It's the end of the quarter and time for our school awards assembly!!! When we received our notice that Rainee would be receiving an award.... she was soooo excited!!! She couldn't wait to see what it would be. Then she stopped everything to decided what she'd wear... she wanted to look her very best... so after going through just about every outfit... then the decision was made... she was going to wear her outfit from the first day of school.... she said... "It makes me feel special and I want to look my best if I'm getting an award!!"
At the assembly, she received the Governor's Reading Award For Excellence!! She was so excited and proud of herself... you could see it all over her face!!! Once the assembly was over she came over to me and told me... "Mommy, I was nervous and a little scared but I didn't cry... I just smiled!!!" I can't tell you how excited I was for her.... not only for the award... but because she was so delighted.... for not crying!!! Because, you see, at every other awards assembly she would get herself so worked up... she wouldn't smile, then once she was off the stage.... she come over to me sick to her stomach and she'd cry her little heart out!!! It was awful seeing her so distraught.... So, it was heartwarming to see that she noticed how she'd grown... this was huge!!
Yeah for Rainee.... this was a red-letter day for you... Congratulations!!!
