Hello All. Well my baby girl has been officially promoted to high school.  She had her promotion ceremony this last Tuesday.  It really is hard to believe she is going into high school.  I think it is just as hard for her brother and sister to believe.  Despite the terrible weather, rain/tornadoes that are state and neighboring states have been having Alyssa was able to make it home for the night.  The whole family together for Courts big event.  I was so excited.  We grilled and had a little bash.  Nothing big but something to let her know we are proud of her and yea you made it to high school (even though there was never a doubt).  Here are a few pictures of the big event.

This is true life at our house. 

Getting her certificate. 
Now you can stop growing up, please, pretty please.

Congratulations Court.  We are so proud of you.  

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6


  1. Congratulations to Courtney. How fun for her. I know the kids want to grow up and we don't want them to. Oh's fun though to see them grow and change. Glad you haven't been hit by tornadoes. Wacky weather here too. Our rivers are rising due to snow melt and rain, of course. Oh well...that's life. Take care and have a good weekend.

  2. Congrats to Courtney and to you for the great job you're doing raising her! Wishing her best of luck in her new school.
