We sure had a lot of fun in March. Here's Ben pretending to be Sierra. Andrew had just gotten done holding Sierra and when I turned around from putting her down, Ben had crawled onto Andrew's lap.
Of course, Andrew then didn't want to be left out of the fun and had to climb onto Ben's lap. These boys have SO much fun together! We had several sunny days in March, so Bob and Ben decided to do more than just stick their feet in. As you can tell, Ben thought it was a little cold. Probably around 65. (We don't have a pool heater , you don't need one when it gets over 100 several days during the summer).
He decided that sticking his feet in the waterfall was just right!

While Ben was enjoying the water, Andrew was participating in the school play. The Missoula Children's Theater Company came to Andrew's school and Andrew was able to be part of the cast. The best part, SEVERAL of his friends were also cast. So he was able to do something fun with his friends. It was GREAT! They performed a loosely based version of Robinson Crusoe...VERY loosely based on the book.
here we have Ambree Butler, Amy Jensen, and Braden Peterson in the back, with Davin Peterson, Sydney Butler, Andrew Borland and Lily, a girl from Andrew's class in the front. They were part of the Hula dancing Color changing Chameleons! As you can see, the front of their costumes change color.

Andrew, Sydney and girl I don't know, had a separate little part. They walked on stage, waved to the audience then Andrew and Lily walked off while Sydney stayed and waved. Then the other two waged their fingers at her and came back to pull her off stage. It was SO cute and he LOVED being able to do something different and special.

Here they are showing us what chameleons do...pinch their fingers and stick their tongues in and out.
All of the Hula dancing color changing chameleons.

What a GREAT experience for Andrew. He LOVES to perform and be on stage. It made it ALL the better that he was able to do it with several of his friends.
