Zack the chef

Zack is becoming the big kitchen helper. He is always wanting to make his own meals and making meals for anyone else. Granted his meals consist of cereal, sandwiches and chips, you get the picture. Well on Sunday morning (fathers day) he wanted to make pancakes for Kris. Normally pancakes are made from scratch in my house but if I am eating them I use a gluten free mix. I wanted some so the mix it was. Zack read the directions and started to pour everything in a bowl and tried to mix. It was obvious there was a problem. He reread the directions and still did not catch his mistake so I had to step in. Instead of 1 cup of mix he put in 1 bag. Lets just say he was on his way to making bricks instead of fluffy pancakes. Once I fixed the batter he took over again. The pancakes turned out well and we feasted. He was pretty proud of himself for making such a good meal.

I am beginning to think by the end of summer I will have this kiddo trained to make dinner and I will just sit back and watch.

Schools out.

Friday the 7th was Zacks last day of school. It is hard, very hard to believe he is moving on to the second grade next year. Just where has the time gone?

He received the Principals award for academics, the good character award, and perfect attendance for the last quarter at the awards ceremony that morning.  His teacher also made up a special award for each member of the class. What award did Zack get? Anyone who knows my child knows how spot on his teacher is. She gave him the most likely to become a 'Video Game Developer' award. Out of all the awards this one was his favorite!

When I looked at his report card I was very pleased to say the least, he is such a smart kid and I for one am a very proud mom!

Weekend at Patriots Point

Exploring an airplane on board the U.S.S. Yorktown
We took a little trip this past weekend down to Mt. Pleasant SC. We spent the weekend with the scouts aboard an aircraft carrier the  U.S.S. Yorktown.

 Boys quarters (4 bunks high) from what I hear there was 112 bunks in one room.

Girls quarters (I do believe mine was a little more roomy) there was only 6 bunks in our room.
 Exploring the ship before breakfast

 During the Aviation class

 During the oceanography class

 Trying to cool down on a hot and humid day.

 The destroyer the boys explored.

 Having a little bit of fun playing.

 The submarine, the men who stayed in the submarine had to be mentally strong. After walking through this I knew there was no way I could ever spend more than a few minutes in one of these. Talk about a tight space.

 A rocket on the grounds.

The ship we stayed on but really I think I boarded the wrong one, (see below)

Now this is the ship I should have been on!

We had a great time on board exploring, learning, and playing.
