Milo & the 2012 Heat Wave

I hope you have survived the 2012 Heat Wave!  Mrs. Brouwer’s thermometer read 105 degrees in Hudsonville and in Holland, mine read 104 degrees.  

Milo dealt with the heat wave in three ways:

  1. Sleeping over the top of the air conditioning vent.
  2. Swimming in the pool with visitors…like Mr. Bowen.
  3. Lying in deep holes…which he dug throughout my garden.
I recommend #1 and #2.  Choosing #3 results in a sudsy bath in the cold sprinkler!

Below is a video of one of Milo’s holes.   That was a huge hole for one small stick!  Enjoy the next few days of more normal West Michigan temperatures and sunshine!

Go Ahead…Celebrate S’more!

Did you know today is National S’more Day?  Quick….run out to the nearest grocery store and pick up a package of graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows.

If you don’t have a fire pit to roast your marshmallows, you can make these in your microwave.

Mr. Bowen, one of our teachers, is one of the very best s’more makers around!  In honor of him and this fabulous summer treat, HAPPY S’MORE DAY TO YOU AND YOURS!

S’more, anyone?

So far, we have learned that Georgetown teachers like to bike ride, go blueberry picking, water ski, relax and learn during their summer vacations.  One of our fourth grade teachers, Mr. Bowen, loves to do just about anything OUTSIDE especially if it involves a game, sport, hunting or spending time with family and friends.
This summer, Mr. Bowen and his wife  spent time exploring beaches along Lake Michigan.  One adventures included a camping trip to Manistee with his dad, brother and family.  Mr. Bowen learned how to make s’mores this summer.  He now claims to be one of the best s’more makers this side of the Mississippi!

Holiday Program Performance: Grade 3

Featured below is an uploaded version  of our third grade classes performing during our fourth annual Holiday Program on December 17, 2009.

I hope you enjoy this video!
