No matter what you call it: soccer or football; goal is one word used in this sport that is universal for score! Paco has been practicing scoring lately. He loves to kick the ball into the net for a goal. Have you ever made a goal in soccer? The goal keeper, or goalie, is the person who tries to stop balls from going into the net and prevent a score. The goalie is the only person on a team who can use their hands but Paco still thinks it is one of the hardest positions to play. What position do you play or would you play in soccer?
Paco's latest activity is a fun twist on the job of a goalie! See if you can spot all ten differences in the pictures below. There are no balls in the net so this green bird is doing a great job defending. Have fun!
What a great time Paco has been having with his new Rock Wall. He's climbing to new heights almost everyday. Do you like to climb? Paco was so motivated by the rock wall he made that he was inspired to create some Motivational Posters. He's already hung two in his room. Which ones will you choose to hang? Download all four posters from the link below.
Keep climbing friends and always dream BIG.

While Paco was at the airshow, he was seeing more than just planes in the air! He saw clouds! So many clouds. Clouds that were already in the sky and also clouds that were made by jets as they soared above! It is amazing how clouds can form so many shapes up in the sky. Look at these photos, what do you see?

Cruising around on a 4-wheeler is such a fun way to see the outdoors! Paco loved his trek through the mud on his friend's machine this week. Off roading is a great way to spend the day and being safe by following rules when riding will help ensure you have a great time.
To learn a few safety rules of the off road world, give Paco's latest word search a try: OFF-ROAD SAFETY! Can you find all the words that help remind us of safety tips? Have fun.
Did you know a Big Rig is a large truck with 18 wheels? This week Paco rode in a Big Rig with his friend Sergio. Did you see his postcard? Sergio helped Paco count all 18 wheels on his truck. With four, six, or up to 18 wheels, trucks are great machines that help to move things where they need to go! Next time you see a Big Rig or any type of delivery truck, give the driver a wave and say thanks. From big trucks to small trucks, and postal trucks to hot dog trucks; all trucks help make the world go round!
Check out Paco's LET'S MAKE TRUCKS activity to make your own set of paper trucks. Have fun!
Using building blocks and your imagination can be hours of fun. Paco built a tower that was 10 blocks high this week! It took a lot of time to make it that high without tipping over, but he kept at it and made it to his goal. Do you like to build things? You don't have to use blocks to build! You can use lots of different items. Cardboard boxes, lunch boxes, or even books. These things paired with your imagination and you could build almost anything. Check out Paco's Building Block Challenge to get some ideas.

Check out Paco's Move Like an Animal Workout so you can try some new calisthenics that will have you moving like an animal!

Tires for automobiles are very important, you might even say they make the world go 'round! What a great day Paco had last week at his friend Ace's tire shop. He helped change a tire on a car. It was a great sense of accomplishment. After Ace got Paco's postcard this week he called to explain the lug nuts on the wheel. Paco loved the word lug nut. Isn't it great? The lug nut actually goes on a bolt to hold the wheel on the car! It acts as fastener, or connector. Paco just loves to learn new things!
