My Smarty Pants Brother

We're totally catching up with stuff from the last few weeks, so our posts are a bit out of order!

Last Monday was Holden's last day of 5th grade, which is also AWARDS DAY! Excuse mom while she's all obnoxiously proud and braggy and showing off all of his awards!

Look at the blue/purple ribbons in the front...each ribbon represents a card marking period of this year that Holden made the ALL A honor roll! One ribbon is was red and represented the A/B honor roll, but Holden got mad and threw it away (perfectionist!).

We are SO SO SO proud of Holden and all of his awards, but our favorite is THIS...

It's the Presidential Award of Academic Achievement with the President's signature (or what appears to be a reasonable fascimilie!).

Did you notice anything different about Holden????

Look at his teefs!

Brace Face!!!!!

That's a HECK of a way to kick off Summer Vacation!!!!

Congrats Holden! We're so proud of you!!!!!

Way to go, Holden! Cool teeth, too!

Great job Holden. I heard girls like boys with braces

Sonic said...

Why does Holden have braces? Did he eat something he shouldn't have? Knuckles does that all the time, and I'm sure he'll need braces soon too.

Congrats on the awards!

Way to go Holden! And good job Salinger, for making sure he does his homework and studies. As for Brace Face...does that mean you'll get his chewing gum now?

Kitty+Coco said...

Holden, don't let them tell you that you can't chew gum, can crunch hard candy, or eat a caramel apple. Have some fun this summer! Give that brain a rest.
Um..I have to point out that I have seen a lot of dingus shots of Sal lately. I thinks he needs a Adam Leaf maybe.
