To Farm School and back!

The fourth grade GaTE class at Paine spent the last three days and two nights at Camp McDowell, for farm school. I picked Bilal up after school today, obviously tired but very excited. He did not stop talking about his experience until I finally got the exhausted little guy into bed this evening. While he was at Camp, we received a couple of group photographs of the kids and their chaperones via email.

When he came back he was excited to show off his souvenirs. It is definitely great to have him home.

And after Hamza came home, they spent some time in the back yard, trying out the new frisbee. Hamza has been playing a lot of ultimate frisbee lately, and he was trying to instill his technique in Bilal. I think there's still a lot of work to be done, but I did get a smile for the camera from Hamza, and those are rare!

In other news, Hamza really has something to smile about. He received his acceptance letter today from the University of Alabama's Engineering School. One down, two to go, before he has to make up his mind where he will be going to school next year. We are very proud of all the effort he has put into his studies over the past four years!
