This week has started off as somewhat of an emotional one for me. Two big milestones will be reached this week and next. Torrie will be graduating from elementary school and Maya will be celebrating her 1st Birthday. As you can imagine it will be a busy couple of weeks for me and the family. On Tue. Torrie had her school awards celebration. She received awards for participation in Chorus, Chess club and Wright Flight. ( a program where she pledged to do better in school and stay drug and alcohol free, in which she received a plane ride that she will be taking her pawpaw on…I am very jealous because secretly I wanted her to pick me for the plane ride:). She also received an award for maintaining honor roll the whole school year. Torrie is a great helper and the librarian at the school gave her a special medal and $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart for helping put books back on the shelves the whole school year without being asked and sometimes even sacrificing her recess to do it. Now if I could just get her to clean her room like that we would be in business:). Today we will go to a Violin fitting; yes…We will be hearing the sweet screeching of the Violin next school year! We are so proud of Torrie and thank God for her and Maya everyday!!
