As we say above, this is mainly for friends and family. Michael's blog on the Middle East can be found here. Most of our other links can be found below on the right, but be sure to keep up as well with our family website, here. We also have discussion groups for genealogy, links to genealogical information on us, and our (semi-private) Flickr and YouTube accounts for those who are invited. You can also get a quick-navigation guide here.

Sarah's School's Blue Ribbon School Award, Plus, First Honors!

Tonight we attended a special Mass to recognize Sarah's School — Corpus Christi School in Bailey's Crossroads, VA — only 321 schools nationwide got the award this year, only 50 of them private schools. So the Catholic diocese of Arlington was proud to have four of those (and a fifth was a private Christian school in northern Virginia). Full story here; picture of the award ceremony at left below (from the Catholic Herald here).

Sarah's in the school choir, so she sang at the Mass, but I didn't take pictures there. The picture above left is Sarah with her blue ribbon (all the kids wore them) and the back of the special program for the celebration.

(As always, I leave her face off the public blog. Family with access to our family Flickr photosteam can go here to see the full pic and others.

To gild the lily, Sarah got first honors for her first quarter report card for fourth grade this week!
