From Daddy: We love you and loved seeing you last weekend, Baby Isaac!
With the announcement of American Ninja Warrior Junior, he’s been inspired to train again. Above is a video from two evenings ago or click youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kf1E_Xd2gzI.
From Daddy: The boy and I had a great time at the California Academy of Sciences yesterday! We entered at 10, an hour reserved for members only. We got a junior scientist pack with which to explore the museum. We catch a brief demonstration to junior scientists about how fish fill their bladders with air to float or sink at https://www.calacademy.org/events/programs/junior-scientist-adventure-live-science-experience-3.
But then we saw Claude, the albino alligator move! He almost never moves! This is the most we have seen him move in all our years combined! See the video above or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBzcy6Hahos.
This was perfectly timed to allow us to see the penguin feeding https://www.calacademy.org/events/programs/penguin-feeding-3. The video is below or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2em8NnvwOQk
Then we encountered and touched a moon jelly at https://www.calacademy.org/events/programs/jelly-encounter! Then we had a 3-D Tour of the Universe (we never saw that before) https://www.calacademy.org/events/programs/3d-tour-of-the-universe!
Shortly afterward, we watched a scuba diver and feeding at the coral reef exhibit https://www.calacademy.org/events/programs/coral-reef-dive-3.
Also, we examine minerals and watched colorful finches!
From Daddy: One of the funniest moments of the trip was a badminton game (click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STq71OoowtM). When his Chinese teacher joined, the kids–who were journaling off to the left–were suddenly spectators. Just before I recorded this video, the kids were loudly cheering “YAY!” whenever the teacher volleyed and “BOO!” whenever the birdie was returned. During a long volley, this was hilarious.
From Daddy: Last week, from Wednesday through Friday, his fourth-grade class had a camping field trip in the Gold Country. One of the fun activities Thursday evening including a water balloon toss and later a water balloon fight. His (and many other students’) favorite target was his teacher.
