Fall Leaves

Mike snapped this picture of Griffin and Jasper playing in the leaves yesterday. Griffin would hide in the leaves and Jasper would stick his head under the leaves to try and find him.

Griffin's Report Card

Very proud of Griffin's first report with grades! 2 A's and 3 B's. Especially proud of the B he earned in math as that seems to be the subject he struggles with the most. Way to go buddy! We are very proud of you.

ENT Visit

We took Griffin to see the ENT yesterday and he is recommending he have his tonsils and adenoids removed. The surgery is scheduled for Friday, December 21st. He would have to be out of school for a week and scheduling this during Christmas break is our best option. I feel bad he will miss out on his Christmas party at school, but we will make it up to him.

Griffin Made The Paper - YMCA Swim Lessons

Griffin and his classmates were on the front page of The Goochland Gazette! Not only that he and his friend Eddie were featured inside and interviewed! I was also quoted in the article (although they spelled my name incorrectly). This is so cool!

Griffin's Little Critter Book Report.

This is Griffin's latest school project.

A book report on his favorite book "The Lost Dinosaur Bone".

He had to create "paper treats" that included the name/author of the book, main characters, setting, problem, solution and finally a summary.

He also had to make a "treat bag" to put the paper treats in.

Then finally he had to decorate a pumpkin to look like the main character of the book.

He did such an *awesome* job!!

Griffin's Wild Animal Habitat Project.

Griffin turned in his "Wild Animal Habitat Project" on Friday.
He decided to do his on the honey badger.

This is his written report:

My report is on the honey badger. The honey badger is black and white. He is a member of the weasel family. He has fur, thick skin, sharp claws, sharp teeth, strong jaws and a long tail. They weigh between 15 and 29 pounds.

The honey badger lives in the dry grasslands and forests of Africa and Asia. They live alone in a self dug hole called a burrow.

Their favorite food is honey. It uses team work to find honey. A bird called a honey guide finds a bee hive but can not get into it. The bird guides the honey badger to the hive and then the honey badger breaks it open and eats. It has thick skin so if the bees sting him he is okay. It will back up to the bee hive and spray a stinky smell from under it’s tail and it is like a bee repellent. The honey badger is a predator and also eats snakes, porcupines, hares, tortoises, scorpions, termites, earth worms, lizards, fruits and berries.

Because the honey badger has thick skin they can be bitten by a king cobra or black mamba snake and they will still live.

The Guiness Book of World Records has recognized the honey badger as the most fearless animal in the world.

Griffin had his first karate lesson ...
