Thankful this week....

for Harrison rocking his performance for Declamation.
We are so blessed by so many fantastic programs offered in Harrison's school- one of which is new to us- called Declamation. Apparently it's like a speech contest in different forms... poetry, prose, humor etc... Harrison and his friend Owen stay after school every Tuesday for this program, and have been talking about it for months.. I was S.O totally excited and impressed to see this in action!!
 {It was very strange putting mascara on him haha!! and buying his get up! But soooooo fun!}

They were competing in the Humorous Duet - as EW! the Jimmy Fallon skit. Harrison was Jimmy's character and Owen was Ariana Grande.
So the parents go in and watch all the performers... in a small music room .... there were 10 acts... the duets had to walk in to a SILENT room... with all these eyes on them.. to say that I was literally shaking as I was videoing was a true statement... they all did SUCH a crazy brave thing.. Harrison and Owen were literally perfect, although they did not leave with a trophy... we were bumming for sure... their costumes were on point.. they will need to work on articulation next time ( although in the real skit artic is not there!)

 for Mimi buying skittles :) and treating us to dinner! It was LATE- we had no idea it was a 3 hour long event.... but never the less we were starving... Buona Beef to the rescue! ( and yes we made Harrison change 1st :))

for adorable pics of my adorable nephew... can not even wait to snuggle this smiley man at Hudsie's party tonight!!

Thankful for PGM's banana bonanza!! Look at this delivery!?! Employees were asked to take whatever they could as the bananas would go bad too fast... sooo Matt took and shared 4 boxes with my school! Sending home bunches of bananas made my heart so happy... these kiddos need healthy snack options... and we need frozen bananas for smoothies ;)

that we rebooted as a family... you know when your computer runs slowly, and there are error screens and issues... and that ever so amazing reboot technique that just solves everything... yeah that... the reboot that we needed was very real... and it was very helpful... and yes usually food helps too :) Mexican and Ice Cream :) and our sushi date this weekend was SO GOOD!

that Harrison got honor roll for his 3rd Quarter

that Hannah made good growth in her areas ( so fun that still in 1st grade they use a different letter system, so she gets P's, CD's and B's, and so we aren't as hard on her yet ... but seeing those P's makes our hearts very happy.. and the comments from the teacher about her compassion for others... that is where it's at... my parents were very lenient with us on grades growing up... as long as 2 things happened- all in for effort and all in for positive attitude...  so when I see that come across in our parenting ...I smile... but truth be told I am harder on big H and will be really sad if there are C's on that final report card!)

for a SUCCESSFUL PLEASANT HAIR CUT TIME!! All the happy faces inserted here!!
 Gooo Hudson!!!

that we had a blast at Monster Trucks!

 Thank you kind Venom truck driver for signing Hudson's Hat during the Pit Party!

  1. I love the "all in for effort, and all in for positive attitude"! Each morning I pray with the kids to do their best, and be kind to everyone around them....much more rewarding than straight A's, right?? (But straight A's...or 4's....or whatever is pretty nice too. 😉)
