24 Wins

Owen's 3rd Season of Spring Baseball
He's played for Coach Jay all 3 Seasons, and they have been the "Venom" for the past two years (not my favorite name, but Moms don't get to vote)
Owen has improved in bats & fielding this fun to watch the boys really start playing ball!
Mimi is our Biggest Baseball Fan ~ she offers $1 for every hit :-)
Coach Jay's pow wow's after each game are always fun to listen in on...he then gives a game ball to the MVP of the game
These hard working boys were 24 wins, with only 1 loss!
(and that was all in just two months time!)
I love this smiley face!
The Venom have celebrated with Braums more times than I can count; Owen tried Rocky Road for his 1st time...and fell in love (it was my fave growing up)

End of Elementary for My Ella

My Ella Bella is graduating from 4th Grade...
typically this isn't a big deal, but when you go to Jenks, it is!
5th Grade at Jenks is a whole new school, another mile away, and it merges with Jenks East - which is over twice the size of Jenks Southeast!
"Ella Ruley"
Mrs. Roberts 4th Grade Class 
mine's the sweet one in the middle ;-)
And now it's time for the entire school to "Clap them into 5th Grade"
They paraded through the entire school while parents and all other students whooped & hollered, gave hi fives and clapped & cheered. It was super cute!
Our newest friend this year...Talya :-)
Why was Ella put in Mrs. Roberts class this year? Because of this lady right here...there is no doubt in my mind that we had a divine appointment to meet. And, if it weren't for our our girls being in class together, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have happened. (Ella loooves lil' Lennox)
Top 10 Cool Things About 4th Grade:
3 of Ella's other closest friends from her class...Brianna, Riley & Jordan
Love this Lady! She was a great fit for my creative cat!
Thank you to Mrs. Roberts and all the other teachers who poured into my Ella's life these past 3 years. What a tremendous blessing it was to be able to be a part of this amazing school!
