School Board Meeting - Student of the Month!

Tonight we went to the Tri-County School Board Meeting. Macie was recognized as one of the Students of the Month in the Primary School. Her Teacher, Mrs. Ingram recognized Macie and another student in her class. When they were presented the award at school, the Principal, Mr. Ulrich asked Macie was was her favorite thing about school. She said "Art!" Mr. Ulrich said "Maice seems creative, look at the way she dresses." Mr. Ulrich also asked Macie what she likes the best about Tri-County school, she said "The teachers are very nice!" That answer led to an "awwwww" from the people attending the meeting! She recieved at special "Student of the Month" pencil, that Mr. Ulrich said "had all the answers" and a gift certificate to Pizza King! Macie said she was going to drink her $3.00 in coke!!

Ryan's Wisdom!!

Life is easy for a four year-old. But even better when it includes candy!!! And we also let our country kids play in the streets when we go to town!

This is Dave and Nathan working on setting up the Kiddie Tractor Pull at the Little Cousin Jasper Festival! I will take a moment here to reflect on a few quotes from Ryan this weekend.
"Mom, do you like my underware? I have been wearing them all day!"
"Mom, I lost Macie!!" (Macie was taking a shower, and Ryan noticed her absence!)

Student of the Month!

Macie came home today from school with a very special suprise! She recieved Student of the Month award! She was very excited. She said she was called out of Mrs. Ingrams room, and she thought she was in trouble! :) Then they told her she was Student of the Month and she will get to go to a school board meeting. I told Macie this is the type of example she needs to set for other students for the rest of the year! I like to remind my kids daily that they need to behave in school!

Spring Break - First Day at Disney

Monday was a BIG day at Magic Kingdom! Kids had a GRAND day, and rode new rides since they now meet the height restrictions. Macie said her guts were "all tangled up" after the Big Thunder Mountain Rail Road ride.
The kids met Snow White, Daisy Duck and Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
We made sure to plan our day around both parades. The night parade was the best one. All the characters were back, but with lights!!

Sunday in Orlando

I keep telling myself it's time to start blogging again, and I think I will do it "tomorrow" Now "tomorrow" has turned into MARCH! I will take this time on Spring Break, and start to blog everyday. I can do this, I am sure. Dave is watching NCAA Basketball right now. Odd to see him do this, most basketball in our house is only watched during tournament time.

Today was spent waking up to Meme cooking breakfast! We then headed to River Island for a few laps around the "river". One lap is 1,200 feet, so we trekked about 3/4 mile today around the river, and there is a current, so naps were in order for the kids after the lazy river!

It is so hard to get the kids down for bedtime during vacation, but Ryan's good night kiss included him saying "See you at Breakfast time".

I am sure the kids are dreaming sweet dreams, anticipating their trip to the Magic Kingdom on Monday!
