Pilot for a Day

Jasmine was "Pilot for a Day" today. First she went in and got her own flight suit just like the pilots and a hat. The other kids and Jasmine got squadron t-shirts. Then Jasmine met the squadron commander. After that, all the kids tried on the flight helmets and night vision goggles. Jasmine put on a parachute pack that weighed about what she did and also some other gear.

We saw the F-15s. Jasmine got to sit in the cockpit.

We went out on the observation deck of the flight tower. Jasmine even got to talk to the pilots.

We had lunch with the pilots. Aftewards, everyone (except Kathy) flew the real flight similators.

Jasmine got a picture of herself standing by an F-15, signed by all the pilots. They all came out to say goodbye to her and they hung her picture on their squadron wall.

Dance recital dress rehearsal

This is a portrait taken of the girls together.

Here are pictures from Jasmine's dress rehearsal today for Friday's recital. Jessica practices really late today so I'll take pictures of her at Thursday's dress rehearsal. This year I made it to rehearsal without breaking my arm--although let me point out that I did sit through the whole parent's meeting last year with the arm broken before I went to the emergency room.

On the beach

After the awards, we went to the beach, taking a pizza with us. However, the public schools had just gotten out for the summer, too. A bunch of kids were meeting on the beach and the behavior was pretty poor, so we left.

Awards day

Today was the last day of school for the older kids. They just went for awards. Tyler received a Spanish achievement award. Jessica received A/B honor roll. Adam received A/B honor roll also. Jessica is in the pink hair band in the pictures. We'll have more pictures if my camera is found.

Jasmine promotes to first grade, Adam to seventh, Jessia to tenth, and Tyler to eleventh.

Kindergarten graduation

Jasmine graduated from kindergarten last night. These are the pictures Tyler took of graduation. Unfortunately Jessica lost the video camera that has the other pictures. Hopefully someone will find it and turn it in and we'll have more.

Last day of baseball

Today was Jasmine's last day of baseball. After the game, the team went to a player's house for food, swimming and trophies.
