Student of Promise

On April 5 Devin was one of sixteen students in the Clovis Unified
School District who was honored at the Students of Honor banquet.
This is what the program said about it:

Each spring, the Students of Promise
Program recognizes high school juniors
who are attending school on a regular basis,
showing responsibility, and succeeding in
school in spite of very challenging situations
in their personal lives. On each high
school campus, there are students who face
extreme obstacles that could easily affect
their performance at school, but somehow
they don't let challenges get in their way.
Though they don't expect to be rewarded
for persevering through difficult times,
these students are "heroes in everyday life."
Each student selected for recognition in the
program is eligible to receive a $2000.00
scholarship for use in post-secondary
education. The Foundation of Clovis
Schools wishes to encourage, reward and
honor these Students of Promise.

Devin's high school counselor and the school district hearing specialist who
has worked with him since first grade both nominated him for this award.
Hearing the challenges that all of the sixteen kids
have overcome was quite inspirational.

Cookie Bouquet

This is what I'm giving the Young Women
for their birthdays this year.
It is so cute and all the little kids follow
me around at church when I have one.

Tiger of the Month

Alyssa was selected as the 7th grade Tiger of the Month at her school. The Principal said it was the highest award that a student could receive at their school. The school had a really nice award ceremony. They invited families to come to breakfast and they presented the award and read why the teacher who nominated Alyssa thought she deserved to be Tiger of the Month. Then, they took this picture of them. Congratulations Alyssa!

I am so grateful that I have such an amazing family and support group around me. The past few months have been tough, but I am continually lifted with knowing that I have you all by my side. I love you so much.

Kitchen Stuff

We are making these aprons in Young Women.
I'm glad the girls like the fabric I got.
Isn't it so cute?!!!

This is Julia's first pie - a scrumptious Strawberry-Blueberry-Rhubarb
pie we made while she was home for two weeks in August.
