Remember when...

Do you remember when you were in 6th grade? I do! I lived in Bullhead City Arizona. A tiny town across the Colorado River from Laughlin Nevada. It was such a tiny town, that there was 1 elementary school and 1 high school. And as a 6th grader who had just moved from a cozy area of East Millcreek Utah I was totally prepared to be the "ruler" of the school as a 6th grader. Little did I know, that I would once again be the pee on! See, 6th graders went to the High School. Bullhead City High, if I remember correctly. I was a teeny, tiny 6th grader with a bunch of scary Jr High and Highschoolers. In one word let me describe my first day, terrifying! But as schools go, it was great! I got to go to school dances, meet a tun of people and I got to take band. In this band I learned to play many instruments. I learned the drums, the clarinet, the trumpet and the french horn. It was a fun year. My best friends name was Sunshine and I had a huge crush on a boy names Alex Martinez and my good old teacher named Mr. Talley. He was cool until he hit on my mom. YUCK! But, we had an awesome field trip to Lake Mohave. It was a Saturday trip, but it was awesome.

So why am I bringing this up? Because my sweet Samantha Kay has entered into that realm. She is now the ruler of the school. A big 6th grader! Is she excited? I would say yes, but I'm not sure. All morning yesterday and I was walking them into school she kept telling me to stop taking pictures. She was totally embarrassed by me! HER MOTHER!!! I told her that I would love to have pictures of me when I entered every grade, like my kids have and she just looked at me like I am so dumb. I guess I am! But guess what, when she is a grown girl and has her own babies she will be the same! And I can proudly say that I am glad I am her annoying mom who takes pictures of everything they do!

I love you my girls! I hope you all have a rememberable year, like I did!
