Way to go, Sam!!!

I am soooo proud, I just had to brag!! Sam was named Valley View Elementary's Student of the Month!! I could just burst with pride!! Those of you who know him, know just how big this is for him! He works so hard everyday, always with a smile on his face and a skip in his step. If only we could all face our difficulties with the same diligence and determination! He makes me so proud to be his Mom! The fact that God found me worthy enough to parent this beautiful child, continues to humble me everyday. He's such a blessing to my soul.

Caught Red-Handed!

My little graffitti artist at work!


The evidence.

Seems we have a budding little artist on our hands here in the Bryant household! She is always into something, so when things get too quiet, I know its time to find out what Georgia's gotten into this time. Saturday (Valentine's Day) I found our little Van Gogh busy at work making Mama a Valentine on the Dining Room wall.....okay, well, it kinda looks like a little heart...........

Sam's Valentine Party

Sam and his aide, "Miss" Diane

Georgia thought she was soo big sitting at the table with Sam!

Lovin' at the Valentine party!

Class of 2021
Sam's class held their Valentine's Party last Friday morning. The kids all had such a fun time with crafts, snacks and opening their valentines. Of course, Georgia had to join in the fun, as well. She took a seat at the table next to brother and did everything the big kids did - even opened up some of Sam's valentines for him!! I tell you, this girl is 14 months going on 4 years old! Sam had fun and seemed to enjoy showing off his little sister to his classmates. Happy Valentine's Day to the two joys of my heart!

Guess who loves spaghetti??? She ate 2 big bowls full last night and by the looks of it, tried to lick her bowl clean!!!

My little Gypsy

I originally took this picture because Georgia was pretending to wear Grammy's earrings. She thought she looked sooo good! But now that I look at it, all I can see are those big bright eyes. She makes me melt!!

Georgia's 1st Pedicure

It was no small "feat" to paint these busy little toes!! She actually sat very still and watched my every move very closely!! I just can't get enough of them - I could just eat her up!!

My Mini Monet!

Or maybe Jackson Pollack is more like it!! However you choose to categorize it, Georgia created her 1st work of art last week!! We'll begin the bidding at $1.50......but Mama thinks it's absolutely priceless!!

The 100th Day of School

Sam's class celebrated the 100th day of school last week with a fashion show! Each child was to decorate a t-shirt with 100 things and then each got the chance to parade around in front of the 1st and 2nd graders to show off their work! We decided on stamping 100 baseballs and basketball onto the front and back of Sam's shirt, and as you can see, it turned out pretty cute!! We had a lot of fun and Sam was soooo proud - just look at that grin!
