Dashing through December

Well, sweet Claire and her closet 6th grade friends had a gift exchange after school yesterday, before their first exams get started!  Love that she's still friends with these girls since kindergarten!

Claire performed in the 6th grade choir concert Monday night and the songs were just as lovely as our Soprano 2!

Busy Busy

Well Jesse and the SBA SGA Board were on the morning news Thursday for raising over $4000 for the Memphis Food Bank, and a fellow student vowed to shave his head of the raised the goal amount...well they did, so now his is shaved...but for a great cause!!! Way to go SBA!

So today Jesse took his first 2 official college tours and I did my best to keep it together....He absolutely loved CBU and had a tour of the campus and also a specialized engineering tour with their labs.  He was in Heaven...We also toured UofM and their engineering labs and drone lab (which he loved).  We've got more to go, but it was a fun day!! And he take s his ACT tomorrow......heavy stuff!

A bittersweet Monday

Well, after 16 consecutive years, I officially retired from the minivan Monday.  I no longer need the room, as Jesse is driving,and Claire is low maintenance and literally takes up a little space in a seat!  So we decided to downsize and Lance did his negotiating magic! We ended up getting it from Little Rock, but it proved to be a fun day trip and Jesse had his official first college tour! While the school was not on his radar, it was still fun to partake in the tour!!

Can't wait to see what the future holds!!

Bubble Gum Fun!

 Well, I have one trick-or-treater left in the house.....she made her own costume this year, and I was most proud of that! We had a bit of rain, but we had fun nonetheless with our neighbors The Beattys!  Jesse had friends over, so they had their own tub of treats and passed out candy for us while we were out with Claire! Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

Flying through Fall!

Well, Jesse took time from studying this weekend to carve a pumpkin...I don't think that boy will ever be too big for it!  He carved his school logo....pretty cool I must say!

 Claire and her love for all thing pandas continues.....this pumpkin is as big as she is! But oh so cute!!

 A little preview of Claire's Halloween costume...she made it! 
Claire's cheer season is over, and these girls are just so sweet together.  They span from 5-8th grade, but just do so well together as a team.  We are proud of how well they performed their routine at the final pep rally...I'm going to try to post the video here soon....
