Congratulations Bryce!

Bryce finished this year with flying colors. He received 10 Awards (that's right, ten!) at the end of school. Some of the awards were for UIL competition, one for a spelling bee, two for commended performance on the TAKS, a trophy for best boy student and one for having straight A's throughout the year.

I think we're going to have to create a trophy room just for him!

The kids are excited about starting summer, and Blake has already started it off by staying at Grandma's house. What else are summers for?

Sick and Tired

Well, it is close to the end of school. Is that good or bad? I guess it depends on who you ask and how you look at it. Jacie has been sick again with Scarlet Fever and the boys have been "sick" with only three days left of school.

They've both gotten straight A's so I guess we can't complain. Bryce was invited to participate on two Academic UIL teams and did well. Blake, well, since he was reading by himself before he ever started Kindergarten (he's his own best teacher) he's done extremely well. He seems to have a few girlfriends too. (Sigh...) Must get his looks from Dad and charm from Mom! : )

Jenna is doing well and Jacie is a ballet nut. I think between Charlotte's Web and ballet there isn't room for much else. If you made a Charlotte's Web ballet it would consume her life! Other than that life is pretty much normal between Cub Scouts, Church and work. One of these days I'm going to find out how to make money doing what I love...but being home with the family doesn't make you money yet.

Jenna's Ballet Recital

Jenna recently completed her first ballet class with a ballet recital. The name of the recital was the S.S. Munroe. It is owned by Ms. Munroe. Jenna's dance was "The Good Ship Lollypop". She was quite nervous at first and didn't want mom to leave her while she was getting ready. However, when the time came she was ready to go on stage and did wonderfully!

This picture was taken at her rehersal performance. We're very proud of her!

Our Trip to Seaworld

We recently took some time out to go to our favorite theme park, SeaWorld of San Antonio.

Bryce and the others had a chance to feed the dolphins. We ejnoyed the shows as usual and the day was perfect as far as the weather could be.

Jeremy, Christina, Jerry and Gary were able to go with us. It was good to have them down and enjoy some time together.
