The school year ended recently and all our girls did great! They all made honor roll throughout the year. Emelyn was given the Citizenship Award for her class - we were so proud of her! She is a wonderful kid! Her teacher said she was always willing to help out the other students even if it meant pausing in her own work. I was able to attend a field trip with Eme to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. We had a fun day! Eme's bff, Kaeli, and her mom also went. Here are some photos of the girls that day and also the last day of school.

This was not easy but it was fun!

I'm trying to find the right balance in life. I'm attempting to be a great mom, wife, daughter, Christian, friend, teacher, and homemaker. Some days are better than others. I'm learning it's ok to not be perfect. I'm learning to be content in all circumstances. I'm learning to take better care of myself so I can take better care of my family. I'm learning to enjoy the little moments in life instead of always focusing on what's ahead. I'm learning to embrace the now.
