Kate graduated 6th grade with a ceremony celebrating the end of her elementary school career. She earned the Presidential achievement award for maintaining at least a 90% in course work and passing Istep testing. In addition, she earned acknowledgment for math and language arts excellence as well as perfect attendance for her final nine weeks of school. Obviously, she is grounded for the summer 😉.
Makenna performed an enthusiastic "it's my final school night ever" dance just before 11pm Tuesday night. This weekend holds graduation, a small party to celebrate and the kick-off to her final theatre commitment. All God's people said, "amen."

Makenna attended her fourth and final Thespian Banquet just after Kate's party wrapped. She was acknowledged for her commitment and leadership within the department. She also earned recognition during her class day awards ceremony Friday.
Kate made the middle school cheer team on her birthday. All God's people said amen because this mom was not ready to face rejection with a fresh teen on her birthday. But she also wants to try out for volleyball and will be getting team information after school Monday. Suddenly my summer is looking rather chaotic, which is the exact opposite of what I ordered.
As that truth resonates, I am finding refuge in one of Kate's birthday gifts.......
I woke at 6am on Saturday, tossed on some pearls and ventured next door for a pajama and pearl royal wedding party. Why not? Kid-free, hot tea and finally mimosas made for a lovely start to a very full day.

She was born singing and as she grew light freckles appeared on the bridge of her nose. Thirteen years later and I still can't get enough of them. She is a miracle, my rainbow baby.

The survey confirmed he really isn't listening when I speak because I say, "stuff". As it turns out, I do. But the card about his love growing and growing was precious.
My parents came to town to celebrate Kate's upcoming birthday and see Makenna off to prom. It was nice to spend the day with my mom this year. She bought me a piece of Cheesecake Factory Godiva Chocolate cheesecake for Mother's Day. My husband thought he was going to eat it for me. He was wrong. Dead wrong. Things got a little scary here for a minute.
And Lauren celebrated her first mother's day with two month old Austin. Her visit in June cannot come soon enough.
