time with friends

We love spending time with friends.  In late spring we went hiking up by Moulton Falls with the Walls.  He had a really fun time and some good inside jokes were made.

We also got together with the Williams' and the Ravert's.  We were supposed to go hiking but ended up hanging out the whole time at the park.  We played a games and even got a game of kickball going with kids and parents.  It was a ton of fun! 

We love having good friends to do things with!

End of 4th Grade

At the end of the school year Brooklyn was in her 4th Grade music performance.  They also gave out awards.  The kids earned belts for each song that they learned and mastered.  The first half of the songs they learned in class and the second half they had to teach themselves at home along with a new note every song.  Brooklyn earned her black belt.  That was the highest they could go.

This is Brooklyn being called up for earning an award.  I don't remember which one. 

All the kids learned a few songs.

They played the highest level song that they passed off.  So this is Brooklyn with 3 other students who earned their black belt.  This was out of the whole 4th Grade.  I video taped her performance but I couldn't get it to load on here. 

Brooklyn earned 2 awards that night.
