via Geena at CodeBlog, the outstanding story of a man with a midlife career change. Terrific story, no excerpt, just enjoy it all.
My daughter went to her schools’ awards ceremony (she’s a Sophomore) expecting to get recognition for the AB Honor Roll, and told us not to go. Like a couple of dummies, we didn’t.
She came home with Six awards!
- World History Achievement Award
- 10th Grade Citizenship
- AB Honor Roll
- Chemistry I Outstanding Student (only one given per grade)
- Drama I Citizenship Award (only one given per grade)
- English II Outstanding Student (only one given per grade)
I’m not a person who either lives through their kids or sees them as personal validation, I’m just so proud of her for her own accomplishments! Well mannered and reasonably sharp, a winning combination.
