Lots of robots, including a giant fire-breathing one, and 3D printers were the highlights of this year’s Maker Faire. The boys had lots of fun looking at all the displays and making some hands on crafts.

Every other year, the “Life Lessons Character Counts” after-school program is taught by Turtleback’s own ninja kindergarten teachers, Mrs Flinn and Mrs Stamp. Gavin has now completed the program three times, but this was Connor’s first time graduating from the program. Both boys had a blast!

I was stuck in training at my new job, so I didn’t get to attend the Halloween parade this year at Turtleback. Luckily, Aliciana was on hand to take pictures of all the kids and their teachers dressed up.

Our boys looked cute dressed up as Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, two of their favorite MLB stars.
