At the end of the year, the kids’ junior high has an awards ceremony where students are honored for all A’s and a few other special awards. I received notice a week before that Olivia would be receiving an award for all A’s. I assumed that all of the kids in her special ed class were getting an award and I thought it was great. I got someone to cover my first period class so I could go. When I got there, I discovered that she and another boy were the only ones from her special ed class that were getting the award. Not that it matters, but it somehow made it an even bigger deal. I watched as she sat through the 45-minute ceremony without any issues. She walked up when her name was called, shook the principal’s hand, and stood in the spot where she was supposed to. It was amazing! I was incredibly proud…as usual! Gabe was more than a little bummed…he got one B this year so he didn’t get an award!!!
Watch my girl get her award:
She never ceases to amaze me!
**Excuse the blurry picture…I took it with my phone…she was excited and moving around…and I was laughing through happy tears!**
