    Some of you might remember my two girls helping me on my Camaro restoration and might even recognize this pic of em from about ten years ago:

    I just wanted so share their accomplishments of late. This year our lil County High School Marching band the Grizzlies were honored to attend the Washington DC Memorial Day Parade. They all flew from California to DC last Wednesday to start their journey.

    Accolades from our Congressman.

    My older daughter Randi is on the yellow line front and center with her sister Samantha just to her right. Both playing the clarinet.

    This is a couple days ago when they got to DC.

    Randi is a Junior and just celebrated her 17th birthday yesterday and Sami is a Freshman and will be 15 next month. It wasn't till after they left for the trip that the school had the annual awards ceremony.

    In addition to both having well over a 4.0 GPA they both earned some top awards.

    Randi won an academic bar (to go on last year's academic letter),
    Excellence in Chemistry
    and the Dr Philip M Smith conductors award (There is only one recipient each year)

    Sami won an Excellence in Biology,
    Excellence in Geometry
    and the Outstanding Freshman in English

    I couldn't be any prouder :D

    Thank you both!

    I was tearing up writing the post and thinking I'm not worthy.

    I guess we did well raising em, and yes, it went by so fast and to think of what the future has in store for these two brilliant young ladies.

    that's awesome man, I am sure you are one proud papa. I have to imagine that's one of the best accomplishments to know you've raised great people, if not the best accomplishment.

    By far my most important accomplishment. I think they will do well in life. Both want to be teachers and I think both will get a free ride for college.

    Thank you all, I'm beside myself.
