Character counts!

I have to brag for a minute..... :) My baby girl got an award for having awesome character! She got to have her name called (which by the way is a BIG deal for 1st graders) at an assembly. She also got a cool sign for her front yard. She gets to keep it for nine weeks and then another deserving child gets a turn. She is way excited. Her Daddy and I are super proud of her. Way to go baby girl! Keep up the great work....We love you!

Now, on to my oldest...We are super proud of him as well. He took up the trombone this year and while sometimes the sounds coming out of his room are questionable...he is keeping up with it. He practices 20 minutes a day and is pretty serious about it. He is also doing great in Jr. High. He acts like he has gone there for years. God is truly watching over him. I love that boy and sometimes when I look at him I can't believe he is mine. He is one great kid and I love him so much! This video is pretty funny....it is of him and the neighbor boy. They thought they would practice together. LOL!

I am smiling from ear to ear. As I usually do when I see my sweeties! I am very very, very, very proud of them both! They are just like their mommy and daddy and sweet, kind and full of character. Oh, and musically inclined!

Congrats to Macy for her award! And yes, it IS a very big deal to have your name called! The video of Reid cracks me up - especially the giggling in the background!!

I know you must be so proud of your wonderful children. That must have been so wonderful to see your sweet girl going up to the stage for her award. Oh, and Reid's 'practicing session' is truly classic! I wish I was a fly on the wall for that one! LOL!
