Friday, a week and a half ago, was the date of a huge accomplishment in our family!
Dan finished his last class of many, many classes taken over the last 6-7 years! The class ended with him having to write a large paper....these are some of the books he used as resources! He was so happy to be done and even more thrilled to get a 96% on the paper!! :) Over the years, there were many times he worried and stressed that he would get a bad grade, especially on papers. It got to the point where I would just snicker whenever he voiced his worry.....he nearly always got super good scores on the ones he worried the most about!! :)
Just this morning he sent me a happy message that he got his final grades and has a 98% average on the class!! That means he maintained his 4.0 GPA the whole way through those 6 (almost 7) years of online school! Wow...I have an amazing husband. I am so proud of him and so happy for the relief he feels that he is DONE!
All the books got put back on their shelves, his little study area in the kitchen got cleaned up.....oh yeh! :) Now I can pull out my long overdue honey-do lists!! :) Just kidding!
(Excuse the quality...a few of these pics were taken off my Ipod)
We celebrated by taking the family out to a Mexican restaurant in Marianna that we had never eaten at before.
Food & Fellowship night with our small group, Sunday night...Ms. Julya was enjoying a candied apple slice.
Monday, August 19, was the first day back to school for the kids. Danny is a sophomore this year and Tamara is in 7th grade. I am looking forward to another good year of studies! :)
Danny had made coffee for us to enjoy while we did school/book work on Tuesday.
We've been having LOTS of rain....over 38 inches since the beginning of June!!
Back to School Bash on Friday, with the Homeschool group at Tallahassee Skate Inn
Doing the conga line....
Danny, Dylan, Preston, Victoria, Baylee and Kayla
Dan and his little friend, JuJu
The group minus a few families that had to leave early.
After the rollerskating party we did a little shopping. Dan was trying to decide if a green handkerchief would look good on his head. He and Danny were being silly and cracking up and I caught it on camera! :) Heehee!
I love my boys! :)
Bridal Shower for Susan Drawbond on Saturday morning.
The happy bride to be filling her plate with yumminess! :)
The little girls gathered around to watch her open the gifts...maybe dreaming of the day it will be their turn!??
Susan, her sister Beth and good friend Ashleigh
