Isaac has been running Cross Country for 2 years and this year we joined the ranks of Track =) He is running the 4 X 100 relay, the 200 m, and is doing the standing long jump. This is a great sport for Isaac. He is part of a team, but his individual skill is what he is measured on. He is not a sprinter, but seems to have good endurance. When running his 200 m, he came in 4th in his heat with a time of 41 sec. Doing the math means he was running about 5 ½ mph. That seems very fast to me! I believe the number 1 runner was 31 or 32 sec. I can’t even think that fast!

Frederike and her friend picked out this camp site because of the great
trees to hide their tent in =)
Our favorite spot to climb, sit and be a lizard, and watch the sun rise and set.
Isaac found it first =)
So the first night was about 34 degrees at its low. can you tell Warren is cold? We bundled up, but not enough. We did not have the same problem the next night (not to mention that it was probably 44 degrees that night).
This is just cute!
The first day we went from our favorite round rock to the square rock in the distance…..
On the way….
we touched it =)
Weird looking dead cactus.
Isaac’s secret cave.
Special girl time.
The 3 mile hike to an Oasis =)
We tried to burn Joan (see homeschool blog) but it didn’t work =(
Skull Rock… Winnie the Pooh would have been impressed.
Cholla cactus Garden… Amazing!
Cool insects, worm things, crawling around inside this cocoon? How about just Cool!
And of course we became Junior rangers…
Junior Ranger Training!
Who wants to go back with us next time?

You totally thought I was going to say…
well, we saw that too, but we were really excited about the first! Warren dropped him off into a field on his way down the hill. So our friend is now able to find food from the wild instead of our garden. Thank you Bama and Papa for a cage that worked =)
And yes we do have lots of great flowers on our trees. Just in time for this weekends snow storm =) We have an almond, a plum, a peach, a nectarine, a popcorn, oh I mean an apricot, and 3 apple trees. Isaac needs to plant a tree for scouts so I think we might do another popcorn tree. Or a tree for George Washington… kind of patriotic =) Any votes?
