This is completely 100% a bragging on my oldest daughter post. If you do not want to hear me rave about Alexis then just close this window now! :) They just finished their first quarter and a couple weeks ago I had a parent teacher conference. Her teacher Ms. Walker basically told me Alexis was doing fantastic in school. She is in the top reading group, she is picking everything up with no problems, and she actually said, "if Alexis ever pulled a stick (like turning from green to yellow, you know...) she would probably faint." HAHA Then we got the memos home that Alexis would be presented two awards (on 2 different days ANNOYING! :) ) The first award was for meeting or exceeding all expectations for her grade level AND all 1's (like A's) for behavior. The second was for citizen of the quarter. They pick one per quarter, per grade level. They did them on different days which was annoying but also nice b/c Travis couldn't go on Wednesday but was able to go today. He also decided it was a great reason to just take her home with us, instead of finishing up her last hour, and take her to Dairy Queen as a treat! She was thrilled. So, basically my kid is rocking Kindergarten and we are VERY proud of her!!!
Accepting her first award.

Showing it off.

Waiting for her second (this was cute to me b/c the first day she was with kids her own age but this one was mostly 4th and 5th graders so she seemed so tiny. In fact when they called her name and she went up all the kids cheered and then started saying Awwww b/c she was so little compared to them. She was a happy, proud girl.)

Accepting her second award (only in a military school is your award presented with your Principal and 2 soldiers!)

Proud mama.

Proud papa (and little sister!)
