Before I get to weekend updates, I wanted to do a quick update on life from last week.
Ethan competed in his first pinewood derby race. His car didn’t do all that well, so he was a bit disappointed. We had some good chats about trying something new, learning from the past, asking people for their guidance in the future, etc. etc. Anyway, I think it was a great experience and it was lots of fun to see all of the cars!
We finished week 22 of CC (only 2 weeks left!!). Ethan gave a presentation on “The Hobbit” – our most recent read-aloud book. It’s not his most flattering picture, but I really like his outfit and can’t get over how old he looks!
Micah gave his presentation on some of his Legos. I received this email from his tutor afterwards: “His presentation made my day yesterday. It went on for at least ten minutes and his face was completely lit up the whole time. My favorite part was his explanation of the ninja warriors fighting the city people (one of whom was in a wheelchair). :)”
Micah sometimes wears these glasses for school because they make everything look prettier:
Last Friday, Aunt Ashley and Caleb came over for a little picnic and time at the park! Caleb went down the slide by himself and had Ethan to catch him. He was cracking us up with all of his, “uh oh!” remarks anytime the boys fell or pretended to fall.
Next up…my retreat!
