A Good Night

 Every once in a while we have a night that I want to relive over and over.  Tonight was one of those nights for our family.  My son Lincoln was asked to memorized the entire Gettysburg Address for his 2nd grade program (fitting that his name is Lincoln huh?)  Lincoln doesn't like being the center of attention and in the past when he has been asked to do speaking parts in things, he has usually turned them down.

He said yes to this speaking part, which surprised Josh and me.  He got the part at then end of January and has been working hard on memorizing it ever since.  Tonight he stood up in front of so many people and gave the Gettysburg Address perfectly.

I can't even tell you how nervous for and proud I was of him.  It was a moment I will remember forever.  This boy was just bursting with confidence after it was over and he felt like a million bucks.  As a mom, those moments when my kids do something hard, that they are nervous/scared to do are some of my favorites and tonight was one of those amazing nights.

We are heading out tomorrow for a fun weekend of skiing, snow shoeing, a sleigh ride and more skiing.  Its will be a fun mini vacation and I am so excited for it!
