So So So proud of my boys. They had their 5th grade moving up ceremonies tonight. Julian sang his little heart out. I sat with my future daughter in law's parents. He declared his love for "Leah with an H" and she was the class president and a nice girl. Thank GOD he has good taste! David chose not to sing the Bruno Mars song, but he didn't make faces, and so I am proud that he can show restraint.
