Our Cellphones Are Put Down!

I watched a report on The Today Show this morning that President Obama is pushing for kids and parents to put down their cellphones and spend more quality family time together. I'm sure he'd be proud of me. Clara, Timothy and I spent time together at Ocean View Beach playing volleyball, making sand castles, splashing each other and simply enjoying each other's companay. Just so you know... I only used my cellphone to capture these beach shots.

Keep Sowing into Your Children

Keep sowing and pouring into your children. The results will show up favorably. Trust me.

College Fair... Here My Kids Come!!!

Your children are never too young to attend a college fair or do a college tour. I took Clara and Isaac to a college fair held at the Chesapeake Conference Center last night. It was such an empowering experience for them. They picked up a lot of information, captured some Kodak moments and left knowing that college is certainly an attainable thing.

Congrats on Graduating Timothy!

I got to Timothy's school at 7:50 am just so that I could be one of the first parents to get a front row seat. Today is Graduation Day! My scholatic prince was dressed in his pinstrip slacks and vest and sky blue bow tie. Oh, how he looked sharp. And, when his homeroom teacher, Mrs. Hamill, called his name to come across the stage, I bolted out of my seat because I need to capture this moment on camera. Congrats son on all of your achievements today. In addition to receiving awards for Perfect Attendance, Honor Roll, President's Education Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement and his promotion certificate, he was also recognized for being "Citizen of the Month" for October 2013. Intermediate school is over and now he is headed to middle school. I pray God's favor over his mind as he moves forward in his academic pursuits. Copy and paste this link to see him receive his awards http://youtu.be/X7QGEgVX0zU.

That's Right... I'm Building Up a Wordsman!

While looking up a word in Isaac's Scholastic dictionary this morning, the idea hit me strong: I am going to have my son to read the entire dictionary just like Malcolm X did -starting today. Imagine what his vocabulary will be like when he enters 6th grade in the fall?! I am excited. I dare you to challenge your children to do this as well.

Slurpees: The Perfect Show of Appreciation

I love Clara and Isaac. To show a token of my appreciation and love for such awesome children, I stopped by the 7 Eleven behind our apartment complex and bought them blueberry and mango slurpees. When they got home, the slurpees were waiting for them in the freezer. They smiled. So did I.
