This week was filled with many proud mommy moments. On Wednesday evening at church, Clarissa was given a speaking part in an upcoming Valentine's program. She was so pumped!!! It was a very proud moment to see a child who struggles with speech to be trusted with a SPEAKING part! Thursday Jonathon "shadowed" at the middle school that he is applying to. I thought I was doing OK with all of this middle school stuff but had a small (OK, maybe larger than small) breakdown when I dropped him off. However, after taking the parent tour, I was so proud of him and his acccomplishments that he could be invited to such a wonderful school. Friday morning Jonathon called me at school to tell me that he had won 2nd in the Science Fair and would be advancing on to Regionals in March. Saturday he had his first gymnastics meet of the season and came away with 1st in tumbling, 2nd in Double-Mini, and 4th in trampoline. I sure did enjoy watching him compete and excel! I don't know what else could be better in life than being a Mom except being a Mom to two really cool kids!
