Every year during the month of November Laie Elementary holds a big race. Weeks before the race children in each class race each other. Three kids (3boys,3girls) from each class gets chosen to represent their classroom. On Turkey Trot day those kids run against the other chosen candidates from the whole grade. Mateo was the fastest in his class. On Turkey Trot day, had he known where the finish line was he probably would have taken first place but he took second out of the whole grade! WOhOOOO way to go Teo! You rock! He brought home a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner. We are sooooo proud of him!

This years Halloween was a new experience. Laie Halloweens' are quite amazing. People come from all over Oahu because its safer here. Most of the bulk of Trick or Treaters stay in two streets Iosepa and Moana. The masses were daunting. The kids had a blast. Over and out.

At Laie Elamentary each month a coupple of kids per class get chosen to be Super Citizen. They are give this honor :-)if they have shown excellence not only academically but mostly for going out of their way to be helpful and good. In other words for 'Good Citizenship". It is a big deal around here. They have a school assembly and some parents, aunts and uncles stay up late at night making millions of candy leis for their little heroes.
Claudia was Super Citizen in September and Mateo was for October. I tell you what! I am getting better at making candy leis. Hooray for my Super Citizens!

Laura our firstborn turned 9!
I cannot believe how grown up she is. She is turning into a little senorita along with her cousins. She is a huge help for me with Saul. She wants me to have ten more babies so she can take care of them. We shall see. Maybe in the next life. Or better yet, Laura: YOU can have ten kids and take are of them too. That would be wonderful. She actually says she want to have many children. I personally believe she would do a fantastic job! Laura is responsible and her teachers at school cannot say enough good things about her. She also loves to exercise. Whenever her dad goes to the BYU-I indoor track she always wants to go with him. Even if it is at 5am! What a bundle of joy she is. A cannot believe it has almost been 10 years!
