My 2 Teenagers...

What I have been up to...
Sorry I missed the last Happy Homemaker Monday but...
Our two teenagers keep us on our toes!
Especially our oldest who is a High School Senior.
here are some pictures of our past couple of weeks.

Our Children are pretty much complete Opposites:

Our Daughter Isabella Likes to be home reading a book, watching movies, listening to music, drawing, crafting or shopping with me - during her down time, but usually she's studying or running off somewhere. Most of the time it's a study group, volunteering, or a school meeting. She likes to be involved and go out, she is easy going and will try new things.  and if you cant tell she loves taking pictures.

Our Son Adam is happy being at home reading a book, watching a movie, playing video games, or playing with the dogs. He loves Pizza and his mommas food, but doesn't like to try new things especially restaurants.  He is a sweet boy who helps me around the house *if I ask but pretty much groans about everything lol  and again if you cant tell he hates taking pictures.

Bella at her NHS Senior banquet where she received her NHS Bib Blue  for 3 years of service, she is an officer: Vice President.
Yellow Honor cords for being apart of organization for the past three years & going above & beyond.
Her Medal she won For Project of the year Goal was $500 Her group raised 1,378.
NHS together raised over $3,000 for La Posada house
(the photo of them presenting check is in my last post)
I am so proud of her and all these kids!

The next photo  She received a STEM award for her Engineering Project.
Here She is sneaking a photo with Adam -
He got Commended in two of his STARR tests!
 sadly his campus did not have a ceremony.
But our family  got together to celebrate him, Where did he want to go... you guessed it he wanted PIZZA! lol
and I was not allowed to take photos hee hee.
We are still waiting to see if they will be having an 8th grade graduation ceremony.
And then Senior Prom...

And Last but not least She Picked...
We have been SO BUSY with the process, many late and sleepless nights, some tears (not from me yet) but her Daddy and poor Grandma are having a hard time with her moving away.

I know I will be a mess come August, for now I am only having a hard time with the mascot. (sun devils) Blah!  I know hate is a strong word, but really? couldn't they have picked the Sun Angels? or Just the Sun? or something else :::insert eye roll:::

 I am so happy for her-She is spreading her wings and she's going to soar! of course I'd love for her to be close, UTEP is only a 20 minute drive away, but She was blessed with a wonderful scholarship for ASU, invited to apply & accepted into the Barrett Honors program and made it into the engineering program.
Plus they have robotics! She was hooked.
So this is our life at the moment, lots of paperwork,phone calls, research, finances, travel plans, picking building/dorm, roommate search, making lists of what she will need. all while trying to plan her Graduation party and also her Confirmation which btw is on the same day...Prayers Welcomed.

Thanks for Listening.
Love, Row.
