Steven's Eagle Scout Project 2014

The beginning of Summer 2014, Steven knocked out his Eagle Project.  He redid the garden for Hope Day School.  The garden club needed new garden beds.  Uncle Ronnie was so proud of his family having Steven working there.  

Sam Hacker gave his brute strength to help these boys.  In awe that Matt's friends and Steven's JV lacrosse coach would come help Steven.

Steven's friends worked tirelessly and showed up each day.  Steven only asked his friends to help.  He did not have anyone from his scout troop.  

Cousins and their brute strength came to help.  

Enjoying lunch after doing some serious manual labor. 

Just because I am catching up, this is Steven getting his LIFE.  

Uncle Ronnie happy  to have us in his school everyday.

A Valedictorian Graduation

Graduation week began with an awards ceremony where Steven received the Valedictorian award.
  We were so happy for him that he reached his goals.   

Grandpa came to enjoy the morning to celebrate Steven.

Biting down on the gold!!!

These very talented boys all excel both in academics and athletics.  

I had to hold back tears as he marched in during commencement.  

And these two boys won the "Best Husband and Wife" award.  Apparently, the teachers had tried to separate this dynamic duo but to know avail.   

Steven and Kyle closed down the school graduation night.  They were the last ones there saying their goodbyes to everyone and soaking up every last minute of their junior high experience. 

The "Husband and Wife Couple" had to find a few teachers to give their apologies for their behavior.

End of Year Party

Sadly this picture perfect year has come to a close.  Love that Jack and Marky could be desk and rug partners throughout the year.  Fun to be able to sit with your best friend throughout the day.  Such an amazing year with an amazing teacher.  

Loving Marky's enthusiasm for the parachute.
