A Week to Celebrate

This week has been a special one for our family. My son's baseball team advanced to playoffs for the first time since he played t-ball. My younger daughter has just qualified for gifted services. And Emma, my fellow blogger, has been declared officially well in the past week. And while she missed almost every day of school from November to May, she is recognized this week for making the all A honor roll. What an accomplishment for her! 

Other updates: Book Wars has begun for the summer in my house. It is a six-week contest that requires a certain number of pages to be read and summarized. There are pretty hefty rewards for making goals and especially beating me. My son is currently winning with nearly 1000 pages read in the last 7 days. Pretty good for a third grader!

And last, but not least, my husband and I have been married 15 years this week. What a 15 years! This is what our anniversary table would look like if we had time for a quiet dinner!

I am off to an awards ceremony for Emma tonight, a perfect place to spend my anniversary!

  1. What beautiful china! Congratulations on 15 years together. Your children shine because of your success. Thanks for linking it up to HSH!

  2. Congratulations on celebrating 15 years of marriage, congratulations to Emma, your son, and your youngest daughter. Sounds like there is much to celebrate at your home! Your Lenox china is gorgeous. Hope you get a chance to slow down soon and enjoy a quiet meal together at this beautiful table setting. And kudos to you, mom, for setting the bar high. What a great idea to have a summer reading challenge. ~ Sarah

  3. Congratulations on all of your wonderful news. So much to celebrate and such a beautiful table to celebrate with (maybe you steal a few moments for dinner at that table).

    Looking forward to having you join "Where do you keep it all? - Part 2"

  4. Your Lenox china is so beautiful. It is similar to Lenox Eternal which I recently purchased. The china, crystal, and silver make a lovely tablescape. Happy anniversary!
