I've been wanting to write for weeks, but the end-of-the-school-year time warp totally sucked me in. So here I am playing catch-up once again...
So...remember this little guy?
He was just starting middle school as a 6th grader.
Before I knew it, 3 years flew by, and I was taking his photo at his end-of-the-year honors assembly here:
What happened to my little boy? It's as if I blinked, and he turned into a young man - a young man about to start high school, mind you! Eeek!
I created this layout to document this outrageous passage of time...

Roland and I are extremely proud of him. Not only was he awarded MVP awards in both football and track, he received Academic Athlete of the Year, a truly great honor for him. He also made A/B Honor Roll for the year and received a Presidential award. Now, I can only pray that high school goes as well!
Emma ended the school year on a high note as well.
Little Miss got all A Honor Roll for the year and was the top AR reader in her class. Roland and I are extremely proud of her as well. I feel very blessed to have two kiddos who try and do their very best each day at school.
Another great note about Emma - can you believe she missed 16 days of school last year in Kindergarten? This year, she only missed 6 days, and 3 of those were before she had her surgery (to remove her adenoids and insert PE tubes in her ears) in November, 2 were due to the surgery itself and 1 was due to a badly sprained wrist in the Spring. Yay!!
