Joey started the 6th grade today, his last year in Elementary. He's excited to "rule the school" and especially glad to have Mrs. Cope, the same teacher Maddy had last year. Every so often you are blessed to have a teacher that believes in your child and helps them to reach their potential. Mrs. Cope did that for Maddy last year and we know she'll have the same influence with Joey.
He is growing up too quickly. His shoes are already a Mens 8, he's almost as tall as Jeni, and he's grown out of most of last year's clothes. It seems like just yesterday he went to his first day of Kindergarten in Las Vegas (below). Almost everything about him has changed, except maybe his handsome smile.
