Before I even get to summer, I've been meaning to post an update from this past spring! I've tried unsuccessfully to edit a short video clip, so, instead I'll just add some pictures. In April we went to Isaiah's Place for the dedication of the new barn. It was a wonderful weekend and especially memorable because the barn was named in honor of Tanner! What a special time for us, and so fun to see the surprise on Tanner's face when he realized it was his name on the barn.
Another spring event was that Tanner completed the 3rd grade successfully and passed both the reading and math TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) tests!!! This meant that he was able to start summer 2 weeks earlier than I had planned! We were all somewhat surprised and also thrilled that he passed!
In June, we attended Family Weekend Retreat at the Texas School for the deaf where Tanner loved spending time with other deaf children.
Also during June, Tanner completed 2 weeks of swimming lessons, loving every minute! He was excited to complete the seahorse level this year and move up to the crocodiles next year.
