Yesterday was the first of what I know will be many awards ceremonies that I will attend in Amara’s honor. Our amazing kindergarten granddaughter received the Author of the Month Award yesterday. Her Daddy is also an author so she comes by these talents naturally. Both of her Grandmothers and both of her Parents were sitting in the front row to enjoy every moment of The Awards! We watched as 4 classes of kindergartners filed quietly into the Media Center and sat down cross legged with their hands in the laps. They were all so well behaved. They were all excited to see their fellow class mates be recognized. Each recipient was called up by their own teacher and handed their award while the teacher gave a speech about each of their talents. They then proudly walked to their Principal who shook their hand, gave them a folder for their award and helped them on to the stage.
Amara actually earned this award last month but it was while she was sick with the flu and her teacher wanted her to get the excitement of receiving it in front of all her classmates. It was a wonderful moment for all of us. Everyone was very proud — including Amara!
