My hard work paid off this year. I mean ETHAN's hard work paid off this year. He was honored at the 6th grade awards ceremony this past week.
He was awarded the Spanish award and the English award.
I was super excited to see him get the all A's award! Only 8 students from the 6th grade got all A's! I am praying that next year he will remember how it felt for all his hard work to pay off, and we will have fewer homework battles!!!
I enlisted Ethan to help me move drinks and chips to the PTA room for his field day. As he was helping, some 8th graders volunteered to help. Ethan and I both agreed that they would be very helpful in lifting those gatorade cases.
Just that morning, I thought about how big Ethan is getting. That thought quickly went out the window when I saw him next to these big 8th grade guys!
Our 8 volunteer PTA ladies took a deep breath when we saw this crowd of kids coming at us for snacks!
I was able to stop for a minute and snap a quick picture of my guy having fun! It went by so fast and I was so busy. I think everyone had a good time!
This dude has gone WEEKS without a haircut. He says he wants to grow it out, but I think he just doesn't want to go to get it cut. I had enough last week and made an appointment to see my hair stylist. She asked what we wanted and I told her we need a middle school haircut. She accepted the challenge and succeeded! We both LOVE it!!
The following day he received his yearbook and we found out he won an art contest for the Jubilee Race for Cancer. It comes with $50 check! He was beyond thrilled. He told me he thinks that the new haircut is good luck!
