Big week here--Easter Sunday was beautiful! Miss A got her Young Womanhood Medallion! Miss O had 2 track meets and broke the school record for the mile!!! Miss A had one track meet--her first varsity meet as a freshman, and she got 2nd in both her 2 mile and 1 mile races and improved on her best times. It was a busy week, and it will only get more so. People say December is the busiest month of the year, I think April/May blow it out of the water. Plus, we only have 6 weeks of school left for the year! Our April/Mays are crazy, so I am just trying to embrace that craziness and "keep calm and carry on." Wish me luck. Here is a look at our week. . .
Easter Sunday--everyone ready for church in their new outfits and Mr J's new suit.
Miss A got her Young Womanhood medallion which is a huge deal at our church! She had to do over 70 hours of service/projects. It is equivalent to the Boy Scouts Eagle Scout award. She got this beautiful silver necklace. Way to go Miss A!!!
Track Meet #1 of the week--Miss O did discuss, and got 2nd place. Way to go! She also ran the 1 mile, half mile, and was the anchor on the medley relay, and she got 1st in all 3 races!!! Way to go Miss O!
Mr J got this fun new kick ball in his Easter basket that he was trying out today. Quite a kick there :)
Track Meet #2 of the week--Miss O broke the school record in the mile race running it in 5:59. She also won the race and got another gold medal for anchoring and winning their medley relay. More about our crazy track life here.
2013 is the year of Gratitude for our family. We are trying to really focus this year on our blessings and being grateful. We made blessing books at the beginning of the year to write in daily our 5 blessings or things we are grateful for that day. More about that here. I snapped a picture of Mr J's book today. Love the things he sees as blessings and is grateful for, and I love his spelling. He is 7.
Ben out working on the car this weekend. So grateful for him and all he does.
Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a great week!
