We had our annual Brunch with Santa at Bluegrass on Sunday, December 13. This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions each year. The boys always look forward to the food, the crafts, and of course seeing Santa. As we do each year, we took some family pictures at home before going. It amazes me how much they grow and change in one short year.

The Indoor soccer tournament season kicked off at Merrol Hyde on Sunday, December 6th. Brody's team finished in second after a golden goal tie breaker in the championship game. It was so much fun to watch these boys...they all played great!
The third grade classes went to the Adventure Science Center on Friday, December 4th to learn all about space. Brody was so excited to have both Jason and me come along for this field trip. We had the best time with him and his friends. I am reminded daily of how blessed we are to have our boys surrounded by so many wonderful school friends.

Jason and I loved having Thanksgiving lunch at school with the boys on Friday, November 13th. We are very thankful for a great school with amazing teachers and staff. We are also thankful for all of the families that we have grown so close to from school. Merrol Hyde has been such a blessing for all of us, and we are thankful for sure!

The third graders have been reading and discussing Charlotte's Web together as a class over the last few weeks, and on Friday, November 6, they went to the Nashville Children's Theater to see the play. Watching this book come to life on stage was a great way to wrap up their Charlotte's Web study.

On Thursday, October 29, the first graders went on a field trip to Red River Farms. This is a beautiful farm, and the kids had a great time! They learned about the life cycle of pumpkins, "planted" pumpkin seeds in a ziploc bag, picked a pumpkin and painted it, went on hay ride, did a corn maze, rode a barrel train, and played on the farm's playground. It was a fun and exhausting day for all!!
