Big Girl

She's becoming such a big girl. After a bit of training she mowed all by herself. Claudia is doing really well at basketball and started learning the baritone and will be in band this fall in 5th grade.

Claudia has completed her 4th grade season.  Next year will be a big step up in commitment but she seems to be ready.  She likes it a lot.  Her team did really well this year even though most of the kids were 3rd graders.

Soccer season coming soon.

Claudia is almost nine years old.  She is almost five feet tall.  She continues to be one of the tallest girls in her class.  She hears "You've gotten sooo tall" every where she goes.  She has lots of Aunts...

She is doing great at basketball.  She is in 4th grade and it is a 3rd-4th grade league, so she is a leader on her team.  She loves playing the games.  She is taking the winter off from soccer, but watches it on TV all the time.

She is in class with Mrs. Matthews.  She gave a workshop on iPad use with classmates that was really fun to parents.  She is auditioning for a solo with the chorus today for the concert next month.  Her first "real" school concert.  Hopefully one of many. Soon we will decide band or orchestra or choir...

Claudia is doing really well in soccer.  She works really hard at it.  She almost always play center back to start and end the game.

Fourth grade is going well and her teacher is Mrs. Matthews.

She is practicing the piano a lot.  She also had basketball tryouts tonight and did really well.

The airport was long the plane ride was 8 hours. When we got to Madrid we had to drive for hours to get to bennicasim where the wedding was. We stayed in a bungalow. We went to the beach a lot.  The water was very warm and there were no fish rocks or seashells in the sand. We went to this festival on the beach.  Everybody built bonfires on the sand and at midnight everybody was supossed to run into the water and jump over three waves and make three wishes.  We went out to dinner and the kopecs were at the same reasturant  and when we got inside Tootie and Jeff were in there to having dinner.

We went to Barcelona for a day. We took the train.  we got on the tour bus.  We saw the Olympic torch.  We got back on the bus and went to some cable cars.  The picture is when we are at the top  of the hill.  At the top of the hill there were a fort that the people used.  Then we got back on the tour bus and to the train station.  the train had a table in the middle  so we played cards.
