Very busy blogger and one proud mama

I've been a bad blogger, but life has just been too busy this week. We had something on the calendar every day/night this week. I did decide to come home on Monday and not attend the Senior Slide Show. I hate that I missed it, but I had to be home SOME time this week. Ü

Tuesday was Wall of Fame Induction and Benjamin received two honors. He received a Spirit Scholar award. This award goes to those students who have a 3.0 GPA and above AND show Character, Responsibility, Compassion and Respect. Benjamin has a 4.0 and we are very proud of him. He also received the All Academic Southwest Conference award for his accomplishments as an athlete and high GPA.

Wednesday was the Baccalaureate for the Seniors, Thursday: Fine Arts Banquet (he was the only one to receive a 2 yr pin for Spanish Club and his involvement with there and today a track meet. The 4 x 800 team placed first. Next week is going to be tough as they have to place 1st or 2nd in order to qualify for state.

Tomorrow is graduation and Benjamin and I will be gone for that and then hit several receptions afterwards.

I also have some VERY exciting news...Aaron and I have BOTH been asked to be a guest designer for Paper Temptress. Aaron for May and myself for May and June.

But even more exciting than that.....I have been after Aaron to draw some images for me that I wanted to enter into a contest. The winner gets their images made into stamps and we (well AARON) won!!! Poor kid! I drew these AWFUL shapes and explained to him how I REALLY wanted them to look. Then he took them and made them perfect! I can't really say more than that, but I am so excited and can't wait to get the sets and create with them.

Hope you all don't mind this proud mama sharing.

I hope to find time to post a card tomorrow morning.
