Justin's 5th grade class had a "5th grade Farewell". It was an awards assembly to recognize all their accomplishments throughout their elementary years. Justin was recognized with a Safety Patrol award, a Science Fair medal and a Writing Wonders award. Safety Patrol for helping take down the flag and make sure kids made it to their cars/busses; Science Fair for Science Fair participation; and Writing Wonders for writing for the school newspaper. We are proud of our (soon-to-be) 6th grader! Ignore the "subtitle goes here" flag. I tried to correct it, but my computer is not letting me.

Mike and Justin went camping with Justin's Scout Troop in May. They spent the weekend in Inks Lake camping, caving and swimming. This is the inside of one of the caves.
On the way back, they stopped at Whataburger for dinner and met up with a biking group. One of the bikers said he had made Eagle Scout when he was in Scouts and he was still able to recite the Scout Pledge/Oath. They had their pictures taken together and the bikers let the boys sit on their bikes for pictures.
Liking the bike!

The End of the year picnic for Jarin's Cub Scout Pack was held at a local park. Mike arranged for Life Flight to come and show their helicopter to the boys. Unfortunately Mike and Justin were camping that weekend out of town, but I was able to go and enjoy the fun with Jarin. He officially became a Wolf Cub on June 1st!

Yet another end of the year activity at school! Shuttle Day! It was a fun day. I spent the morning inside the shuttle taking blood pressures and pulses. In the afternoon there was an assembly with singing, slide shows and several guest speakers. T'was a fun day for our Austin Astronauts!

The 5th graders did a great job this year with their Talent Show act. I helped on the committee to pull this act off. We decided on a 50's theme complete with an Elvis. The kids danced and sang to "Yakety Yak, We go Together, and Rock around the Clock". After several rehearsals, the kids pulled it off! Justin had a lead role as a boy in the first part.
