C12 Junior Honor Society

More end of school honors.

C12 was invited to the National Junior Honor Society last year and she declined the honor and I kind of maybe might have gotten a LITTLE bit annoyed at her.

She was invited again this year and she accepted the honor. We have a GREAT photo of M13 (standing the the blue and white stripes, second from the left) and Just below her with the glasses on and a big smile, is C12.

Well done, my daughter.

Mother's Day

May 14 -- Mother's day was lovely. I'm sending out a thanks to C12 for saying happy mother's day, and a super-special thanks to Q11 who had a  grand vision and put it together, with the help of TCR, who paid for it all, and a teacher who created some fun things with the kids, too.

C12 DID offer to give me a hug if I gave her some chocolate, but I declined the offer. It doesn't work that way, dear. I did share the chocolate with her, but there was no quid pro quo.

I'm going to jump ahead to May 21 ... when we busted into the Mother's DAY spa and this is how it began. YIKES, right???!!! We did get all spa'd up and our skin felt Ah-MAZING. But the masks were weird to wear.

The Beginning of the end of the school year

C12 is in the Creative Writing program in her middle school. Which means she gets extra classes in writing. Cool. One of the things they did was enter their writing in a county-wide write-a-book contest.

C12 won 2nd place for her entry in the Illustrated Fiction, 7th grade. M13 did the illustrations, C12 did the writing.
SO, we went to the award ceremony. Here we are waiting for the ceremony to start.

Here they are getting their awards. Nice job, girls!!!

Organized Chaos - I Love Rock 'n' Roll

We LOVE the elementary school talent show. Some incredible kids and they are ALL super brave to get up there and share their talents. These 5th graders were my favorite, of course.
