And before 105 kiddos in the graduating class of her elementary school received their diplomas, the teachers presented awards. And guess which one Emma received??
The Presidential Award for Academic Excellence! The certificate is signed by Obama and everything. Ooooh, she's excited by that.

The award is about more than just academic excellence, though. The recipient must also be involved in service projects, music and a number of other facets of well-roundedness. And that would be my all-around great girl.
I'm so proud!!!
And my Hayley-girl... well, she just blew us away at her award ceremony. Scott and I received an invitation to the ceremony, so we knew she'd been getting something. We just didn't know what.
How excited were we to hear our girl's name called THREE times! She received awards for: Honor Society; Academic Excellence in Science and Academic Excellence in Language Arts.

Go, Hayley, Go!!!!!!!!
We'll be up and out early Thursday morning for Hayley's promotion ceremony and then we'll officially have a HIGH SCHOOLER!!!
Holy moly. That's all I have to say. Holy moly.
Oh wait. I do I have more to say. (Of course I do. Hello!?! This is the one place where I can chatter away. Hahaha.)
My girls are awesome and amazing. So there.
