Bragging time! Last night we went to an awards ceremony at the high school, where Son Number Three got a medal for getting a 98% in math last semester. Only four kids in each grade were honoured in each subject, so it was a nice accomplishment. It was a fun and inspiring thing, to see these awkward, gangly kids all dressed in their finest, walking across the stage to shake hands with the principal, trustee, and various other important people. It's great to be able to cheer for your kids and publically acknowledge them. How often do you get to do that? My son was a handsome figure, tall and lean in his black suit. With his flaming pink hair standing out above the rest.
The moment has been captured for the Yearbook, pink hair and all. I couldn't be prouder.
