Bursting...

...with pride. My little girl graduated from elementary school today. She gave a commencement speech in front of three-hundred people. Received the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence, and a letter from the President. (Had to explain to both girls that it's still okay not to like him.) Maintained a 4.0 average all through her elementary years. Just accepted into the Honors Program at our local middle school.

I hate to brag, but sometimes you just have to.

Congratulations, Kira! I love you more than I can say.

  6. I think you should frame the Award/letter and then Kira's well reasoned argument why the president sucks.

    Now THAT is something for the scrapbook!

    Hurrah Kira. Now hide the black eyeliner, as I feel an Emo phase approaching...

  9. Congratulations to your whole family on a job well done! That is truly impressive -- 4.0 all through elementary school AND speaking in front of such a large crowd? It's not bragging, just giving credit where it's due. Love to hear good news like that about the future of our country b/c too often you only hear negatives about young folks coming up these days.

  21. If Kira's achievements didn't make your buttons almost burst, then what would?! What a terrific achievement. All that without summer programs and plenty of free time...who woulda thought such a thing possible! YAY KIRA!

  23. That is pretty huge. Do you feel like an empty nester yet? I think bragging about your kids is a beautiful thing but you're being so modest. She does all that and still find time to be a crack addict! Now that's setting the bar high for everyone else!

  24. If you can't brag about your own kid in that way, well you can't brag at all. Congrats!

    And also for her having a smart enough mommy to teach her about the President in the way that the school books don't.
