Awards night

5th Grade graduation is tomorrow at Tommie Brown Academy, so tonight there was an awards dinner. All 3 classes were there with their parents. Our friends at First Christian Church across the street provided dinner, spaghetti and fixings, very nice as always.

Our older boy got four awards which was probably fair, he's got a ton of ability but sometimes falls short on effort and motivation. I had that problem later in life, so I try and help him with it but I think that he's going to have to find a way to make it happen for himself. I really appreciated the way his teacher found a way to give at least one award to everyone, she included a lot of "most improved" awards to go along with the "best" awards. Older boy got a trip for ice cream with his mother too. A good night.
