This week is Spring Break. We were hoping that it would be all fun and games, but we are still having some fever problems at our house. But instead of sulking around the whole entire week, we are going camping. We decided to get out of Midland and check out a place that we have wanted to go to for a while. On Thursday we are going to Palo Duro Canyon. It is the Grand Canyon of Texas, at least that's what the website says :) The pictures they show are beautiful, so I sure hope it will be. I'm sure it will be better than the brown grass we have around here! So we are super excited and can't wait to go. It may be a little cold at night, but we're going to bundle up and play lots of games! This will be my second camping trip since we moved here and I can probably count on two hands the number of times I have been camping in my life. Yes, I said life. My first experience camping was going to Girl's Camp as a young woman. Isn't that crazy? My parent's idea of camping was staying in the family cabin, with running water and all the amenities :) I can actually say that I enjoy camping, it's nice to get in touch with nature. The only down side to this trip will be no camp fire. There's a burn ban, so at least we have a camp stove and lots of blankets! It should be an adventure for sure and we're certainly making some memories!
The other day Kylan came home with a letter in his back pack. It was a letter from the City of Midland. I was a little confused, it had his name on it, so I thought, "Is he getting a bill?" So I opened it up to find out what it was. This is what it said,
I recently heard that you are an outstanding student that deserves being recognized for your hard work and extraordinary effort. Congratulations! What an honor that is and you should be very proud of yourself.
Has anyone ever told you that you can do anything you truly believe in? Well, I'm telling you now! Whether you want to be a pilot, a doctor, an artist, or even President of the United States, you can accomplish your goals by working hard and dreaming big! Keep up the great work, Kylan, and remember that you are special and that the world can't wait to see what dreams you can think up!
This letter is my way of letting you know that you are special and that someone is thinking about you. I hope you have an Incredible Kid Day!
I was pretty suprised to find this! It's not every day you get your very own letter from the Mayor of your city, right? Way to go Kylan, and keep up the good work!
Kylan had his 2nd grade program this last Thursday. It was "It's a jungle out there," He didn't have a part, but they sang some pretty cute songs. I'll have to get him to sing some of them and put a video on here. He's been practicing them for a long time, and Caleb has even picked up a couple songs :)
