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 and her Award for Author of the Month

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!

    Very cool. How does one go about receiving this award?
    I’m sure there will be many many more awards in her school days.

      The teachers pick the student to receive the award each month and as the teacher explained it Amara is very good at telling stories and creating pictures to go with them. We are kind of proud!!!! THIS WEEK is the Science Fair – Kindergartners doing a Science Fair??? Who would have thought?

    And yes, she continues to win awards and in general just be the best grand-daughter you can imagine. Not everyone with great parents turns out to be an Amara, but I’m pretty sure you won’t get an Amara without them. Maybe a knock-off, but not the real deal.

    Yes Amara is a special girl! It’s fun to see how she has grown by going back to these older post. I love that you said both grandmother were there too, we all show up at the kids events and we take the front rows when ever possible! Yes we are that family that’s loud and noisey and arrives by the dozens! Thanks for linking with me 🙂

      I think even Amara knows how very lucky she is to have all of her grandparents so close by and always there to support her. I have to think it is one of the things that encourages her to keep succeeding. Should be wonderful to see what 3rd grade brings us!

      I’m really glad that you and Lisa do the Grandparent Linking Parties I have a lot of fun too going back and deciding which old posts I want to share and sure makes me aware of how quickly she is growing.
