Field Trip

Gr 4 started a unit on Fair Trade this week. We visited Zotter’s Chocolate Factory. We watched a film about how chocolate is made from bean to bar and then we learned about Zotter’s Fair Trade practices. After that we walk around the factory trying many, many different types of delicious chocolates.

The entire fourth grade took a photo in front of the I Heart SH sign.

Can you spot him?
After the field trip, these three cuties and I didn’t take the bus back to school. Instead we jumped in a car to head to Puxi campus and our busy week continued….

Into the Woods!

Big week in the Hossack House.

On Wednesday we went to see Into The Woods – many of our friends were in the performance and Blake has been to a lot of the practices. He knows every word to the songs. Blake is looking forward to Middle School, though he can’t decide if he wants to act or be stage crew. I think he’d like to do both.

This is a pic of Blake sitting on the empty set. He even helped our friend Jeff paint some of the set.

We would have gone back for the second show on Thursday except we were busy. See next blog post.

Halloween at School

Blake’s Rubik’s Cube costume was a big hit at our School Halloween today.

If anything, it was too well liked. Blake got knocked around a fair bit by well meaning kids.

Blake on the Halloween Parade today. Peeking out of an armpit hole. I was Mr Bump. Scott rode his dinosaur to school.

Pitching for the Hawks

It’s about to get all braggy up in here because he did so great!

He pitched the first two innings and caught the last three.

Some stats for you….

He faced 7 batters. 3 strikeouts. 2 hits. 0 runs scored. 2 defensive plays – out at first.  In this league there are no walks – if the batter gets to 4 balls the coach stepped in 2x to complete the at bat – that happened 2x.

He also hit 3 for 3. A double and two singles. Made it home twice.

Our little superstar.

Go Hawks!

Wet and Wonderful Soccer Day

Blake’s first Gr4 soccer day was a soggy one, but the kids had a terrific time.

Mr Anderson put the kids into 2 equal groups of 7 and made a schedule with half playing each half.  When he met with the opposing side at the start of each game they would decide how many to play each game. If he was playing a big class they might be 10 vs 10. If he needed extras he would ask the kids, who wants an extra run. Blake put his hand up every single time. Blake played his heart out, ran his guts out and always wanted to be part of the action. That makes me pretty darn proud.

After a full day of soccer, he went to baseball practice for 2 hours. Pretty great day, all around.
