Goodbye, Senoia property! Sold it last week, and now Jeff, the boys, and I loaded up the rest of the beautiful timber-frame house pieces and are heading off like turtles, with our house on our backs....

I am so very proud of Asa!! I put my engineer kid in a humanities-strong program, and he rocked it with all A's! His only B was in science... which was a highschool course, and was less about the content and more about learning how to meet different requirements for different teachers (a wonderful lesson in itself)! I could not be more proud of and impressed with this kid for his hard work and dedication!!

 Although he had planned on Liberty Tech for next year, the calendar (210 day, includes classes June and July) and hours (M-F 8-3:30) just didn't quite fit for our family. I'll be meeting his geeky-engineery needs through enrichment courses next year, and he will be back with the wonderful group of kids in Konos Juniors! 8th grade, here we come!!

Movin' on UP!

Congratulations to Addison, my little Sophomore! He finished strong with all A's.

I cannot say enough about how perfect this year was for him. He is SO happy to be at Konos Academy, and I absolutely love how wonderfully supportive, loving, and amazing his teachers (AND classmates) were this year!

I'm one happy momma!

Ms. Manners

So, after starting the day with the typical farm chores and schoolwork, I told the kids we were heading to Atlanta to visit Daddy's new office. I explained that we would be meeting new people, so they needed to be clean, dressed in clean clothes with no holes, and to use their best manners. Olive promptly went to her room. She came out in super cute attire complete with a purse and her "Girlfriend's Guide to Glamour" book under her arm. She showed me that she bookmarked a page that she would need today.

There are some things about Olive that remind me SO much of my Mama Net. She would have this kid in cotillion and all sorts of other things I wouldn't do!
