STEM Night and a Cowgirl Showin’ Her Moves

This week was our typical busy week. Valentine’s Day was sandwiched right in the middle of the week. Paul made it special by grilling some really good steaks so that we could have a relaxed dinner at home. Our gifts to each other were food-related (chocolate for me and a variety of smoked meats for him) along with flowers for both me and Abigail. It was so sweet! The events that I have pictures of are from Franklin’s STEM night (where there were a bunch of STEM-related activities set up along with a planetarium exhibit where we watched a video about NASA preparing to go to Mars) and the first grade dance performance for Rodeo Day.

This was probably her favorite activity: she held a circuit in one of her hands and then when she pressed down on the other circuits, they played notes on the piano on the computer.
This was NOT her favorite activity. She liked it up to the point where she got buzzed by the buzzer. She didn’t like the feeling.
I just realized we’re missing the top three words of this quote, haha. It’s SUPPOSED to read, “Don’t tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” She liked the space dog.
She was really excited to see our mascot, Frankie.
Waving to me before the performance. I’m so glad they had the performance during my conference time so that I could run over and see it real quick.
Look at that smile! They did the electric slide to “Boot Scootin’ Boogie”. The best part was when about halfway through, she got hot, so she was trying to dance, still hold on to her owl bear, and take off her sweatshirt all at the same time (while also not losing her hat). It was funny in a cute way. They invited the parents to come down and dance with their kiddos the second time, so I went down and danced with her. The first thing she did was give me a hug and then handed me her hat and her sweatshirt and asked me to take them to my classroom after the dance was over (she’s realizing there are it can be convenient having Mom work at her school…especially when I take my students to lunch right as she’s getting ready to leave, so I get to give her a hug in the middle of the day).
