awards,birthday and anniversary all in a bundle!!

This is going to be a long post because.....
So much has happened this past couple of weeks I haven't had time to do anything but go, go, go!! I haven't had time to blog some important events that have happened lately!! First, Braxton received an invitation to attend the Honors Program at the middle school. This is for students that have earned the "Principals Award" which means they maintained a GPA of 3.7 or above for the school year, as well as having to be a member of the Silver Panther Club (for good citizenship) at least 3 out of 4 quarters. Another special priviledge they got before the rest of the school was that they received their yearbooks before the rest of the school! This year Braxton has done outstanding in school. He has received so many different certificates. He was in the Silver Panther, Honor Society Award (which is a G.P.A. of 4.0)  (he got an A- his last quarter so he didnt receive it for quarter 4, he was bummed!) and the Straight A Club *all 3 of these were for 3 out of the 4 quarters!!* He also was in the 100% club, High Standard Science, Most Outstanding 6th Grade Drama Student, Outstanding 6th Grade Language Arts Student, Certificate of Excellence in Keyboarding and he was The Student of The Month in February!! He is such a super kid and is ALWAYS doing his very best in all he does! We are so proud of him and how he makes such an effort to continue to do his best!! ok, off my soapbox! :)

Porter passed off his addition and subtraction before leaving the 2nd Grade. he was almost done passing off his multiplication too!! He really did well this year, and improved so much in every area! He is so ready to be a 3rd Grader!!!
He also played minors this year in baseball....and I didn't get one picture! I know awful....but I forgot my dang camera everytime! He did alright moving up to the minors, but he struggled with year he will be even better! :)
Brynlee's birthday was on the 27th. I am so late at getting it up here, but with Porter's baseball games, thats about all we had time for!! We celebrated by taking her and a couple little friends to McDonalds. They had such a good time playing! she got some fun gifts and was happy as ever! I can't believe my baby is 4!! It makes me sad and happy all in one! :) if that makes sense!! sad she is not a tiny precious baby anymore, but happy that she is old enough to go and do things with me and is a big girl about it! it is so much fun being able to spend time with my little girl!

Happy Girls!!
                                             eatin lunch!                                               happy as ever with presents!
she was so excited she got a Leapser! she had originally wanted a DS but I just couldnt buy one just yet! I figured she needed to be a little older. :) she got lots of fun stuff and was so excited she was finally 4!!

Josh and I also celebrated our 12 year anniversary together on the 30th!! I still can't believe we have been together for 15 years and married for 12!! so now I can officially say we have been together HALF of our lives! haha!! I am so happy to be married to him, he makes me happy! I hear people all the time say they struggle through certain years of marriage, and I can honestly say that we have never been through that! I mean we have had our ups and downs, but nothing big! I am so glad I chose to spend the rest of my life with him! I will have him forever!! I cant wait to see what the years to come will have in store for us!! I love you babe!!

I always said I hated when people went private because you can never just click on their blog and see whats going on, but after receiving NUMEROUS wierd comments in different languages, I just think that for my kids' safety, I am really thinking about going private! I won't do this for a couple weeks, but if you want to be able to view my blog, leave me a comment! thanks a bunch!!
