Awards for All!!!

As I've said before, May was quoted by one of my friends as being "the new December". Whew, they are so right. May reminds me why I don't need anymore children. I could never make it to all their extracurricular activities. I love them, but wowee-they kept me hopping this month. I think I ended with their dance recital last time. Now, on to awards day. A few pics from each one. I was so proud of all of them. I still can't believe my oldest just finished fifth grade.
Erin and her teacher, Mrs. Gazaway. She's the most nurturing, loving person you will ever meet.
Will, AKA the giant, standing next to some of his classmates as they receive their awards. The fifth grade teachers were not as good at making their honor's program memorable. I CAN say that because my husband is one of those teachers. I was like, "What? No power point slide show. No memories to cry over?" The three male teachers were just wanting to save time. Tsk, tsk. Next year, I may have to do it for them.

Bryn standing as they call her name for one of her many awards. She's such a smarty pants. She also is a really hard least at school. Maybe not so much in her room, but with schoolwork, she's a hardworker.This is Bryn with Ms. Ciliberto. She came straight from Heaven in the middle of a very difficult fourth grade year. As you can see from the picture, Bryn's a little teary that the year is over. She truly loves Ms. C. Ms. C retired in TN and came down to fill a spot of a teacher that had to depart midyear. We are so thankful she did.
The final awards program was yesterday. Dear ol' Dad received "Teacher of the Year" at Dug Gap Elementary. I was so excited to see him get to stand next to our fellow blogging buddy, Meleia Bridenstine at the countywide awards ceremony yesterday. She was also voted "Teacher of the Year" by her peers at Eastside Elementary. I was so proud of both of them. They both deserved to win.

Last, but far from least I have to give one last award.
It goes to the best hairstyle of the Month!!! Don't kill me Jenny! I just couldn't resist.

Terri, more than Jenny, I think I should get you for not photoshopping that pic. Holy crap, ME?! to tall and thin Ken----Congrats to all! I made a paper airplane with my certificate and flew it at someone. Thanks for capturing his certificate. It will serve as a nice virtual memory.

You are right, May is the new December. I can't belive that Will is going to be in middle school next year. I still remember him in childrens church, a bunch of years ago needing help using the bathroom. That's a special memory for Keith.

Joe & Cyndi Rogers said...

Congrats to everyone in the Richmond family! What a bunch of smarties! Terri, I know you must be proud. And I think that is a GREAT picture of Ken and Meleia!

But, my favorite is the one of Jenny. That is priceless!

And, I am learning how CRAZY May is--- the new December is an understatement!!

Love you,
