2 for 1 deal

As most of you who are regular readers to the blog know, the kiddos elementary school does an award every month call "The Good Citizen" Award. Basically what it sums up to be is the best student you can be--behavior and grades. Well, on the way home last Thursday, Braden's teacher stops him on the way out the door to ask him a question. So, once we get out the door I asked what was that about. He then says, "Oh I got Good Citizen" this month. I replied with the usual...what, really, I'm so proud. Well, we get in the car and Lexie said "Oh yeah, by the way, I got "Good Citizen" this month too. I immediately thought...wait! This can not possibly happen. Last year when I needed them to be in the same day (due to the fact that I worked 40 minutes away) I couldn't buy them Good Citizen together. This year within the first 7 days of me being back at HES, they get Good Citizen in the same month. I couldn't believe it. I honestly thought it was a conspiracy between their teachers. They informed it wasn't. Both picked by necessity, but together was sheer accidental. I was amazed, 2 Good Citizens.

And for the record those who noticed my 2 month hiatus, I'm back on track. Good Citizen Awards Ceremony September 8 @ 8:30. My blog post a measly 13 hours later. I am so good. Well, not really, just had some free time and decided to do it.

My Good Citizens!!!

Birthday Party

Isn't it fun to attend a birthday party where it is something different to do? Well we went to a friend of Lexie's (Rachael's) birthday party and they were told to wear their swimsuit. We go there and found a blow-up slip-n-slide. It looked so fun and to be honest with you, if I would have had my swimsuit, I would've been on it. The kids were pooped after this party.

2 months

Ok, so I was catching up on the blogs that I read and realized that one of those people also read my blog. Well, to my horror, I noticed that I had a 2 months beside my name. 2 months had been 2 months since my last post. I really can't believe it. So hopefully these next few posts will catch you up.

Send'em Back Celebration

At CRBC we had a Send'em Back to School Celebration. The kids had a blast. There were 3 blow-up slides, games, pizza & hotdogs, and fireworks. What better way to end the summer?

Meet the teacher

Sunday August 8th was Meet the Teacher at HES. We already new who our teachers were. Mrs. Simpson is Braden's kindergarten teacher and is amazing. Mrs. Decker is Lexie's 3rd grade teacher and is wonderful! We were so happy to find out who our teachers were. On that day we also took all our supplies...which was quite a bit of them.

CRBC Children's Camp

Camp was at Hargis Retreat again this year. It was bittersweet. We had a great time, but we were all sad because it was Jay and Pam's last camp to be in charge. We did many science experiments and had a ketchup and mustard war (no pics from that-sorry didn't want to ruin the camera).

Aldridge Gardens

Allison and I took the kids to Aldridge Gardens at the beginning of the summer just to have something to do one day. It was a pretty day, I took some good pics and we enjoyed the music from someone's wedding reception.

Mrs. Ginny

Mrs. Ginny was Braden's K-4 teacher this year. We will miss her and the other teachers (Mrs. Tonya and Mrs. Lisa) in her room greatly next year. They were awesome teachers.

K-4 Graduation's official, my baby boy is ready for real kindergarten. It saddens me that he's not a baby anymore, but I can enjoy him learning and becoming more independent.

Shootin Hoops

Braden got very obsessed with basketball after riding to school with Marcy. Her son Ethan plays basketball and Braden would go out with him every afternoon and shoot hoops. That's when we decided to get a goal. We got a goal from Mr. Bobby and the kids love it!!! Thanks Mr. Bobby for the Sunkist basketball goal.

Braden-ism #2

Conversation on the night of June 2nd
Mom: Braden go get your p.j.'s so we can get ready for a bath.
Braden: I'm too tired, I don't want a bath.
Mom: I understand, but you need to wash your might be dirty.
Braden: Mom, I don't need to take a bath tonight, it's SUMMER, it can wait until morning.


Hope you enjoyed the second installment of Braden-isms.
