Prom 2015

Prom was last Saturday March 7, 2015
Yes, a very early prom
Lots of pretty dead trees and brown grass as backgrounds for photos
But these kiddos made it all look fabulous!
Nobody warned me that I might cry....
Now, I know about Senior day and graduation and dropping them off at college, but nobody mentioned tears being shed at Junior prom???
My first baby just looked so beautiful and just so darn grown up.
How did that happen?
They had a fabulous time and it was so fun to see them all dressed up!

She was just this size! Practicing cartwheels in the yard and driving the Barbie jeep!

Notice the small pop of color? No, not flowers, a pink umbrella in the driveway where the little girls were playing :)

Julia went with her good friend Jimmy

The thing is, these girls stepped off the soccer field just a few hours before! Quite a transformation!!!
Love that they can be strong, athletic AND beautiful!

This is a great group of kids!!!

Jaida begged us to let her come to the picture taking location. She just loves observing all the big girls. Julia was happy to oblige. 

I love this daughter of mine who has become a young lady right before my eyes. It is exciting... and teary, to step into these next stages of life with her. You looked beautiful sweetheart!
I love you Julia Irene!!!

WARNING! Brag post. 
Well, it is my blog and it is my family's yearbook so documenting the good and bad go on here.
First up is Sam.
Sam finished his first year of middle school basketball just a few weeks ago.
This was only his second year of playing basketball.
He was awarded the Cavalier Award.
The coach said,"Sam is the type of player any coach would want on their team."
Way to go buddy! So VERY proud of you!

Sam's team receiving their certificates for participation

My "little" boy who is almost as tall as the coach! Certainly helps in basketball!!

All the winter sports award winners.

 SO proud of you Sam!!!!

Next up is Julia.
Julia was inducted into FLAIR which is a foreign language honor society for our entire region.
Spanish is her language.

These are the inductees from her school.

Julia's basketball season ended last week with a very quick transition into soccer!
Her team made it to the state playoffs this year which was one of their goals for the season.

The JV  girls receiving participation certificates and the Varsity team their  letters.

Julia won All-Region player for 4AAA region.
She also won Player of the Year for her Varsity team.
So proud of you Jules! 

All the winter sports award winners.

Two of her teammates-Tori won the Coaches Award and Jamie won the 6th Man Award.

Love my kiddos and how hard they work in ALL that they do!
