Trey’s Last Pinecrest Children’s Choir Concert

Trey got one last choir performance in before we left Cordele.

On to 3rd Grade!

Trey has officially been promoted to 3rd grade and started his summer vacation. He came home from his last day of school loaded with awards and goodies. He received medals for math, good behavior and two for reading. He also got an “Accelerated Reader” certificate & t-shirt as well as the results from his standardized tests. We were very proud of him for exceeding standards in all three areas (Reading, Math, Language). We’re proud of our little boy genius.

Last Upward Soccer Game

Trey wrapped up his soccer season with his last Upward game at the Crisp County Recreation Center. We’re so glad we enrolled Trey and are thankful to First Baptist Cordele for organizing the program. Trey learned not only the rules of the game but how to be a good sport and do his best.

Upward Sports Soccer

Trey has never done any organized sports before. He loves playing outside and is extremely active but we’ve never been able to commit the time to a league with practices and games. With our upcoming move to Africa we figured he needed a good primer in the rules of football – yea, I said it real football.

Upward Sports is one of the best options out there for organized sports that aren’t focused on competition. Their focus is instead on Christian character building.

After initially complaining about going to practice, Trey told me after his first Upward practice that he loved it. “But…,” he said, “I don’t think games will be as fun.” After his first game? “When is our next game?”
