Mike, his dad and some friends were part of a 12 person team that ran the Ragnar this weekend. It is a relay race from Logan to Park City, Ut that is 188 miles and took their team abot 32 hours to complete. Part of the novelty of this race, is coming up with a creative team name and dressing up to run and decorating the vehicles. They were the Scipio Hog Callin' Time Runners. They played "music" at the start line before the race and drew a lot of attention to themselves and ended up being voted most likeable team ( or something to that affect) and will be receiving trophees for it! Mike had a great time and will probably run again next year. We were really proud of all the work he put into preparing for the race, he is awesome!
Hyrum's class had a parents day last week where they invited a parent to come and see what they have been doing all year. His teacher had a memory book for each student and we watched a DVD slideshow of all they have done this year. The kids had made me an apron with their names signed on it as a thank you for helping in the classroom this year. I can't believe Hyrum has graduated from kindergarden, I will have so many special memories of the past year.
Ethan finished up spring soccer and had a fun team party where he received a medal. It is nice to be done with soccer and cub scouts for the summer. He still has piano and swim lessons to keep him busy though.
Ethans class learned a lot about the Westward movement and had a hoedown and mock Oregon trail hike just before school ended. They sewed the hats and skirts they are wearing- it was quit the project but I enjoyed being a part of it. Mike got to be there the day of the hike. Ethan really had a good year and will be moving on to fourth grade next year!
