Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

My Top Ten Senior!

Monday night was the annual Honor's Banquet.  Students are recognized for their UIL participation, academics, offices held, etc.  Rachel was honored for her service in Student Council for the past 4 years, TAFE (Texas Association of Future Educators), FCCLA, A Honor Roll, Drum Major, UIL Participant and...being #4 in her class!  Yes!  Rachel finished in the top ten percent of her class!!!


She was also the Senior Class Secretary...and I was a Senior Sponsor so I had the great joy in presenting the certificates to the Senior Class Officers.  Yes, that's me on the far left and my Rachel is second from the far right.  They were a fun group to work with this year.
Here are my girls.  (Flourescent lighting is so hard to photograph under...crazy hues.)
And Rachel with her friend Sarah:
It was a fun night to recognize hard work, dedication, and effort....a night to thank the Lord once again for all that He has done in Rachel's life.  There was a time, when she was first diagnosed with Arnold Chiari, when we wondered if our daughter would even be able to finish high school, or even be able to attend school.  God in all of His wonderful mercy and grace had an incredible plan for her precious life.   She clung to Jesus and trusted His plan...and oh how He blessed.  We are rejoicing over and over again in the work He has done!  God is so good!
