an honorable night....

for this guy who was newly inducted into the bobcat honor society.....and we couldn't be more proud.  he struggled so much in school in the early years and he has worked so very hard to get to where he is right now.

man, oh man they are growing kids big nowadays....
when his name was called, the whole family whooped and hollered and austen made sure he acknowledged them...
we made him wear a shirt and tie for this event.  he didn't mind the tie but he wanted to wear his shirttail hanging out.....uh, that would be a NO.  i figured that he would have pulled his shirt out of his pants while waiting for his name to be called.  he didn't.  thank you for staying tucked buddy.  i appreciate that favor...
and in 9 days, i will return the favor when i accompany him and the entire 8th grade on a trip to washington dc for 5 days....he found out yesterday that i am officially going and i'm not so sure that he is happy about it.  
but,
i think that secretly he is not so unhappy about it either...
i can't wait.  it will be so much fun.  most of his friends are going too and they are all great kids.  i'm hoping that the cherry blossoms will be in bloom but i think we may be a couple of weeks too early...
there will be a really full itinerary and a diverse schedule of places to see.  we travel at night on a motorcoach bus (ugh!) where they are supposed to sleep during the travel time so we don't miss any daytime activity time...
yeah, that's gonna happen!!!  
i plan to take loads of pictures...i've only been there once before in 2002 when we took a vacation to the east coast.  i didn't have a digital camera then so i am really excited to capture the architecture and history. right now, i'm off to research the area and our itinerary.
