Good Morning Shawnee Trail

One of the fun and good things about having children at the same school is the chance to see them recognized at the same time. :) Every Friday at our elementary school there is a morning assembly called Good Morning Shawnee Trail and they do the pledge, sing a song, have a moment of silence (remember how we used to PRAY in school!! now it is only a moment of silence), announcements, birthday recognitions for the week, awards, etc ... kind of a fun pep rally to kick off the day. This morning at Good Morning Shawnee Trail Landry was called up front with others who were celebrating birthdays this week and got his birthday pencil, it was a fun moment for him. It was an even bigger moment for Kelsey, she was recognized for participating in the Bluebonnet Reading List - you read books from the Bluebonnet Award list and take a test - she fell in the reading 10 -14 books category and received a medal. She has done this the last 3 years and has gotten a medal each time - yea Kelsey! She had started out thinking she would read all 20 and get a trophy but did not make it to that level. We are so proud of her. Here are some of the photos from this morning ....
Kelsey on the top row in pink and white showing off her medal with the other 5th graders that participated in the reading challenge.

Oh look there is Dave standing in line with Landry's class giving the Kindergartners a hard time - you can just see the top of Landry's head.
Look at Kelsey on the stage doing the morning movement dance.

Landry up front with his birthday pencil ... Is he really 6??? He is in the blue shirt leaning up against the stage.

The photos are all out of sequence sorry about that - there's Landry going up to the stage after his name was announced. Happy Birthday Landry!

Landry LOVES Legos!!

Landry loved his present we got him ~ Lego X-Wing Fighter. He loves all things Lego and all things Star Wars. This set is pretty neat it came with the mini figures Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and R2-D2. We started building it last night and I finished it up today per Landry's request. He will be so excited to play with it when he comes home from school. He said now he needs the Millennium Falcon ~ha~! That set is way out of the price range for Landry I am afraid. If anyone is done with their Millennium Falcon Lego set and would love to make Landry happy please feel free to donate it to him :) Be sure to include the instruction manual.

Spring Fever!!!

I am so ready for spring, are you? This past week the kids had their Valentine's parties at school. I worked Kelsey's so did not get to take any photos but she had a good time and got lots of cute Valentine's. I am so happy she is making friends. I did get to stop by Landry's party for a little while and he was so happy to see me. I got some photos of the games they played - how fun is this ?? they played find the matching heart game and Landry's heart matched his best friend at school's heart. :) They were so excited. I still can not believe he is in Kindergarten and will be 6 this next week. Time moves too fast! Kelsey got some great news last week also - she was picked in the lottery to play saxophone next year in band. Who knew that so many kids would sign up for one instrument that they would have to have a lottery drawing for it ?? She is excited and she and Dave have already been looking at saxophones. I think they are going to rent one first. Again having a hard time believing my baby girl will be in the 6th grade in the fall. Middle school years, am I ready? No way! I have a lot to learn about these kids these days :).
