THEN A DOUBLE RAINBOW!! YES!! It is monsoon season! :):)

We are having a great monsoon season. We have matched our rain total of what we received last year for the total monsoon season and we still have the month of September to go yet. No one complains about the rain. We love it!
Friday night was our annual Family Fun Night held on our parking lot during a Friday night in August. It is a time to welcome new families to our school. Games are free and we grill out despite the rain. What is a little rain shower or two?
Here is all the fun kids and adults had at the games!

Taking a delicious popcorn break :):)

A hit game. Even I gave a try at it; and I had a strike-all the pins down!!



The men always seem to do the grilling! They love to cook outdoors.
Before Family Fun Day we had our regular Friday schedule. Music is the Special Class this day. Here are some snapshots of music this day.

5th grader showing she knows how to draw a treble clef.

The musical scale!

Kindergarten learning rhythm with the sticks. This is fun!
Our Motherhouse website- - features a song of the month. This month it is "On The Road to Human Being" by Kerry Patrick Clark. Just click under Franciscanized World and you will find it. Hope you enjoy the guitar accompaniment in it.

I started this blog out with pictures of the monsoon, here are some more:

The clouds are building during our noon recess.

The clouds are so fluffy against our pretty blue sky. Recess duty is great on a day like this.
Tuesday is our P.E. day and I teach P.E. this year along with our school nurse Ms. Dot who does the health side. We make a great team. We teach our 3 year olds through the 8th grade. I have no problem sleeping on Tuesday nights.

This past Tuesday we started out with kickball with our first class - Grs. 7th and 8th. Take a look at the monsoon clouds that moved us quickly into the cafeteria for international dance and healthy snacks.


You can see the rain coming down in a sheet!  We had to move quickly to the cafeteria. Switch gears-kickball to doing a Hawaiian dance, African dance and the Virginia Reel!  My 5th and 6th graders loved this and went home to teach their parents-who told them they knew it!! My students were so shocked to hear this!! Yes, an old time dance!!! Still popular!!
