Awards Day

Today was awards day at school. We are just so proud of the kids!! I am so thankful that I am able to attend their functions at school. Some of the kids were crying because their parents we not able to come. Of course my kids act embarrassed when I'm there but I know they will be happy one day that I was there.

Kain and his teacher Mrs.Hardee

Notice how he is looking away while holding the award. He knows I'm clicking away!

Yes the girl beside him is in 4th grade. Does she look 10 to you? These kids are a whole head (or 2) taller than him. But that's OK. He'll grow like a weed one day.

Noah was one of four kids chosen to read their story about President Obama

He is so happy at school.

Finally some one is looking at me.

Zoe was happy because she got to eat refreshments at every class.

Now she wasn't embarrassed by me being there. But give it a few years and she will be!

I have to say get us to Kain being that way and Noah will in a few years... My oldest got like that now they don't care if you are clicking away.. Tyler is somewhat gettting like that. My saddest thing was the first year Ryan and Stephen would not get up there with Tyler and Santa for me to take a pic.. Never know who would be looking... I think Zoe will always like the camera...

How neat, a middle of the year awards day. Our school doesn't do that. I love the picture of Kain holding the award way down low and not looking at you.
