School Awards

The kids' last day of school was on Wednesday and after the graduation they had a picnic and then handed out awards. Both my kids scored, errr... I mean did well this year. And of course, I have photos to help tell the story.

Okay so I only included this picture of Elisha and his friend Jayla watching the awards ceremony because I liked it. I figured I could do that if I really wanted to, so there it is.

Elisha and friends check out their honor roll certificates.

Only first grade and up can get on honor roll, so maybe next year Bethany will get it too since this year she was only in kindergarten. This year Elisha got on the Principal's Honor Roll.

Bethany was growing anxious watching everyone else get awards. She really tried to be patient, but if you know Bethany you know she is anything but patient.

Elisha also earned the Citizenship Award, because he's relatively calm and obedient and willing to lend a hand whenever it's needed.

Bethany earned a Math award.

A few minutes later I looked over and she was hugging her medal. She told me later when she saw this picture it was because, " I loved my little medal so much!"

She finally came over to show me her medal, although in the picture she almost looks sad, she was indeed very, very excited.

She also got a ribbon for Truthfulness. As busy and stubborn as my little girl can be I'm glad to know she's honest (Ms. Brenda said she always told her the truth, even when she was doing something wrong). Yay! Because let me just tell you, we've really had to do some work in this area in this past year. Her stories were getting her into a lot of trouble. Whew! I pray this virtue will definately continue.

I love the Truthfulness Award. What a great way to encourage kids to do the right thing. Your kids are so adorable. The color looks great on Bethany!

I don't know who Michael and Veronica are. Both Stacie and I keep seeing them comment on a lot of people's blogs (including our own) and it is almost word for word the same. Kind of annoying. I hope they don't start "following" you.

I'll tell Michael congrats from you guys. It was truly a blessed day.
