She's one Terrific Kid!!

Yesterday, at Roebuck Elementary, Ashlyn was given an award that put a very big smile on her face!! Her teacher, Mrs. Bush, nominated her for Terrific Kid for this 6 weeks at school. Ashlyn was beyond excited! I am so proud of her. She IS a good girl....especially at school. She loves to learn and doesn't not want to have to "pull her ticket" for being naughty! Yesterday before it was time to walk Ash down to the library, Mrs. Bush introduced her to the class as the new Terrific Kid and all the kids started clapping. She then asked the class why Ashlyn deserved to be Terrific Kid and the hands went flying up. Here are a few of the responses:

"Ashlyn always pays attention."
"She is nice to everyone."
"She always does her work."
"Ashlyn is very smart."

The kids were so sweet to Ashlyn and so excited for her. It put a little lump in my throat to hear all those little 6 year olds saying such sweet things about my baby girl!

We are so proud of you, Ashlyn! You are definitely One Terrific Kid!

Every single day when I drive over the "new" bridge close to my house, my breath is taken away! The trees are absolutely gorgeous. As you get to the highest point of the bridge you are also at the tip top of the trees. You can see beautiful fall colors for miles. I love this time of year. It has always been my favorite. It's like each year God takes a paint brush and makes it even more beautiful than the year before. So....because I am just about to come out of my skin each day when I leave the house and see the beauty :-)...I decided that today would be a great day to take my precious children out and get some pictures of them and the beautiful leaves. They turned out wonderful! Here are a few for you to enjoy!
