There is much to be thankful for

Today is the first day of summer break! I do enjoy having them home!
Last night was their school graduation. Each year they take time to give awards to the rest of the children in the school. Oh my aching arm from carrying all the awards home!! Ha
No seriously, we are so proud of our kiddos. They worked very hard this year and have all had a desire to excel in everything they do. Jonathan, Justin, Jacob and Jeffrey all achieved High Honors. This means they had straight A's all 4 quarters. All that Thursday night quizzing (that I so often dreaded) paid off! Jonathan also recieved a plaque for "Outstanding runner of the year" from his Cross Country team. Last year we were introduced to an award called the "Eagle" award. This award is the highest award given. Jacob earned this award last year and we were so proud to have our very own Eagle living in our home. This year we were proud of Jonathan to receive this high honor. Way to go guys!
