We spent many hours reviewing and studying for the Marine Ecology Contest. We had cards and games all over the living room as we worked on our reviews.
We headed over and stayed in a hotel before the contest. Mom took us to Disney Springs to wander around and get some wiggles out.
The next morning was the contest. We had two intermediate and 1 junior team this year! We certainly are growing.
We all had a great time. The contest was a lot harder this year at the intermediate level. We hoe to do better next year!
Trying to destress after the contest.
Our team didn’t get any awards but E got 2nd place for his level.
When we got home the next day we went out and bought the fishtanks we have been dying to get. We have both been saving for a long time.
I worked on a DNA model to unwind more.
My eye got all puffy and I wasn’t allowed to participate in diving class so I hung out and played with “E” while Emmerson was at diving.
We celebrated our hard work int he marine contest with a trip to the beach to do a clean-up and go critter catching! We netted a LOT of cool sea life.
I just love these old urchins. This one had all the mouth parts intact.
This was also the week of the Country Fair. We helped set up on Thursday and then came back on Saturday and ran our club table.
I got 2nd place in my age group for a photo I took of Emmerson with his rocket.
Friday Dad was off work so we went over to Legoland to enjoy the day. I was excited to drive the boat and ride the many coasters.
Another night we drove out to Disney Springs to see the holiday trees all decorated. We had to act our a scene at each tree.
We finished our swing/play set in the backyard. I love the swings.
We have convinced Dad to go for long walks in the evening and go Pokehunting. We have been enjoying the Dunedin Causeway and Safety Harbor Marine areas.
Our club had the last meeting of the year and we took some cool group photos. We are all excited for January.
And last but not least, the cats are getting to big for the cat tree!
