Awards Day

Today was awards day at Brooksters school. She was so excited because the teacher had told her she was getting an award. She asked me over and over again for 3 day. " Are you going, Are you going" and each time she asked I gave her the same answer. YES. I asked why she kept asking and she said she " Did not want me to forget about it" I asked her how many times I had ever forgot something that was important to her. She said " never but there is always the first time for everything and I don't want this to be the first time. "

I have to give her credit she was covering all bases. She also told her Mimi to help remind me. Her Mimi takes her to school every morning. They kept up this tradition even after I stopped working because they both do not things to change so she kept going over to her Mimi's every morning for breakfast and to be taken to school. It was fine with me since we live right next door and all she had to do was walk across the yard. This morning after she took Brookster to school she called the house and asked if I was up. I told her I had been up since Brookster came over. Well, Brookster wanted to be sure I did not go back to sleep.

Well enough with my compulsive daughter and on to the awards. She got 5 awards today. The first one for was achieving excellence in academics. Only 20 children in the whole 2nd grade got this award. :). She got in the 50 point club in the accelerated reading program. Handwriting award, Good Conduct award, and Citizenship award that was signed by the State Representative.

I am very proud of her and I love her more than anything in the world. I love how hard she works for things and achieves her goals that she sits for herself. She acts so much older than she really is. I am so glad that I have stopped working and is going to be spending time with her this summer. I hate that I have missed so much time with her, but I will be making up for lost time this summer.

Thanks for letting me brag about my little girl.
