Riley: Our TERRIFIC kid!

 This morning, Riley was honored at school as a "Terrific Kid"!!!
 First grade is the first year you can be nominated for this award, and Riley was beyond excited to finally earn this coveted title. He has watched his big brother, Corban, be named "terrific kid" for several years now, and was thrilled that it was officially his turn!! 
Each month, a different student from each classroom is chosen based on three things: showing a positive attitude, exhibiting the character trait of the month, and being a responsible citizen.
  January's character trait was DETERMINATION. 
 We are so... proud of our boy for being recognized for this particular character trait!
He truly is one determined little guy and that is evident in all he does. 
My deepest desire is that the Lord would use that amazing amount of determination we see in our Riley for His glory and His alone!!! I pray Riley would know, understand, and depend on the Holy Spirit as his ONLY source of true strength and determination!
  Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

We are so proud of you little Buddy!
