First up was Andrew's band concert on Tuesday night.
The day before he casually said, "Oh, yeah, by the way Mom, I'm doing a song with some of my friends from band." He was nervous but he did an amazing job!
There was a Celebration of Learning open house at the boys' school on Thursday night. The kids all got to show off their projects they've been working on.
Jonny's Japan project
Daniel's Invention project
Andrew's Wax Museum project--Wilbur Wright
Here he is giving his speech. All the kids are giving their speeches at various times, so it is hard to hear but he did a great job.
He did this project board all by himself! All I did was buy him the letters and help him find a few pictures on the internet.
Michael accepted an award on Friday at the Sun Corridor EDGE (Economic Development for the Global Economy) event. The award was given to Wisdom Natural Brands for Overall Achievement as a Proficient Exporter.
Here he is with the Mayors of the cities of Phoenix and Eloy, Town of Oro Valley, and former Gilbert Mayor John Lewis (who is now President and CEO of the East Valley Partnership).
He also did a wonderful job on the panel, answering questions about how Wisdom Natural Brands got started with exporting and giving advice to companies who wish to do the same.
Emily's middle school awards ceremony was on Friday night. She received a certificate for having a 4.0 for the first three semesters of middle school (and will probably have a fourth semester of all As)
Every time I said, "Let me get a picture of you," she was immediately surrounded by her sweet friends.
Finally got one of just her
Saturday night was Mormon Prom. They all had a good time! Nathaniel's date Veronica is so sweet. He has such a great group of friends!
Nathaniel, Veronica, Makenzy, and Cole
Here they are at dinner before the dance
After Prom they came over to our house to play games for a while. I think they all had a great time!
