Those Little Awesome Moments

Emily was named

Student of the Week!

It’s a really big deal as only one student in each grade is selected.

She gets her photo up for the week and a special certificate as well as gift certificates to some of the local area businesses.

This is what her teacher had to say about her:

Emily is a wonderful person to be around. She is the sweetest, most thoughtful young lady to ever roam the halls of (school name). Her positive attitude along with her caring, thoughtful actions, make her stand out as a super Musketeer. Emily works hard in her classes. She completes her assignments on time and does so to the best of her ability. She is so friendly and kind to everyone. Listen up Musketeers of (school name), if you are looking for a good true friend, you’ll find one in Emily. We are proud of you Emily! Keep up the good work! Congratulations!

I Must Be Doing Something Right…

Sometimes I wonder… You know between the fighting and yelling, the talking back and temper tantrums, the scowls and frowns, the messy house and crying fussy baby… somewhere between all that chaos we try to teach our children to make good choices, to be kind and loving, to think more of others than themselves, and we wonder…. does any of it sink in?

Then there are moments like yesterday when we realize that, yes, it is sinking in and in the midst of all the numerous mistakes we make as parents, we are doing something right…

Elizabeth and Dorothy were both chosen from their classes at school to recieve the character counts (a program where they focus on a particular desirable character trait [such us trustworthy, loyal, kind, etc] per month and give a special award to a student who demonstrates that charater trait all the time – not just during the month they are focusing on it) award for Compassion. 

That tells me something.  🙂 

(And I am so proud of my darling daughters – and all the rest of my awesome kids too)
