Good Bye Cast!

I planned a get together at one of our favorite places as soon as I found out when Noah's cast would be coming off. He had a hard 8 weeks since he normally is very active and I thought this would be a great way to celebrate. Some of our dearest friends were about to join us at Pisgah National Forest. We always have such a great time there. The water is so cold that I didn't get in at all but there was no stopping the kid. We are so blessed to have great friends that we can make memories with!

This was after everyone had went down sliding rock.

Looking Glass Falls with some of my besties:) We were missing the other two!

We have taken a picture in this same spot for over 16 years. It has became a family tradition. 

My brother and his family were able to come!

These guys will always put a smile on your face!

Isle of Palms Take 2

Since Noah was gone to Alabama when we went on the first day trip we decided to go again. This time Kain was gone on a mission trip to NYC. Noah had just got his boot a week before and I didn't really think this though. Poor kid had to hop on one foot all the way down to the ocean. He had a great time though! 

Corey helped Noah in and out of the water. At one point Noah was actually on Corey's back. I wish I would have gotten that picture.

This was Noah's first time with the lacrosse stick back in his hands. It made my heart smile. That boy sure does love some lax!

Noah's 8th Grade Graduation

Noah has always been a good student but better than that he is really a good kid at heart. He had a trying second half of 8th grade. His character was tested and he came through a better person. I am so proud of how he responded to a situation he had nothing to do with but was getting the blame. During all of this he still had lax practice 5 days a week and lots of studying to get done. At the end of the year he was recognized for making the Honor Roll all year which I think is hard to do in middle school which everything you have going on. I am looking forward to his high school years and all the memories it will bring! 

Last Day of School

The car ride on the last day of school was sad for this mama. It was the last time Zoe would be dropped off at the intermediate school, the last time I would take Noah to middle school and the last time I would drive Kain to school. How do I already have 2 high school kids(one that will be a junior!) and how is our baby going to middle school?!?!

Zoe's 5th Grade Awards

Zoe finished up her last year at BSIS. She is so looking forward to middle school in the fall and I hope she loves it as much as she thinks she will. She had a fantastic 5th grade her with Ms. Vaugh and Ms.Henderson in a single gender class. Zoe is very goal minded and is very hard on herself when she doesn't do well in school. She was so excited to receive a plague for Career A's. She has now set a goal to continue to have career A's until she graduates. We will see how that goes:)

 Corey hasn't been able to attend many awards day so it was extra special that he was there.

Zoe and Ms. Vaughn 

"Most Likely to Succeed"  voted on by her class.
