Art Camp

Dane attended a Mini Art Camp called "3-D Art in Motion." It was a 3 day camp held at the Wellsbranch library. Dane's good buddy Lizzie went with them.

Luckily for me, the art camp teacher keeps a blog. I was checking it out when I spotted some familiar faces! Look for Dane and Lizzie! They are both shown in these pics!

This is day 1. They made mobiles and wind chimes.
This is day 3. They made sculptures.

Besides art camp, Dane has also been to a week of Cub Scout Twilight Camp. This week he is attending a week of Robotic Camp held by the Pflugerville School District.

KidFish 2011

On Saturday, June 4th, we tried our hand at catching fish during the annual Pflugerville KidFish event.  Every year the City hosts a kid-friendly fishing event at Lake Pflugerville.  This year they even stocked the lake with some big 'uns!

Mason, Dane, and I made a morning of it.  (Clark couldn't go because he had to work!  Oh, the pains of growing up.) 

We picked a spot along the edge of the lake just far enough away from the crowds that we thought we might have a good shot at catching a fish.

Mason got right to it! 

Dane took a decidedly more relaxed approach, taking it easy in his "fishin' chair." 

Pretty quickly, though, he had his attention focused on a twitching bobber!


While it wasn't a lunker, and he caught it by less orthodox means, it was still a catch!  We proudly hauled it up to the measuring table, where this fish checked in at 3.3 inches. 

After an hour or so with just modest nibbles, Mason moved on to the fishing pier a little further down the lake. 

Dane joined him soon after, and we spent the last hour trying to hook one of those irksome bait-stealers!

At the end of the day, we came away with 1 fish (3.3 inches!), three sunburns, but a lot of fun memories!

First Pay Check

Today is a big day for Clark! He got earned his first ever pay check from his first ever job at Schlotzsky's and was able to pick it up today after his shift!!!

It isn't much since it covers training and one long day day of work, but the next one will be bigger since he has picked up 3 shifts this week and has a long day this coming Sunday!

Congratulations, Clark!
