Raymond!! Ray was very good this first year of soccer. He wasn’t afraid to get in and get the ball and he scored lots of goals every game. He could almost score at will. One game he was tired and wanted to know when it was over. I said not until he scored 3 more goals. So, he went and scored 3. His team didn’t practice much but he and Noah Drake started to become friends by the end, and the twins and coach Derek were fun to play with.

Benji is done at Manila!
He is excited. He and Seth. But he didn’t want me to run around and find his friends (Tye, Hyram, Ryan,..) and get pictures…
Some of his best friends even though they are not 6th graders:
Hope of America Award! at the Dance Festival Benji got awarded the Hope of America! His teacher loved that he always participated in everything! I want a well rounded young man when all is said and done so that made me proud.
Benji also had really good grades all year. A’s in everything and he did it all on his own. Once in a while he would ask me to help get supplies for big projects but that’s about it.
I went to field Day with Rose. It was fun to see her in her element having a good time with school friends.
Rose and Cammi. They met at Discovery park the week before Kindergarten started and they hit it off. Then they ended up in the same class! Now they are friends. Play dates and all!
Rose and Gentry and Gabriella and …
It was fun to see Rose in action. She didn’t need me at all and she had lots of little friends to go between.
at the end of the day I brought her and Gentry home and took a last day picture!
The last week of school was also the last week of soccer so Ben decided to do soccer parties at the house instead of practice!
So for 4 nights in a row we had the soccer friends over! We made Popcorn and Kool Aid and turned the arcades on!
We also ran around outside and played Laser Tag. All the kids seemed to enjoy it:
Tea Party with ellie
Mini arcades are fun too – right Lily?
and dinner at Texas Roadhouse with Pete, Amanda, and Lily
My soccer Saturday crew
and watching coach Ben do his thing
Ice Cream for goal Scoring!
