Kathryn is graduating from Grade 8 and next year, another of my kids heads off to the wilds of high school.
Yesterday I got a call from her school. They wanted to make sure I could be at the awards ceremony this morning because she won an award.
So, without her knowing a THING, Shawn and I took the morning off work, told her we had an appointment at the bank and after she left for the bus, we, and the two older girls got in the car and left for her school.
Seeing her and her brother Shawn’s face as they walked into the gym and see us in the bleachers was wonderful. They were so happy we were all there.
Watching her do a double take that they called her name for Acheivement in her class, and then slightly dumbfoundedly walking up to accept her award, priceless.
Then, if that weren’t enough, both Kathryn and Shawn received honours in their overall academic standing for the year.
I am bursting with pride!!
Congratulations Shawn Micheal and Kathryn!!
