys records are the second one listed as mountain lions.
