Looking back at the month of May, I realize now how much was focused on our dear sweet Ethan. To begin we were so proud of him at how well he did at his piano recital. He loves taking lessons and rarely complains when I ask him to practice. In fact it was his idea to even start taking piano 3 years ago. when he asked if he could start taking lessons we didn't even own a piano. He practiced on a keyboard for the first year so we could see if he was going to take it serious enough to purchase a piano. 3 years later he is still loving it.
We were again proud of Ethan this month when he received his Webelos and his Arrow of light in the scouting program. He earned 19 out of 20 activity badges, which shows how much he really enjoys it. I can't believe he will be in the Boy Scouts now. When the boys receive their arrow of light they cross a bridge showing their advancement into the Boy Scouts. Then they get to sign their name on the bridge. It was a special day for Ethan. They also presented him with a shadow box that holds all of his badges he has earned as a boy scout.
Ethan also had his 11th birthday. I can't believe how fast he is growing up. He was just dying to get an air soft gun so he can battle with the neighbor kids.
This is Ethan and his friend Kaden posing as Wilbur and Orville Wright for school. The 5th grade had the kids dress up like someone in American History. Then they posed like wax figures as we walked through their "wax museum." I was amazed how well the kids did at holding still acting like they were wax figures.
We are very proud of Ethan and all his accomplishments. He is such a joy to have in our lives. He definitely keeps us laughing.
