School is Out!

Yes it is time again that all mothers dread. School is officially out and the kids are already bored and it has only been one day since school ended.

McKenna officially graduated from 6th grade. Justin and I laughed because we never had such a big program when we graduated from 6th grade. The teachers just shoved us out the door. We laughed and said that I guess the world has changed so much they are just happy that kids graduate at any level. These are some pictures of her graduation. She received several awards and honors. She was awarded the Presidential Award for Academics and Character. This means she got all A's and B's for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade and high CRCT scores. She also got awards for the Beta Club, Reading Bowl Team and an Elm TV award where she was the anchor and camera man this past year. She was nominated from her teachers for the National Creative Society for Chorus and Band. Wow that is a lot of awards! We are very proud of her!

Asher also has a lot to brag about. He got awards for High Honor Roll, Showcase for the Arts and Perfect Attendance. He got 158 AR Points this year. He loves to read. He has been in the musical, participated in Scouts and played baseball also. He along with McKenna were in the challenge program this year. Asher tells me he and his friend are going to be the first ones to Mars. His study of space in the Challenge program and a trip out to the Huntsville Space Center has inspired him to do great things.

We usually do not like to brag, but we are very proud of them this past year.

So glad to see your new blog! I am so impressed with your kids--they have participated and excelled in so many areas! Congratulations Asher and McKenna! If you think of fun things to pass the summer days, please share, ours starts in just a week and I am already feeling a sense of dread for the "I'm bored" and "What can we do?" complaints.
