S IS FOR . . .







S is for . . .

Sterling

S is for . . .

Scholar

S is for . . .

Sagers
(As in, Christian!)

Congratulations to Christian who was awarded the Sterling Scholar in Music from American Fork High School!!! But there's more! Read on.










Now, hold onto your hats everybody, because, we found out at 11:47 p.m. last night that:


S is also for . . .


Yup! After winning at the school level in January, Christian competed at regionals yesterday, and he made state finals! Yes, I did do the "Dawnce of Joy!" Bunches of times! Competition for the finals will be held on March 2 with the winners announced on television on March 23.

S is also for . . .

Selebration!
Syched!
Sertifiably Selestial!

What? Why are you looking at me like that? No, really. What? And, here you thought that my kids got all of their brains from their father. Ha! to that!




So, now. I'm not done yet. Hang in there with me, alrighty? I've got something more to say:

S is also for . . .

Splendid!
Superb!
Sublime!

And that's exactly how I'm feeling about not only Christian, but also about all three of my awesome kids. Truth be told, it was Ashley's uncompromising and determined desire to do her best in school that blazed the way for Sean who always did the same, who blazed the way for Christian to likewise always do and be his best.

S is also for . . .

Siblings who inspire excellence
Siblings who always support each other
Siblings who admire, cherish and love one another

S is also for . . .

SOBBING!
(As in, me.)

You should be so proud of your own accomplishments, Mama Dee! You have instilled some wonderful things in your children. I hope that I can inspire my own children to greatness like you have with yours!
You will have to let us know when the winners are announced so that we can watch right along with you!

CONGRATULATIONS CHRISTIAN!!!!

Your buttons must be bursting off that designer sweater of yours! This is so well deserved and couldn't happen to a finer young man. Congratulations Christian!

That is wonderful! Congrats! I love how music can bless our lives ... and I am so blessed to have children with a musical talent to bless our home as well!
I take it you are still waiting for the "B is for" posting regarding BYU. Why do they wait so long to inform incoming freshman? At least we are busy with the high school musical to not fret too much over it. We have heard "yes" back from the other 5 universities (and several more seeking her out).

Way to go Christian! At first, I was guessing S was for Sean. Christian really knows how to out do himself and be a superb kid. To think, he does all that AND participates in all of your antics. He's one buSy bee!

Ashley said...

"He likes playing and watching sports, especially baseball." Well, you learn something new everyday!

WOOHOO! Way to go Christian. Of course, who here is really surprised? We will eagerly await the next level of competition. Good luck.

Hooray for the Sagers! Way to represent the family Christian! The spotlight has to shine on someone...but it really is a team effort. :)
