First Grade at Solana Highlands
Taj started first grade, August 25th 2015
Unpredictable weekend before the first week of school and other stories
When they arrived back home dad noticed that there was water in the garage, which is not a good sign, the neighbors had another leaky pipe which was pooling into our garage. For the rest of the night dad got to supervise the plumber and for the following 4 nights there was a drying and humidifying unit in the house. These drying units caused temperatures to rise to the 90's inside the house!
Back to school, Taj had a great week at school, but mom caught whatever flu/cold he had and had to miss work on Friday. She picked him up from school on Friday and took him out for ice cream and slurpees at 7-Eleven. The weekend plans were packed with fun things to do. We planned to go to the last day of soccer practice, then hangout at the beach with friends for the afternoon. Well, soccer was great, Taj looked amazing, but the beach had to be closed because there was a hammer-head sharking sighting 100 yds off the beach shore. Later in the day we went to the beach and they were letting people in the water up to 10-15 yards (at least you could get wet), because the outside temperature was 91 degrees. Sunday was so hot we all decided to go see a movie. Kara and Taj saw Inside Out for the 3rd time while I saw Ant-Man.
