Art Therapy

During group therapy today one of our therapist Nathan, did an awesome group where the students made 2 sided masks!! One side was what they thought they looked like and the other one was what they thought everyone else thought they looked like. Here are a few pics of what they came up with..
 Here is Alec working hard on his.
 It was really cool to see everyone working together on them and giving each other "tips" on what to draw.
 This was a really happy looking face..
 Is this meaning he is blushing all the time?? This one turned out very nice.
 Eric was doing an amazing job on his masks.
This was one of the masks that the students thought other people thought of him. It is supposed to be a "shady character".
This is Nathan finishing up the group. The boys really liked the group and had some really good insight as well.

Golf Course work project

 We had a service project at Kokapelli golf course today. It was really fun we were able to see the entire golf course and the amazing views!! It was hard work and in the blazing heat!! Most of the boys have a really good work ethic and attitude about helping others...Here are a few pics of the service project...
 This was after the service project right by the club house!
 Here is a picture of one of the students working hard....This is a effect on the camera but thought it looked cool..
 Here is a couple of students walking across the course after raking a sand pit. This picture shows how hot is was there!
 These 2 guys were just finishing up the sand trap and taking a bit of a break..
Here we are all lined in our golf carts.. The boys enjoyed this part the most....
It looked like were in some sort of parade!! But it was really fun..

Black and White Scrimmage

White team trying to look tough.
Black at their best.
Do the chickens have sharp tallons? It was a game about who could catch the chicken the fastest.
Taking care of business. The champion.
Don't try this at home. Fitting as many marshmallows in your mouth as they can and saying chubby bunny afterwards.
Chubby bunny!
Team Diamondbacks. Preparing to get ready for the road to take state!
Bring the "big hair bands" back. Nick was the true headbaning champion.( he had a pedometer tied to his head and had to get as many counts on it as he could by moving his head)
Teach me how to dougie!! Ryan showing people how to dance.
Its harder then you think. Catching oreos in your mouth from your fourhead.
