Evan - 10-1/2

Summer has arrived at the Ross household!! We are all looking forward to a great summer following a great school year!

Evan is 10-1/2 and just finished up 4th grade. We has another great year filled with lots of learning at home and out in the world. Our big change this year came around Christmas, when we switched from online school to true homeschool. I think we are all enjoying the new way. Evan is doing great as usual - he is flying through Pre-Algebra and science, and his writing is really seeing awesome improvement. I have been blessed to have Poppy help me out teaching. At co-op, he really enjoyed his classes - Sea Creatures, gym, art, and Classic Lit book club. (I enjoyed teaching Algebra I and II.)

For sports, Evan has been rocking soccer his fall and spring seasons! We love to watch him play, and he has a pretty great coach (Dad)! He decided not to play basketball, and instead is taking a boys athletic tumbling/ninja warrior class. He loves it and is learning to flip and jump all over the basement. He has a great front and back tuck on the trampoline!

He has gotten really strong - learned to mow the grass, is helpful carrying things. I think he's stronger then me. :) The COSI strength test may have proved it. 

He has also continued on with Scouts - with only 1/2 a year left until he moves to Boy Scouts. :( We love all the activities including Pinewood Derby and campouts. We have really grown to love all the boys and families in the group. 

Evan still has his two best buddies, and has added Kelly to his friends to skype and play online with. He is either very active - running around like crazy - or happy to be playing on his computer. And, if we are ever near water, Evan is instantly wet!

Evan continues to be an awesome big brother. We have loved having both kids home this year - it's been great seeing the bond with each other grow. 

Evan is continuing to grow into an awesome young man! He is a great thinker, and can be so sweet. We are blessed to have him as our son!!
