They story about the above picture.  Our hiking group got separated and the group I was with (mostly all the oldest kids) arrived to the parking a good amount of time before the rest of the group.  As one of the only adults, I was trying to come up with things for us to do.  Some of the kids were trying to balance and walk across that blue curb but having a hard time.  So I came up with the idea that if they could get all the way across without falling down they could earn a dollar.  Each kid could earn one dollar and they could try as many times as they wanted until it was time to go.  They were all having trouble and then one kid did it and then all the sudden ALL the kids did it.  I felt like it was inspired because I only had exactly enough dollar bills to give to each kid and I didn’t even know that before I started. HA! 

Kinsley snuggling Nate.  She calls him Nate Nate!

Kinsley had told me she had a loose tooth and then a day or two later, out it came!

I must admit that there is something quite sad about my baby loosing her baby teeth.

I got to go on a field trip with Corbin’s class to a California Museum in Oakland!  It was pretty fun!
