Busy Busy Busy Days!

May was a Busy Month!  Besides the two birthdays, there were the odds and ends of school activities...this year, Barb, the kindergarten teacher, had all the kinders and any moms who wanted to join them out to her house for a swim party!
Barb, our hostess
(side note...Barb taught me in 3rd grade
at the MK school in Colombia before spending 
quite a few years in the Philippines!  She has now
spent several years here in Mexico teaching
MKs, some of whom are children of
former students, like Jojo!)

The pool was small, but lots of fun!

Then there was the Awards Ceremony and Graduation Day for Binimea, our MK school.  

The 1st and 2nd grade class performed a song
they learned in Music Class.  Gracia was quite nervous,
but did very well! 

Gracia receiving an award for Bible memorization. (yes, 
everyone is looking at me waiting for me to take the picture).
She received the Reading Award as well for reading
at least one book very six weeks
over the course of the school year.

Micah also received several awards for Bible memorization,
Bible reading (he read the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke), 
and the Reading Award for reading 20 books over the course 
of the school year.

JD received a letter for playing on the basketball team.
And while he did not receive other awards, I did want
to mention that he read 18 books during the school
year, which is way more than he usually reads!  
We are proud of the hard work he did in his first
year at Binimea and his grades exceeded expectations!
