January flew this year! I cannot believe how close we are to February - it feels like we just had Christmas! All is pretty good in the Sprague household. My cute boys are back in swimming and doing so much better now that they're in two days a week. It makes us busy, but they are so much nicer kids when they're getting exercise - especially this kid!
One big event over the past few weeks was the Reflections Ceremony. Ethan made an awesome picture of the Olympics - so proud of him and how hard he worked!
Another big event was our assembly on Tolerance. Ethan was part of a reading of the poem/story "The Crayon Box that Talked". He did a great job and those cute kids were a hit! There was more narration - and I was pretty proud of the way it all came out (I wrote it). I think it's important for kids to learn about some of the great people throughout history who have shown tolerance and love!
On a sad note - one of Ethan's teammates had to drop out as they discovered around Christmas that he has Hodgkin's Lymphoma. It's heartbreaking, and we're doing what we can to support his family and send him smiles. I can't imagine what his mama is going through! Ethan's had a hard time with it - though he probably still doesn't totally get the severity. So even though we've been hit with a bit of a cold and various bugs - we're feeling oh so thankful for our health this month. For all you that are praying folk - send out your prayers for our friend Ethan G.!
And now I'll head back into my chores and school work - so much going on!
