Jesse was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society this morning in a lovely ceremony after mass. We are proud of his efforts this year, with his maturity and drive that have evolved so much since last year! He was joined by both sets of grandparents, and Claire's class even got to stay and watch him as well! He will wear that pin with pride!! 3 more months and he'll be ready for high school (we hope!!!)
Well, I am so so sorry for not having posted since Christmas! We have been sick around here and I'm just now feeling up to catching up!! Lots going on around here!
We decided to take a stroll on the Riverwalk on a pretty day and Jesse decided to show off.....

Jesse doing what he loves....putting stuff together!
Claire asked for a few sewing lessons over Christmas break, and it turns out, Claire loves sewing and seems to have a knack for it! She insisted on wearing reading glasses (with no lenses) and those are now her "sewing glasses"! I had her make pillow after pillow, and now that she's mastered that, she is moving on to skirts....will post on that soon!
