Pepper slept in a bit and then spent the whole day getting ready for the evening. By the time she was dressed in her floor-length formal and we were walking in, she looked and felt like a princess. Because of the expense of the banquet tickets, we made it a girls night out and left all the wild and crazy people home with Daddy and Sunshine.
Like every mother in there, I was thinking, "please give my child an award." Of course she got three! The first award was a Citizenship award in Geography. This award goes to a good student who is also considerate of and helpful to others in the class.
The second was for track, "Most Improved." She earned this award by shaving 38 seconds off her mile time in a single meet. Coach Eno said, "When she came off the track and I told her that she had cut 38 seconds off her time, she cried and so did I." Isn't he wonderful?
Finally, she received highest GPA in Pre-AP Biology. This from a child that previously was not a fan of science. She appreciates Mr. Boggs and his teaching has made her love science. Her GPA in that class is over 97.
