On Friday, Matthew represented his school in the Dallas Regional "Math Olympics."  He had to win in 2 other competitions before he got here -- first at the school level-- then another test at the District level.  At this big Regional competition, there were over 30 different schools participating from Dallas/Ft. Worth and other surrounding areas -- probably 200 kids or more?  Here he is with the other 4th graders from other schools that he was competing against.   
Only 9 students from our school actually made it to this Regional level, so we were very proud of them!! They got to skip school for the day and spend the whole day at Prestonwood Baptist Church -- a church here in Dallas that is so huge it is sometimes affectionately called "Fort God"!!   He earned a blue Excellent Ribbon, and had a really fun day with the other FCA MATHLETES!! 


It is such a blessing that we can still compete in events like this, since we are still going to FCA part time.  On March 8th Matty will be representing FCA again -- in the Fine Arts competition.  He will be playing 2 piano solos -- both songs are from Charlie Brown movies.  I will try to take a video of his performance that day, and post it here next week!
