Awards Day

Class of 2017
Oh boy...
I was not prepared for today.
How can I be the Mother of a 6th grader?
Well, I am not "officially" going to allow myself to be called that until August.
For now, I am officially the Mother of a son who just finished 5th grade and just so happens to be the best son in the world.
The one who got an award for art...

and for the A/B honor roll...he missed the A honor roll this last nine weeks.
You know what...he has a lot going on, a lot that most other kids his age will never have to encounter, so for him to "slip up" and make a B...it matters not one bit.

He is just so awesome.
I cannot wait to see how he continues to make me proud!
I think we have both learned over the years that the students who don't make honor roll are just as important as the ones that do - some kids just have to work harder or struggle more than others.
It was a hard, hard lesson to learn, but it put life into perspective and enabled me to really enjoy moments like this:We are so proud of Julien!
