On to all the good news. The Girl Child was surprised at Awards Night. Not only did she get the scholarship from the Master Gardeners Association, but she received her certification for Nursery Worker (384 hours), she was presented as the Silver winner of the Skills USA Horticulture and received her certificate for Communications Technology. Then we all went out for ice cream!
She got through the Capping Ceremony and then came the big night. She got to walk. It was beautiful! Her brother even gave her a hug and a dozen roses. (I got a picture of THAT)
The Boy Child's grades have improved over the last year. He's not doing as good as I know he can, but he's getting there. I think he just may be starting to realize how fast life is coming at him and he can't just drift along anymore. I know quite a few kids go through that lazy phase. Hopefully, he's coming out of his.
I've got all my Christmas and birthday shopping done for the year except for Pop. He never gives a clue to what he wants till the very last minute and then says something like "socks" or "underware". This time he messed up. He mentioned a couple of things to The Mom and she quickly passed them on to me. So now I'm set. I'll get a couple little things for the kids as the season gets closer, but other than that It's not going to frazzle my brain this year. Yay!
I'm starting a scrapbook for The Girl Child's last two years of special events. (Like graduating!) I was printing out pictures that we had taken and deciding what to do with all of them and I got the bug. I make my own special cards and letters and such so I have a lot of the materials for scrapbooking. I've just never tried it before. Here's to doing something new...
