American Museum Of Natural History Chaperone

I was fortunate to be able to chaperone Eason's school field trip to the American Museum of Natural History. I was responsible for nine kids, each with packets of field trip work assigned to them, and they were so enthusiastic, organized, and cooperative, it was such a pleasure to accompany them. We watched Dark Universe in the Hayden Planetarium, and the Big Bang presentation. Then we went down the Cosmic Pathway, and visited the Hall of the Universe, the Hall of Planet Earth, and the Scales of the Universe (which is my personal favorite). Then we got to see The Titanosaur, and Eason's science teacher gave us a tour of the entire fourth floor Fossil Halls. Everyone was so thankful and polite when the trip was over.

Halloween 2016

For Halloween Andrea dressed up as Pippi Longstocking and Eason was Darth Maul. I was sort of like Grand Master Po with the goatee I had been growing since January. Andrea had a parade and party at school.

At night we all went trick or treating.

We made a jack-o##-lantern. It was orange, and hollow, and will get tossed in November.

Whitney Museum & High Line

Aviva convinced us to go into the city, which I never like to do unless I have to, but we had a really nice day. We went to the Whitney Museum of American Art. After seeing all the exhibits Aviva and the kids made protest placards. Then we grabbed lunch at Bill's Bar & Burger before we walked along the High Line. It was a beautiful day.

Apple Picking 2016

We went back to Barton Orchards to do some apple picking. We also picked up a pumpkin, and of course we went through their corn maze. For the first time we found all the clues before finding the exit.

Labor Day Push-Ups 2016

We continued our Labor Day push-up tradition, and even though we all went in to it thinking that we would not do well due to injuries and lack of practice, we all beat our previous records. Then we did a little extra just to see if we could.

Paddleboarding

I got Aviva and Eason paddleboards as birthday presents. Eason likes to stand on it, like it was made to be used, but I like to sit on it and use it like a kayak, with the kayak oars. I like to use the kayak oars when I stand on it as well. The best part is lying on it and drifting in the water.
