Quentin's Induction

Quentin received an invitaion to be inducted into the National Junior Honor Society last week. Jeff and I were so proud of him and so excited! He made it sound like it wasn't a big deal but it was and it is and we are so happy to be the parents of this amazing little man.


We went to the ceremony last night and even though he was a good head shorter than all of the other kids there, he looked so grown up and ready to take on the world! Maybe it was the purple tie that I made him wear. He told me that no one else would be dressed up-but I still made him dress up! It was a short, sweet ceremony explaining how they were chosen and an explanation about what it means to be part of this society. They told us that his being chosen was based upon grades, citizenship, leadership, and character. WOW! What a privilege. Jeff and I were grinning ear to ear the whole time I am sure! Quentin even let me sneak a picture in!



I know that I say how amazing he is all of the time and I am sure that some of you are tired of hearing about him-but he never ceases to amaze me with the things that he says and the actions that he displays of being one of the greatest people that I have ever met. He has a great mind, a great spirit and so much integrity. He knows who he is and knows what is right for him. He stands up for what he believes in and stands proud beside all of his decisions. I am so happy to be his mom and to be learning new things from him every day!

What he's already in honor society.
I'm not kidding when I say he has to marry Taeya or Alayna or Kensley. I got all sorts of options one of them must do.
