Elijah Life in Colorado

Elijah emails his friends and Kealing teachers

I wanted to let everyone know how I have been. Right now in Boulder, it is snowing and about 15 degrees.

Feb 21 Snow

At my school, we recently entered the world record for largest performed cell mitosis. In French, we have been working on clothes, and have recently started working on activities and vacation time. In History, we obviously don’t study Texas, so we are working on east-southeast Asia and Australia and New Zealand.

In English, we are reading Bud Not Buddy, and are working on preparing for our TCAP (Colorado STAAR or TAKS). In Algebra, my class has just finished our unit on exponents, scientific notation, and adding, subtracting, multiplying polynomials, as well as solving polynomial equations.

In Science, we have started our CSI unit, after studying genetics. I also am a teacher assistant for the sixth grade history teacher, and I am in 3D Art.

I enjoy hiking and snowshoeing during my free time. I have made 4 friends at my new school, Zach, Peter, Colin, and Vinu.

I can’t wait to come to Texas and hopefully visit Kealing before school in Austin is out.

Your student, friend, and classmate,
Elijah Vance

Life in Colorado

Greetings from Colorado

Yes, it’s been a long while since we updated our family site. We plan to keep this site updated more often to share photos and stories of our new life in Boulder, Colorado. Check back often as each of us takes a turn to share a tidbit from life in Boulder.

For now, enjoy this photo from our family portrait session in October 2012. Notice anything funny?

The below pictures are to wet your whistle on how amazingly beautiful it is here in Boulder. I hope you don’t get sick of us posting stunning scenery.

This is Boulder Creek all frozen and winter-like.

This is Elijah and Joshua on our ascent up Mount Sanitas. If one wants to be a true Boulderite, one must hike Mount Sanitas.

Eager for more pictures? No worries. We’ve got you covered here.

Want more stories? Leave a comment on what you want to hear about. We’ve got some posts planned, but we want to share what you all want to know about.
