Chapel Award

Anderson was recognized with the chapel award.  It's always fun to hear what the teacher's notice about them.  She called out his responsibility...which is something we've been focusing really hard on at home.  I hope and pray that he continue to improve.

We got a bonus for our time in chapel...Owen's strings group performed too.

Anderson's recent artwork...radeachon = radiation.  HA!

Baseball - Pirates

Owen's confidence got quite a boost this fall season.  He played 1st, 3rd and even pitched a couple of times.  He batted much better than in prior seasons.  It was fun to watch him enjoy himself.

Baseball - Riverdogs

Anderson's baseball season got off to a late start due to his surgery, but he was back to full strength in just a couple of weeks.  Both kids had good coaches and enjoyed the season

 He loved playing catcher.

Anderson decided that he'd like to add a little drama to the start of 3rd grade by getting an appendectomy.  He was such a brave little guy through the entire ordeal.  He's definitely a tough cookie...and all male...he tried not to take his pain medicine!

Poor little guy overnight prior to surgery.  We were all completely exhausted.  The hospital is not a place of rest!

Waiting for an ultrasound to check his appendix.  This kid has his daddy's pain tolerance...who smiles that big with appendicitis?!

In pre-op...broke my heart to leave him to head back to surgery.

At home during recovery.  He's such a trooper!

Back to School - 3rd and 5th

Just like that, the summer is over and it's time to head back to school.  The kids (and parents) were happy with teacher assignments and classmates.
