Soccer Season 2015

It’s soccer season again, but this time Alex is playing on the Harris Branch Neighborhood League.  This is the first year the neighborhood has organized any type of sport, so it has been fun getting to know some neighbors and not having to drive through traffic all over the city to watch the games!

Alex’s team name is The Raptors and he is Number 6

Lego Club for Homeschoolers

This year Alex has joined the Lego Club for Homeschoolers.  Once a month, he signs into a live, virtual classroom where his instructor, Ms. Roni, gives a lesson on the topic of the month and then she goes through a Lego build step-by-step and the kids build along with her.  At the end of class, they have a new Lego creation to display!

Trailblazers Hiking Club at Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge

Today was our first hike of the 2015-2016 year with the Texas Trailblazers Hiking Club.  Because it is National Wildlife Refuge Week, we hiked 2.2 miles (through the Hill Country) inside the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge.  It’s still very warm here in Texas, so while the weather was beautiful starting out, we were pretty hot by the time we made it back down from the top.  But the view was worth the climb and Alex was amazed at how far he could see.
