Famous Texans Wax Museum

Today was the 4th grade wax museum presentation of famous, and sometimes infamous, Texans in history.  Zane was Admiral Chester Nimitz.  The kids are not supposed to speak unless asked who they are. Then they give you a very brief synopsis of their lives and what they are remembered for.  We did not stop and talk to all of them but tried to do several.  There are a lot of 4th grader – 4 classes. And I am terrible and cannot remember who they were!  But here are some pictures…

Tomorrow is awards then Friday these 4th graders get to walk the halls of this school for the last time.  They are moving up to middle school.  Time flies…

So, just sharing a few cloud/lightening pictures. I never got any good lightening just some flashes.

Time to get back to blogging and taking pictures

Soooooo, I don’t know how I got so far away from my blogging and from taking pictures but I did.  Sigh. I want to get back to it and the best way is to just jump in.  Of course my most prolific pictures are of the grandsons so here goes. 

Zane is playing baseball and I ten to take lots of pictures usually but backed off as just how many pictures can you take of one kid on the baseball field?  OK, OK, too many I know but I am still waiting to get on the field to take them.  That is not going to happen so I just keep hoping to catch that perfect moment.  I have not even taken my camera in awhile.  Here are a couple of Zane at bat and sliding into home.

Zane is very good at stealing bases.  Always amazes me as he is not the fastest kid.

Zachary played soccer and missed out on a lot of track but did get to run in one meet. Of course, it was more good practice for him after missing most of the season.  Now he is in off season track and cross country so he will be ready for next year.  Here are a few of his only meet this year.

OK, a few more of just yesterday.  Zane’s “track” meet.  His last one as next year he will be in middle school!  Oh my gosh, where has the time gone.  Two more weeks and they 4th graders get to walk the halls of the grade school one last time.  Anyway, Zane was in the Soccer Kick, Standing Long Jump, and the Tug of War.  He was supposed to do the Obstacle Course but not sure what happened there.  Probably ran out of time.

Thanks for visiting!  There will be more baseball this week and Zane’s school 4th grade has their Heroes of Texas Living Museum on Thursday and I know I will have pictures of that.  I will surprise you with who Zane portrays.  Back when Zachary did it he was George H. Bush.  Can’t wait to see the kids all dressed up.  Let’s see what else will come up in the next week. I’ll be back!
