Birthday Blessings

Hi everyone, sorry I've been MIA. A lot has happened the last couple of weeks and I am just now able to relax. My son has been very busy with Cub Scouts, camping, birthday and projects so you know what that means. When he's busy, I'm busy. It's been such a rewarding month for me and I'm so proud of my not so little boy.
Let's recap: He was accepted to two International Baccalaureate Spanish programs. Yes, it's a lottery to get in the programs but never the less he is a great student and deserves to be in this program.

He achieved his Arrow Of Light for Cub Scouts. This represents an achievement of four consecutive years as a Cub Scouts with all of his requirements met.

He bridged over from a Cub Scout to a Boy Scout at the Webelo Woods camping trip where our team won trophy of the year in competition. It really paid off all there hard work in practicing every sunday for the past two months.

We celebrated his 11th birthday party with friends and family. He actually celebrated three times. Once with the Boy Scouts, once at school and my dear friend Damaris picked him up from school and bought him a birthday cake and than we took him to one of his favorite restaurants for dinner. Is he a lucky boy or what? Actually I'm a lucky mom to have been blessed with him.

Needless to say it has been one crazy month for me. Not to mention that I've had technical difficulties at home with my computer so I haven't been able to visit blogs or leave any comments. I'm up and running and life is good.

Today I took pictures of my niece in different spots of Homestead. We decided to drive by a beautiful orchid nursery called RF Orchids to take some pictures in the entrance. When we arrived the owner was outside talking to some customers. He noticed that I was taking pictures of her and invited us on a tour of his gardens and encouraged me to take photos inside. Needless to say I took some beautiful pictures of her in the gardens and we had a great time.

There is so much more I would love to talk about but really who has two hours to read one persons blog. I'll be back soon with more to share. Thanks for stoping by and for your comments. I hope to visit my fav blogs soon. Have a wonderful spring break week.
