It's beginning to look a lot like summer...
* Madison was blessed to have a fabulous choir teacher this year! He is well loved by his students and they learned a lot about the value of working for a goal as a group. Looking forward to next year!

* Madison received a character award from her Science teacher. I can think of no greater compliment! She is the most sincere and humble person I know. I am so proud of her!
* I think our official mark of summer is blowing up the pool. Although it's pretty small for my growing kids, they can make anything fun!

Madison was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society this week.  We are so proud of her.  She is not only smart, but a hard worker and humble.  After the induction, we went to On The Border to celebrate.  We casually mentioned to our waitress what we were celebrating and at the end of the meal all of the workers came out clapping, had her stand on her chair and announced that she had been inducted into the honor society to the entire restaurant.  Very, very classy!!
Today was field day for Abby and Max.  Sam and I spent the morning going back and forth between their events.  We ended the morning off with a rain shower...very fun!

For this program Sam graduated from crying in fear of all the strange grown-ups staring at him to staring shell shocked instead.  It is the cutest thing to see a row of two-year-olds all trying to process why everyone is staring at them and clapping!
