Lots of good news!

Yesterday morning was an award ceremony at the elementary school. Chet was given the award for recognition of achievement in reading. This was a big moment for him!! He has struggled so hard with reading because of his apraxia, (it is hard to read when it is hard to make the sounds), and in the last few weeks he has made leaps and bounds with his reading! Yeah, Chet! (bottom row, far right in the red YuGiOh jacket.) I was so impressed with his classmates as well. He came back to sit with his class after the ceremony was over and they all gave him high fives. I thought that was a really nice show of support.


While the awards were being passed out, Beth was playing with my sunglasses. I love this little denim jacket and jeans set with the whimsical daisies on them. I think we need to do a little floral and denim photo shoot and layout soon!

I need to clarify that everything is fine at home... emotional isn't always a bad thing at all! I don't want to post all the details about it, but for those of you who know what it means to us, we know where Jessica is at last. Toss in some other family reunions, and it all added up to a lot of happy tears. I don't know if she has the info for this blog yet, but if you are out there Jessica, just know we love you very much!

I am swamped with the big trade show this week, and the designer dinner is in just a couple of days, so some friends and I are working hard to finish getting it all together. It will probably be a few days before I can update here or reply to emails, but by Wednesday life will be back to normal! Take care!

Tell Chet congrats! I know he has been working hard for that and he deserves the recognition! I know how busy you are, so I won't bother you right now, but pleeeease call me when you get a chance to breathe. (Once the dinner is over.) I miss you terribly.
