Party for the Bells

We had a little soiree for some friends of ours. They have been long-time friends and neighbors. They have 2 kids the same ages of ours who had also been friends since the first grade. Since there last name is Bell and ours is Christy our kids were often in the same school groups.

Anyhoo, almost 2 years ago Pat, the man Bell took a job in San Antonio. Their oldest child was in college but the younger was still in HS and they didn't want to uproot him for his last year of school (by the way he is valedictorian of Katie's class) so Teressa (the lady Bell) stayed with her son here in Houston while Pat commuted on weekends.

Graduation is coming up and thus the family Bell will be free to relocate to San Antonio. So we had a little party of close friends to say thanks and wish them luck. We will truly be diminished by their absence. Teresa has been president of about everything she has touched and has volunteered more hours than 3 mere mortal PTA members combined. Since 1st grade she has been listed as our emergency contact for the kids. They have her number programed in their phones to this day.

Best of luck Bells, if they new better, they would be having a party in San Antonio in your new neighborhood right now.

Top 10 %

It's official, Katie is in the top 10% of her class! In Texas that's a pretty big deal because you are automatically admitted to any of the Texas State schools. Tomorrow we have a breakfast with all the other top 10percenters and their families. The kids will be given they graduation cap and gown and they can wear it for the rest of the day if they choose to. Not only is Katie in the top ten percent, she was voted one of the 3 girls in her class "Most Likely to Succeed" and there is almost 830 kids in her class. So what do you think about that?

In the picture above she hs being congratulated by her principal (Bill Lakin) and the Superintendent of the Klein Independent School district (Dr. Jim Cain).

Does this sound familiar? Yes, you have heard it before in 2006
