Ashton and Taylor finished up the school year with outstanding grades. They are both very smart and we could not be more proud of them.
Ashton aced all of her TAKS tests (state mandated tests) - math, science, reading - only missing 2 questions out of all 3 tests! This is such an accomplishment! She also finished up the year with an overall "A" average. She has always been very smart and we're so proud of her for finishing up her elementary career strong.
Taylor doesn't take the TAKS test yet, but he also finished up the year with all "E's" (the equivalent of an A). I'm also very proud of him for bringing up his citizenship grade. The previous 9 weeks, he received his first "N" in citizenship. He's not a touble maker, but he does like to talk. And that got him several marks in his folder. This last 9 weeks he tried very hard and I'm happy to say that he did not get one single mark in his folder! I'm so very proud of the effort he made!
Because of their wonderful accomplishments, we wanted to celebrate by taking the kids to dinner at the restaurant of their choice. This could have been budget-breaking, as my children are known to have quite expensive taste in restaurants, but it turned out not too bad.
They chose Red Lobster and we all had a great time!
