Proud Mama

 Just thought I would share some random proud mama moments from last month. {kinda braggie, I know!}

So from youngest to oldest we have:

 Sophie participated in the Ward Traditional Academy talent show singing "Hard Knock Life" from Annie. This may not seem like a big deal, but she is a very introverted and shy child. She and her friends learned the song and some simple choreography and did such a good job. They performed twice, once during the day in front of the entire school, and once at night for families. Didn't they make some cute ragamuffin orphans?

Next up, Celeste: 

 I am proud of Celeste for re-entering the world of softball after her nasty break Thanksgiving 2010. She had not played in over a year, and since she was the only one with any pitching experience, she pitched the entire season. She picked her skills back up pretty quickly and was a real asset to her team. She even got over her initial fear of sliding after her break and had some good slides!

And Alexa:

Alexa amazes me everyday with the fabulous young lady she is becoming. So smart and responsible! So my proud moments are that we heard from U of A {accepted, offer of $5000/yr plus an I-Pad-random!}, ASU {accepted, offered $7500/yr Provost scholarship}, and she was accepted to Barrett Honors College at ASU. We still need to hear about a few scholarships and we should hear back from Scripps in April, so I will keep you posted.

As for Michael, he makes me proud daily when I see the hard working, kind, funny man he is becoming. He has helped us so much this last year in building our business, and I know Tony could not do it without his help! I wish I had a picture to share of him, covered from head to toe after chipping asphalt out of a huge silo. The things he does for us!

You and Tony are raising wonderful children and you have every right to be a proud bragging mom! I have a beaming smile after reading your post and they're not even my kids :)
