  • Yesterday I was looking for some cute flip-flops (although I still think of them as thongs!) for CM.  Both of us love, love love our shoes!!  I was in the girls' section looking at all of the cute shoes with the ribbons and flowers and beads when I realized...all of these shoes are too little for my baby.  She has graduated into women's sizes.  It's hard to believe those small, little, chubby feet have grown so much over the last 10 years. 

  • We were talking about how the kids will go into public school when they get to high school and Little C says.  "I don't want to go to public school that would be like going to military school."  Um.....not quite son.  Then he said, "If I go to public school I won't be able to praise God."  We were quick to tell him that he can praise God anywhere but I thought that was so sweet.

  • This is now the home of the superior medallion recipient in 5th grade poetry!  So proud of CM and how well she did in the District Speech contest last week.  She scored 99 out of 100 points.  We are proud of her in all of her accomplishments but I think speech is such an awesome life skill to have and to develop and something you can use throughout your whole life.

Way to go CM!!! I always enjoyed speech, but I am a chatty Cathy so that could be why....

That is really something CM can be proud of. Public Speaking is a very important skill, which will take her a long way.
