Abram's Phunny Phone

I know, I'm dorky--Ph, Ph...haha
Isn't he just so darn cute...?!?!

Jonah's Recital

I'm such a slacker! Jonah had his recital on May 1 and while I posted it on facebook, I completely forgot to blog it.
He did a great job, we are very proud of all his hard work (read: all the times I had to remind him to practice). Now that he's done, he's got some new material to work with and is sitting down at the piano just for fun again. It's nice to have a goal, but it's also nice when it's been fulfilled and he can move on to something he's excited about again (the way he was when he first got The Fifth to work on, for example!).
Here ya go, I hope you enjoy!

Award Day

We are so proud of Jonah and Ava! They each received awards at school. Jonah got two for memory work. One was Scripture and one was for Historical Documents (Preamble, a bunch of Amendments, Declaration of Independence).
Ava received Scholar of the Year for her class (only 1 girl and 1 boy in each class get this honor)!!
They both have worked so hard this year--we are really loving their school and the education they are receiving is incredible.
(Sorry for the horribly fuzzy pictures!)

We are so proud of Jonah--he worked hard at piano all year doing a game his piano teacher invented called Musikopoly. He had to practice each week a certain amount, attend concerts, recitals, do a research report on a composer (can you guess who he chose?), do a recital at a nursing home, do online studies, memorize his favorite songs and more.
He earned his reward: A Limo Ride!!
Here he is with his pal Jason and hanging out the window and looking oh, so EXCITED standing in front of the ride! Ha! Great job Jonah!!!!!
