Proud Parent Alert

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.

    Ain’t being a proud pappa the best feeling in the world?

    Having stood in both pairs of shoes, being a proud parent is as gratifying as being a proud grandparent!
    Our congrats to the entire family.

  3. I learned a long time ago not to listent to my kids – especially when it came to award time. Predictably, they were grateful we’d ignored their requests. Congrats to your daughter!

  4. Congratulations, GD! Revel with a special cup of joe, or a Shiner–especially since I am out of Shiner region.

    Awesome! I know you’re REALLY proud of her. Send her my congrats and love, too!

  6. I have been corrected on the ‘one per grade’, and the post now reflects the correct frequency of awards.

    GruntDoc regrets the error.
