Noah had his 8th grade promotion and Lily had her 5th grade promotion!  Here are the graduates:






Noah and Lily received awards for a year of all A’s.  Noah also was recognized for being a peer mentor to a 6th grader.  Lily received the presidential fitness award.  We are so proud.  High school and middle school…here they come!

May 22nd can only mean one thing…Noah is a year older.  Our 14 year old will graduate from Middle School next Friday and then start high school in August.  Janelle and I often comment that we remember being 14…vividly.  I still remember my locker combination and my freshman classes.  So Noah is making memories to last a lifetime.

Noah loves baseball (have you picked up on that?), nice shoes (he spends all of his money on shoes), cool socks, math, frisbee, and hanging out with his friends.  He picked Indian food for his birthday dinner and a lemon cake for the 14th year.  He strives for perfection at school, and he brings his math questions home to his Dad.  But I get to proofread his essays, and he is turning into a fine writer.  Noah fights a lot with his sister.  He hates mowing the lawn but loves the money from it.  We finally moved Noah’s room downstairs…so he is officially the teenage son in the basement.

Happy Birthday, Noah!  We know you are going to do great things.
