Pride and Prejudice
Our school year is officially over. It was a big one for us. An emotional year end for me. Maddie is leaving high school behind and Emma is leaving elementary school behind. I know I am completely biased but I think these two girls are amazing.
Allow a proud Mommy to brag for a moment?
Our Maddie had a tough time for much of high school. Our biggest struggle with her was getting her to take school seriously. Just when we were losing hope, the light bulb finally went off for her and after a less than stellar high school career she finished strong. She proved to everyone, especially herself, that she can do anything she puts her mind to. She might as well have been the Valedictorian we were so proud.
As for Emma, she was awarded the gold Presidential Excellence Award this year which was a pretty big deal around here. We are so proud of how hard she works in school and how seriously she takes it. That girl loves to learn and I hope that stays with her always.
Aside from all of this, the thing I am most proud of is our family. We are there for each other NO MATTER WHAT. I also love how close my girls are. There are almost 8 years between them but you would never know it. They are best friends and I'm pretty sure that is one of my biggest accomplishments.
