Garyn had Mrs. Elrod for 4th grade. He liked his class and was with several kids he had been in class with before.
He ran cross country and track again this year.
He was able to decrease his running time to less than 8 mins.
For the first time, Garyn played football last fall. Tyler was an assistant coach for the team. It was a fun, learning season for him. The number 52 was Tyler's number in high school; it was neat to see him with "Rich" on the back as well. He says he wants to play again next year and eventually play college at UTK! Big dreams!
He also did Science Olympiad for the second time. While he didn't place in any event, he and TJ, his teammate, barely missed the mark.
Garyn played basketball for the 4th-5th grade Basketball school team. Tyler coached him and they had a good season. Garyn has gotten better at defense and offense being much more focused; in tune with the game and where he needed to be.
Garyn played 9/10 baseball this spring and while they didn't have a winning season, they played hard and came close several games. Garyn has gotten really good at being the catcher.
Ansley had Ms. Dent this year. Garyn had also had her in 1st grade.
Ansley did really well learning to read more fluently. She struggled some in math but will be doing some tutoring this summer to help her stay on track.
Ansley hopes to play basketball for the school next year. She played for Upward this winter to get herself prepared for next year.
Ansley also played soccer for the first time. She hadn't ever asked before but seems to be getting into sports more. She catches on quick; never complaining about practice or games.
Layne also had a great year in preschool. He continued at Rechoboth in the 3 year old room since he will be going to Kindergarten just after turning 6 years old. He loved having Brinkley in his class.
After Christmas time, he started asking if he could go to school on days he wasn't supposed to. So he started attending Stuart Heights preschool program 1 day a week; meaning he went a total of 3 days a week to "school".
Layne started learning to write his name well this past year. We also worked on counting to 30 and reading some sight words. Layne recognizes at least half of the alphabet letters now, as well.
Layne played baseball for his first time this spring. He absolutely loved it and did well.
Now we get to enjoy summer hoping it never ends!
