Congrats to John on straight A's all year! Now it's on to 2nd grade! His reading teacher, Ms. Bagley, prepared an end-of-year presentation, a reading restaurant. Each of the children prepared a menu featuring an "appetizer" book, a "main dish" book, and a "desert" book, which was one they wrote and illustrated themselves.

Brazos Bend State Park--We've been wanting to come see the alligators!
We couldn't believe all the wildlife we saw when we got there. When we came in at night, we saw dozens of raccons, several armadillos, a few deer and opossoms. And the fireflies were like Christmas lights. We tried to cook hot dogs while the nearly fearless raccoons raided our camp, trying to scare us away from our food. The next day, we saw turtles, bunnies, tons of squirrels, and twenty or so alligators (before we stopped counting). It was a fun, memorable trip.
