WOW….another school year in the books!  I really love getting the first day and last day photos of my girls.  It amazes me how much they change in such a short amount of time.  This year, I noticed more than past that both of them not only have changed physically, but both have matured WAY too much :)

You can see that we lost the battle of wearing make up with Hanna this year….She really has turned into a little fashionista and make up and hair are EVERYTHING!  She has spent countless hours watching You Tube videos on different types and techniques.  She earned her title “make up and hair artist” for the school play this year.  Even though it makes her look way too grown up for 13, we try and keep her grounded and nine times out of ten we are sending her back to her mirror to remove about 50% before we walk out of the house :)  She continues to excel in school receiving 11th grade level scores on her standardized tests this year
(she is finishing the 7th grade!)….just wish we could get her to quit worrying about her cheerleading and social life so she would actually study for tests and turn in homework on time to higher her GPA!   She’s a great kid and we really can’t complain too much.

Abigail has graduated from her temper tantrums when she doesn’t get what she wants (FINALLY!!!) and has probably matured the most this year.  She has started really asking a ton of questions about how things work and is a lot more interested in the details than she used to be.   Sadly her third grade teacher battled breast cancer this year and the school did a wonderful job making sure the kids understood why she was gone a lot, but she had a great substitute that she loved too.  Her teacher has shown these kids great strength and the power of God’s love can get you through.  Abby also achieved high scores on her Iowa test showing that she is capable of 7th grade coursework in most areas, a BIG accomplishment for a 3rd grader and we are so proud of her!  She is also a very social butterfly and comes home frequently with her friends parents phone numbers written down asking if we can get together outside of school.

Overall, we are blessed to have them at such an amazing school.  Lake Worth Christian has been a wonderful christian environment for them to learn academically and spiritually.

Here they are!
