All About Ethan

This post is all about Ethan. Jay and I are always saying how proud we are of Ethan and what a cool kid he is. But it is really neat when we realize that other people see Ethan that way too. Ethan got 2 awards at the awards ceremony at school. The first we knew about, he got 75 points in Accelerated Reader this year. That means he read over 150 books and took comprehension tests on them. This is no easy feat, as each book is only worth 1/2 a point if you answer all the questions correctly so he probably read more like 175 books. The 2nd award was a PE ALL-STAR award. He was really excited about this!! The PE teacher chooses one boy and girl from each grade level for this honor and Ethan was the 1st grade boy, isn't that so cool. Ethan is just really an awesome kid, I know I am biased as his mom but it is so great that other people notice him too. He is tough, and all-boy on the outside, but he has a very caring, sensitive soul. I can't wait to see what God has in store for Ethan, and how is going to use our special boy.
