Gymnastics Meet

The boys had their end-of-year gymnastics meet yesterday. They did a great job, and each came in second in his category.

Rainy Swim Meet

The boys' end of year swim meet for their club was held in the outdoor pool, since the indoor one was being resealed. We were fortunate to avoid the storms, but the rain was there, and it was cold! (Just ask the time-keepers!)

It was one of the shortest meets ever, with each kid doing just one race, and no relays. After the races, we dashed back inside for snacks, and to say goodbye to the boys' coach, whose contract wasn't renewed. Their competition group met up again in the evening for a picnic to end the season - and we even got one little ray of sunshine.

End of School - almost

As the end of school draws near, we were invited to the school show, where we got to see Benjamin's amazing plate-spinning and ring-juggling skills.

Noah's class showed us they were aware of differences in the world, with illustrations of how some children are required to work from a young age, and others are able to go school, or how we have running water readily available here, but others must walk miles to get it.

They did a great job! In September, it will be on to 6th grade (middle school!) for Benjamin, and 4th grade for Noah, in our village now, with a new teacher.
