Song of the Wind

Last Sunday Owen performed in the Academy of Fine Arts Spring Recital and here is one of the two songs he performed, "Song of the Wind."We have been super proud of how learning an instrument has stretched him mentally and physically and how he can look back over this year and see how he has grown. I look forward to see where this will continue to steer him with his God given talents, whether it be violin or something else.
Enjoy Far-away Family and Friends! video

Where did April go????

Our month has been filled with lots of fun. Starting with a big Sunday spread with friends that ended in an Easter egg hunt for all. Then the fellas and I took a spontaneous trip to Chattanooga one day so Daddy could get some school work done in quiet. We had a blast! We spent the morning at the Aquarium and then went to the Creative Museum and then finished our day at Coolige Park running and playing chase. Also you will see some pictures from one of our science activities. We have been Exploring Creation through astronomy this year and one activity was to create an edible space rover. Well, the making was a hit but the eating was WAY better!! Then most of our Saturdays have been spent encouraging and cheering Griffin and his new found friends on his soccer team. MOst of they were completely clueless when they started the season so it has been amazing to see their gifts and talents as well as watching them gel as a team!! Spring fun!
