Shark Presentation at Chops School

Jeff, me and Heidi- a good friend that is a scuba diver as well- went to Choppies Pre-K Class and did a presentation on sharks since it was animal month this month.
Heidi had a presentation built already- that was really tailored for 5th+ graders- but we tailored it to kids and Jeff re-did the presentation adding more pics, etc..
Jeff did a great job presenting -and overall, it was just a ton of fun. It's a subject that is so close to our heart and that we are so passionate about- so its fun teaching others what we know and love.
We taught them things like sharks can swim backwards, they have 3 eyelids, they go through 30,000 teeth in a lifetime and more! The kids were so amazed...
We did activities with them like connect the dots, color the shark and gave them each 2 photos of sharks that jeff took pics of and the loved them. I baked shark/fish sugar cookies too which they gobbled up!
Here is a pic of us and the class. Mrs Diaz and the class had such a great time, they have invited us back in a couple of months where we will be doing a presentation on Life in our Pacific Waters- where we will be talking about what creatures they will find right off our own beaches! We are also going to do the shark presentation in May to 2 classes at our friend Nicole's school! So fun!

See Jeff Run!

Jeff actually came to my run club on Wednesday night - we all meet at mutt lynch's bar on Newport beach. He has come before but this time - he actually ran!!! I did 6 miles this night and so surprised about how good I felt (although the last mile was a bit tough)- but without Maggie pacing me- I couldn't have done it! Now... If I could just get Jeff to do a tri with me!

Chops 5th Birthday

Just wanted to post some pictures from this past weekend for Chop's 5th day birthday party. Despite everything else going on- we managed to host a party at the house-- with the HUGE help of Rose and Dave... Without them- we couldn't have done it! Thanks guys for ALL your help and for everyone who helped out at the party. It rained the day before AND after the party--but the day of the party we had beautiful weather! God was looking down on us. Oh- and since Ethan's birthday is on Halloween and we always dress up-- we threw Choppies a costume party in January! It was fun to see kids AND adults dressed up!
