I went to an awards ceremony at my daughters school on Wednesday. All of the first graders were rounded up into the gym and students were being recognized for academics, attendance and other skills. I knew Dee Dee would be getting some kind of award, but I didn't know what it would be. (all I got was a letter in her backpack saying my child would be getting an award). Well, the principal started calling off names for the A-B Honor Roll and Dee Dee's name was not called. I was pretty surprised, and a bit upset, because I spoke with her teacher a couple weeks before and he said she was at the top of her class. Anyhow, the next list of names were the straight A Honor Roll students...they called her name!!! I can not even express how proud that made me...I was teary eyed, a bit shaky and overwhelmed with joy. Dee Dee is my first baby in school and this is all new to me. As I saw my baby girl walk up and get her award from the principal, I thought of my Grandmother, who recently passed. She was the one who raised me and she kept all of my awards and special school memorabilia. I know she is watching and she is proud as well.( We love you Grandma!)
Well, I just wanted to share a pic of my smart little girl. I am such a proud mama! Thank you for reading and God Bless!
