End of the Year in Jr. High

Caiden's 6th grade year is almost over, but before it ends, he had a couple of events to get through - the Band & Choir Concert and the league track meet.  Caiden has loved band this year, and I think he's even on track to keep up with it all through high school - which I'm very happy about!

6th grade choir - not Caiden's favorite!
Track ended on a high note for him - he was the league champion in 6th/7th grade boys triple jump!  But even more importantly, he reached a goal he had set for himself - to break 31 feet.  In fact, he had a jump of 31'4"!  He also got to compete in two relays that day with 2nd and 3rd place finishes - the 4x200 m relay and the medley relay.  He hadn't done any relays the whole season, so they spent quite a bit of time working on hand-offs!

Timothy hands off to Caiden - they finished 2nd in the
4x200.  (all 6th graders, I might add)

  It's been a fun finish to quite a transitional year - for Mom and Caiden both!
