Proud Mama & Papa!

Major brag ahead...I am SO proud of Ella!  Each month (starting in October) her school awards "Student of the Month" awards to various students for different things.  The teacher chooses the students, and the principal hands out the awards in a ceremony in their classroom.  There is an award for loving to read, being able to count, etc.  But Ella got the "Super Citizen Award", which was explained on her certificate like this:

This kindergartener is a wonderful part of our class because she is ALWAYS looking to help out.  She loves to help the teacher in any way that she can and is always ready to help a friend in need.  Her teacher can count on her to be a helper to a friend and never has to worry about anyone feeling sad in class because this girl will always cheer them up with her kind words.  She is a super friend and citizen here at school.

It makes me cry just to read it again!!  I am so beyond proud that my girl has such a kind heart and is so caring.  We are so blessed!

First, the principal talks to the class and explains that even though we don't all get an award, we are very happy for our friends that do get awards...

Then the principal reads the little explanation about the award and calls the child up to receive the award...

All the kids and their awards with the principal and teacher...
BTW, they are all dressed like that (and not in their uniforms) because it's Red Ribbon Week to promote a healthy lifestyle, and today is "dress like a rock star" day because eating healthy ROCKS!

And not to leave out my little firecracker, we also had a very proud moment for daddy when I was working on a shapes puzzle with Everett...
Me: What shape is this?
EC: Triangle.
Me: What shape is this?
EC: Square.
Me: What shape is this [it's an oval]?
Me: No, it's like the shape of a football, but it's called an oval.  Let's try again.
Me: What shape is this?
EC: Rectangle.
Me: What shape is this [trying the oval again]?

I give up.  Gary has him too well trained.  If I try to change the channel on Saturday or Sunday, Everett screams at me, "NO MOMMY!  Daddy watching football!"
