Wall of Fame, Take Two

Alternately titled: "For Reals This Time"

So we went back to the school today for the Wall of Fame ceremony. And this time, we weren't the only ones there.

Mmmmmm! Re-heated, day-old pizza!

Per usual, I made an ass out of myself by doing things like taking photos of photos. The photos the school took for the Wall are so indicative of Sam and Jack's personalities.

Sam = kind of anxious, eager to please,
smiling his "I'm supposed to be smiling" smile.

Jack = Casual, relaxed, and quirky.

Quinn was not overly impressed with the ceremony. But last year he was so disruptive. This time, he was absolutely silent and compliant. I love VTech.

Ceremony Scheremony

It was really cool to see my two guys get their certificates. Jack behaved so well and sat so quietly during the ceremony. And then he did some crazy, gyrating handshake with the principal when his name was called. I think he was excited.

Both guys had fun at the pizza party that ensued. I got many kudos for my two smart little boys. I think they're pretty cool too.

True to form, after eating pizza, Jack chose to come home with me and Sam went back to class without even saying goodbye.

They're such good teammates, but they are so different. All I know is that I'm lucky to have these guys.


  1. Whew! You made it!

    And we're lucky to hagve you sharing them with us. :-))

  2. Awesomeness! (Aren't you supposed to be packing?)

  3. OMG, Sam and Jack look EXACTLY ALIKE.

  4. Too cute! I'm so proud of them for you!

  5. Impressive continuity with the lower 2 photos. One kid smiling, the other one drinking. ;)

  6. Love the pics - the one of Jack (on the wall) is so sweet!

  7. You are - and they are lucky to have you for a mom. I'm glad to see the practice run allowed for a perfect execution of the actual day :)

  8. Congrats to Sam and Jack! I love Jack's pose in his Wall of Fame pic. :-)

  9. Hey, yesterday was just a dry run, right? You were just, urh, timing yourself, getting it down to a science, shaving off a few precious seconds on the pizza delivery.

    I love those pictures. Jack's totally cracked me up.

  10. Sweet! I just thrill when days go this well!

    Seize it!
