Proud Momma

I just wanted to share with you how proud we are of Chase. He has accomplished alot lately and I wanted to show you a few pictures. He just finished Cotillion and learned lots of good life skills and even learned how to dance. He tried to teach me a few steps but it was pretty much worthless! Ha Ha! I have absolutely no rhythm or coordination!

 He even won the fox trot competition!

His biggest accomplishment was winning 2nd place at the State National History Day Competition today. He and his two friends designed a group website on the Berlin Wall. They won the school competition and went on to Regionals to win first place. Then...they went on today to win second place at the State competiton. What an accomplishment! Now they will move on to Nationals...
I'm a proud Momma!



I'm going to show you some of my latest living room accessorizing on Monday.

Also, check my Etsy store for some new items. Don't forget Mother's Day!

Have a great Sunday!

My what a well rounded son you have! I think it is wonderful that your area still does a Cotillion. I can tell he is going to go far in life! Good for you, your husband and Chase!

He has a beautiful smile!
