Cute Cousins

It has been a busy week! I have been trying to wind everything down for the year, so I have had no spare time to show you these two precious girls. Our niece (Kasey's DD) spent Memorial Day with us, so I took advantage of that to practice some more with my new lens. It was nice (and actually easier) to photograph someone else's child for a change. We got to pick up our new computers (all of KISD got new MacBooks), so I've been trying to transfer and back up all of my stuff. I am finally getting around to posting these. I hope you enjoy!






p.s. I don't think I've posted on the blog to brag on myself. We got our TAKS scores back a few weeks ago, and ALL of my juniors passed. I know you may be thinking "Melissa, you teach Pre-Cal and Calculus--they should all pass." I would reply to you that I have many students who are in my class but don't necessarily belong there. For example, Mommy and Daddy think little Johnny is a genius and belongs in all of the hard classes even though Johnny can't solve x + 8 = 10. It was not a guarantee that they would all pass.

And regarding those who DO belong in my class--67% of my juniors got commended. I had one girl get all 60 questions correct, 2 miss only 1 question, and 4 miss only 2 questions!

Now if only my AP kids do so well on their AP exam...

Those are portrait quality pictures! Very pretty. Love the background!!

And way to go on the TAK scores. I haven't had a tast of that pressure yet, but next year we can sit and have a margarita after it's all over, and I'll know how you feel.

You've got to come visit soon. There's a restaurant on the Riverwalk just calling your name...Yummy mexican food!
