Obviously, blogs are for bragging when our children are awesome. So may I present the Student of the Month for December?
The theme for the month was responsibility so apparently at some point during November, she was responsible while at school.
We went to her ceremony this morning. Ryan got all dressed up in his formal suit because he was very proud of his sister. When I told him that we were going to Sister’s school, he happily shrieked “OH!” and ran off into the other room. When he came back, he had packed himself a lunchbox. Because that’s what you do to go to school, you know. He put in applesauce pouches and trains.
When we dropped Elizabeth off at the door of the school, Ryan burst into tears. He thought he was going in with her. We just went around and parked and came right in so that was okay with him.
When we got in line to sign in at the school door with the other parents, Ryan got in line too and solemnly took a visitor sticker too.
When Elizabeth had gotten her award and was standing up to get her picture taken with the other students, Ryan ran up to her and gave her one of his applesauce pouches. He also ran up to her in line and gave her a hug. They really like each other.
After the ceremony, we had cookies and juice with Elizabeth and then walked her back to class. She was more pleased about the cookies than the certificate so that seems about right.
