it's been very busy around these parts.

Today Foster Elementary School had their 5th Grade Move Up Ceremony. The theme was "We're Off to Make History". It was a very nice ceremony. Juwan is in school with some extremely smart kids. They received the Presidential Achievement Award, this award recoginezes the students who have maintained a A- average from 4th to 5th grade. Very smart kids. Congratualtions to them all (there were quite a few)!!!

Here's a few pictures of my big 5th grader. Still can't believe my first born is off to middle school. My how time flies.

The 5th Grader
Juwan and his teacher, Ms. Healey
This is a picture of Mrs. Marshalka. We have family history with this particular teacher. We've all had her!!! Yup, I had her, my brother had her and my sister had her all before Juwan. Pretty cool. The best part is she remembers all of us.
Congrats to the Class of 2017 (so far away)
Fresh off the hook (last week)

She loves the camera and her capelet. I am planning on making her a few sweaters for the school year also. She starts kindergarden in September. So exciting.
As for me, I have been plugging away a my school work and planning for the next course. I am taking an English class over the summer (online). As for the job, I am applying for a few positions and praying that by September, I will be employed. Until then, crocheting will be my full-time job. :)
Until next time...

Congrats to your little guy!!! How neat that you all had the same teacher.

The capelet is great. The color is awesome and it looks perfect on your little girl.

I hadn't visited your blog in a while, so I thought I'd stop by. Sorry to hear you've been laid off. My husband and I have each been laid off several times since 2006 (this last time he was laid off for a year), so I know all too well what it's like. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a new job comes along for you soon.

Congratulations to your son! My daughter will be starting 7th grade in the fall - boy, does it make me feel old to think that she'll be starting high school in two years.

Your daughter's sweater is really cute, and she's a cutie too!

Good luck with school!

It's so cool seeing pictures at Foster. My 5th grade teacher lives in Cali now.

Love the capelet.

Time definitely flies when it comes to the little ones. Your son will be a grown man before you know it.

SO how was the English class this summer?
