My Two Graduates



Here are my two graduates. Austin promoted (graduated) from 5th grade this morning. Here in AZ the students usually promote from 5th grade into middle school. Austin attended his class's promotion even though he is going to stay at his elementary school for 6th grade. Our elementary school has been offering 6th grade for only 2 years now. Brandon went to middle school for 6th grade. And speaking of Brandon, he promoted from middle school today and will be attending high school in August! I am so proud of my two sons who have done well in school this last year. Tonight Karl was telling me that two people from church were telling him what great kids these two boys are. One of the men that Karl was talking to is Austin's Sunday School teacher. He told Karl that Austin is very knowledgeable about the gospel and loves to participate in class. The other person Karl was visiting with is one of Brandon's leaders at church. He was telling Karl how much he enjoys having Brandon in his class and what a great sense of humor he has. One time the Deacons (12 & 13 yr old boys) were playing football as an activity and they wanted Brandon to do a button-hook. Brandon didn' know what that was so they had another one of the boys run out onto the field and show him. As this other young man started to turn he slipped and fell. Everyone started laughing (even the young man who fell). Then Brandon asks, "So what am I supposed to do after I fall?" More laughter! What a character!

Wish me luck now that school is out. I hope these boys don't kill each other or die of boredom. lol! They have to share a room - which is so messy I may have to get a back-hoe to clean it out. That's one of our big projects for the summer. To get rid of a lot of junk and get their room more organized.

Congratulations to your boys!! Isn't it nice to get feedback on your kids, so you know that they are not total hellions when not at home. My mom used to complain that we were better at church than we were at home.

Thank you so much for the kind things you said about my daughter on your blog. As I was looking at all of the Photo Hunter photos, I noticed your two graduates and that you were from Arizona? We are also rom AZ, around Tuscon :) Have a wonderful summer vacation!! I hope you don't mind but I placed you in my blogroll. Take care.

A big congrats to both Austin and Brandon!! I hope summer goes well for them and you. LOL!! You know I'm a teacher cuz I can't WAIT to be home with "just my kids". I'm probably one of the only moms groaning at the end of summer, too! =o) We are tackling our boys' room this summer also. THAT is going to be quite a project.
