School Awards Time
In September, I wrote about Jarrett receiving the 1st Grade Math Award on the same day that Jake received the 5th Grade Math Award. Weird, but only Jake's teacher called us first to tell us about the awards ceremony.
Yesterday, Jake's teacher called that he was getting an award again. His assembly was at 8:30, usually the younger kids have theirs first. So Tera and I get up early (and before 10:00 AM is early for me) and go to the school for Jake's award ceremony. We didn't stick around, but 20 minutes after we left, Jarrett got an award too.
Both of the got the respective "Creative Writing Awards". Kind of weird that my kids both got the math award the same day, then both get the creative writing award the same day. The two are as different as you could possibly be. Jake is an extrovert. Tall and thin. Copper hair. Jarrett is an introvert. Shy, to the point that he hides behind me in public and covers his face when people look at him. He is muscular and big. Brown hair. Quiet and sensitive. Jake is loud and outgoing.
I am so proud of my boys. Creative writing? Geez.
