it’s 10:30 PM and were finally home!

I am exhausted! But one VERY proud Mama! Today we went to Rim of the World High School for a very special awards ceremony. It was for all of the students in the whole Rim School District who participated in this years Reflections Program. This years theme was “WOW!”

When they receive all of the entries they judge them on which go to district judging (which was this awards ceremony, it was the best that went to district judging), the best from the whole district go to council. Well guess who’s got picked to go to council? Yep! Samantha’s did! I believe she was the only kindergartner who went to council, now I am confused if council is also county, I mean if this is county judging then I am just “WOW!”

So Sam received a very nice trophy! Council judging takes place in April.

I’ll add pictures tomorrow! I am tired!

Guess who lost her 7th tooth today?

Yep, Samantha! Apparently she was eating corn on the cob last nigh and bite down so hard it pushed her tooth so it was sticking out. When I got her home she let me touch her tooth and I saw it was barely hanging on. I asked her if would let me pull it out and she said yes as long as it didn’t hurt. So I gave it a little tug, Sam screamed and out came the tooth. She stopped screaming and said “ohhh that didn’t hurt.”

So here she is with her 7th tooth lost! (Jan 28th, 2009)

Here are pictures of all her lost teeth:

  • 6th Tooth
  • 5th Tooth
  • 4th Tooth
  • 3rd Tooth
  • 2nd Tooth
  • 1st Tooth

I’m in love!

Annie Part 2!

I had to share this video as well! Here is Sam singing another song. You have got to give the girl credit, I haven’t heard her singing this one before.

Wordless Wednesday

Monkeys on the wall!

Sam came home so excited about the climbing wall. She keeps begging to take climbing lessons now!

Sam & Piano

Today Samantha moved up in her level in Piano. She is now in 1A.

Here Sam is with her teacher Sandy last summer.

She needs to go on Broadway

My daughter is in love with Broadway musicals. In the past year she has gone to three! Her favorite and also her birthday present from her grandparents was to go see Annie in San Diego.

Sam has loved watching Annie for the past three years and sings to us every day, even our three year old Sarah loves to sing Annie “ohhh morrow, ohh morrow, I wuve yew ohh morrow” That is how Sarah sings “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I’ll love ya Tomorrow”

So here is Sam singing for all of you!

I need to get this girl into acting!

Christmas Show Video

I kept forgetting to upload Samantha’s Christmas show for school. This is all three Kindergarten classes performing together.

Samantha called 911….. again

Well today Sarah let our little doggie jack out and well, he RAN!! He ran so fast we couldn’t find him. The girls and I went out quite a few times today searching for him and we couldn’t find him. So we came home with heads hung low.

Samantha took it upon herself to call 911, I overheard her talking to someone saying “I’m glad I called 911” I jumped up so fast and took the phone away. I had to explain to the nice operator that our dog got out and Sam though the police could help find him. I apologized numerous times to her and then sat down to explain ONCE AGAIN why we don’t call 911 unless it’s an emergency. She swears that it was an emergency. She needed her Dog back!

ACK! So about 13 minutes later a sheriff showed up at our doorstep. Sam saw him standing there and her jaw dropped. told her they would come and be upset because it was n’t an emergency.

anyways, so about 30 minutes ago I saw Jack running across the back yard and I lured him back in with a piece of cheese…

BTW- we figured out he is jack Russel Terrier and Chihuahua.
