The grand finale to the sixth grade year at C's school is Rocket Day. The whole class (and a lot of parents) travel to Bong Recreation Area to launch the rockets that they've worked on in Science class. After the launches (and recovery missions), they have a picnic lunch and go swimming.
Since my mom is visiting, G. and I *both* got to go to Rocket Day. Some pictures:
C. and her friend E. (we rode up with E's parents)
E's dad--taking pictures and video of the day
bug spray (not too many mosquitos--LOTS of ticks!)
