Ethan turned 10 years old this month! Wow how time flies and how quickly kids grow up! In this post I'll tell you about a couple fun groups you can start when you hit the 4th grade. They are Cadets (similar to boy scouts) and 4-H. I'm there's more but those are the two Ethan is involved in.
This is Ethan on his birthday, playing lego's with his brothers and sisters.
Grandma VDB brought him over a birthday cake and a gift. This ramp has been so fun for all the kids! They had been launching small toys off it, until I had them relocate it to the shop. Now they are busy riding bikes over it.
This year Ethan will do poultry and lambs for his big projects at the fair. These cute little chicks hatched last week and we got them when they were just a day old.
I think Ethan will have some good help doing chores. :)
After settling the chicks in their new home we headed out to the wood shed to get a pin ready for the lambs.
Ethan had fun working on his first cadet car. He chose to make blue truck.
These are the cars for the 4th graders at our church.

The sheep are here! This little ewe is the sweetest little gal you'll ever find. She is so tame... and naughty! :) She just jumped right out of the back of the truck and Mark caught her in mid-air.
Rocky is the white one and Lucy the black. Although I'm not sure Ethan has approved "Lucy" as her name yet.
Yesterday Ethan, Amelia and I went to the Cadet-O-Rama. The kids had a fun time looking at each others cars and racing again. I must say there are some very impressive cars out there! Those pictured above are of the area 4th graders.
These are the sculpture projects Ethan's class displaced. They all got blue ribbons for their work!
