Ethan’s been loving playing soccer this season. He’s found his favorite position – stopper! He absolutely loves playing defense and has even managed to score a few goals from back there because he’s got quite the kick! And Micah is a fun fan. =)
Micah started playing flag football through the rec centers here. He’s loved it and definitely improved over the few weeks that the season ran. I was out of town for his first game, but Mike took lots of pictures and videos. They watched some game footage to help teach him about the game before his second night of games. And then his final games were cancelled due to weather, so we’ll see if he gets to make those up later. He prefers to play center, but he did get a couple running plays called for him and snagged at least one flag! Woot!
Ethan worked SO hard on his Memory Master challenge this year and was able to get the official title. This meant he had to memorize every fact for all 24 weeks of 7 subjects. He had to recall this information 3 different times. We opted to do one with Auntie Mel (SO thankful to live by these guys again!!). Then he was quizzed by a tutor at CC and then by the director. It was a pretty arduous process, but he loved it and was super excited by the challenge!
Micah began going to Speech therapy and is making great strides there already. He seems to enjoy it okay and is pretty determined to do his homework!
And Ethan played the prelude in church again – In Christ Alone. Another fun bonus to going to the same church as family, Aunt Mel took a video! =)
He also had his final piano recital of the year – he played two pieces (In the Hall of the Mountain King and something about pirates).
And Micah is wrapping up drum lessons for the year. Here’s one of the latest pictures I took when one of his friends from church wanted to sit in and listen.
