This is the third year we have sent our letter to keep everyone informed. It has been another busy year with new jobs, a trip to San Francisco, and other exciting news. We hope you enjoy! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
GARDNER EDGERTON BASKETBALL (March)
This year Farron had the opportunity to be the GIrl's Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach. The team went 17-5 overall on the season and finished out the season in the Sub-State Championship. The girls finished the year ranked in the top 10 in the state and top 20 in the entire region. It was an exciting and accomplished season! #BlazerNation
OLATHE EAST HAWKS SOFTBALL (May)
This year Farron was also the JV Coach for the Olathe East Hawks Softball team and helped with the Varsity on their journey through the regional and state tournaments. The girls finished with a 20-5 overall record and the 6A State-Runner Up. The team advanced all the way to the State Tournament Final before falling to Olathe NW 6-5 in 7 innings. An amazing game and a fun and successful season! #AllOutAllTheTime
WOMEN'S COLLEGE WORLD SERIES (May)
In what has become somewhat of a tradition we were able to go to the WCWS as well. Our timing and luck of the weather could not have worked out better! We were able to go see some family and friends and watch some great softball.
NEW JOBS (Summer)
Megan has moved from teaching 5th grade in Belton, Missouri to teaching 2nd grade in the rapidly growing Spring Hill School District. The school is half a mile from our house. It is really nice and she is loving it! Farron has moved from teaching Social Studies at Trail Ridge Middle School in the Gardner-Edgerton District to teaching Geography and World HIstory at Gardner-Edgerton HIgh School. He is in the brand new freshman wing. He loves his new position within the district. Farron will also continue to be the Girl's Assistant Varsity Coach and coach C-Team softball for the Blazers.
SAN FRANCISCO (July)
We had the opportunity to take a trip to the wonderful San Francisco this summer! Our favorite activity was the tour of Alcatraz. The audio tour done by previous guards and inmates was fantastic. We toured through Muir Woods, took a trip to Sonoma, visited Fisherman's Wharf and the Ferry Building, walked through Chinatown, had a fun night at the Exploratorium exploring science, and enjoyed a walk through Golden Gate Park. It was a one of a kind trip!
MASTER'S DEGREE (December)
Megan has received her Master's in Education with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction from Baker University! Megan worked hard for two years and finished a great accomplishment!
ADDITION TO THE FAMILY (Next June)
In certainly our most exciting news we will be adding a BABY BOY to our family in June 2018! We could not be more excited for this adventure together! Pistol is unsure about this news and does not know it will be a boy.
