Things have been so crazy hectic since September and I have neglected my blog. How could I? :))

I finished another semester at law school. I was trying to double up on classes so that I could graduate by July 2009, but there is one class (Constitutional Law - Part 2) that is not offered in the evenings during the Spring 2009 semester...thus I have to take it in the Fall 2009 semester. That means, I won't graduate until Fall 2009. However, I will be taking the Bar Exam in February 2010 and this way, I will prep for the bar exam during the same time that I am in my last semester of law school. So, it is not all bad. :)

Amie is in High School, freshman. She is doing really well academically. Also, she is playing on the Varsity Team for Basketball and finished playing Jr. Varsity Volleyball. She also wants to do track when that season starts. She is 13 years old and stands 6'1'' tall.

The other kids are doing well too. Josh is back from NYC and is focusing on his school work. I am still homeschooling him and it is nice to see that he is serious about his studies and is talking about college. He wants to re-enroll into regular high school for 12th grade. I do not know how he would accomplish that with his modeling, but he may take a one-year break from modeling.

Teddy and Emmanuel are doing well too. We are talking about going back to Africa in the Spring to visit their birth country. I do not think that I can afford to take both of them because the tickets are about $2,000-2,400 per person. So, we will see what happens.

Tamarah and Erna are doing well too. Together they get into so much trouble! Separate, they are well behaved. I have gotten into the habit of taking one or the other when I am out and about running errands, etc. If I take both of them, the encourage each other to get into mischief. Many people think that they are twins.

Amie's 8th Grade "Graduation"

Update, July 24: Thanks for the nice congratulatory emails about Amie's promotion and awards. That is really nice to receive. Just for information... somebody congratulated my "Haitian Cutie" -- actually, Amie and Joshua are my biological children. :-)

Original Post, July 23:
On Monday, July 21st, my daughter Amie "graduated" from the 8th grade. She had been attending the Language Academy, a public school within San Diego where students are taught in three languages, Spanish, French and English.
Amie graduated with high honors (3.9 GPA out of a 4.0 possible) and was named the Spanish Graduate of the Year. She gave a speech at the graduation ceremony.

Her principal is to the left of her and one of the school board members is next to the principal. Amie gave her speech in Spanish and in English. Her friend received the French Graduate of the Year award and gave a speech in French and English.


Amie starts high school in September. She has been accepted into the International Baccelorate Program at San Diego High School, one of the top rated high schools in the United States (according to Newsweek Magazine).

I am a proud mom! :-)

Grades are in...

I ended up with a 4.0 GPA for the Spring 2008 semester. So far, my average is 3.72 GPA for my law school studies. I am what is called a 3L now, meaning one more year left before I am finished with my Juris Doctor degree. :-)

For my European family and friends... 4.0 is the highest grade you can get.

Thanks for all of your support and encouragement!
