Welcome to third grade! I hope you're having an exciting summer, I know that my family and I are. We took our first family-of-five vacation this summer to Lake George, NY, to see Hazel, Oscar, and Rose's cousins. On the drive back we found out that work on our house was taking longer than expected, so we had to stay with Grampa and Grammy for three extra weeks. A one-week vacation turned into a one-month vacation! Did you have anything unexpected happen this summer?
One of our favorite family activities is going to the beach. Hazel, who is three, likes to run in the waves and play on the rocks. Oscar, who just turned one, likes to crawl and look for tiny rocks to put in his mouth. Rose, who also just turned one, likes to eat sand! Here's a few pictures of us from this summer:
While you're here, please take a couple of minutes to explore our class blog. You can see previous years' blog posts to get an idea of some of the things we might do this year, and can also find our specials schedule and links for Scholastic Book Ordering. I'd love to hear from you in the comments, specifically two things: 1) What have you been up to this summer? and 2) If you could have lunch with any one person on Earth, who would it be and why?
You should be getting a letter in the mail from me this week. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer. I can't wait to meet you! Hopefully I'll see you at Family Drop-In Day on August 31st from 9:30 to 10:30, and definitely when school starts on September 5th!
