    I'm so proud of Steven, he won the Gold Medal, 1st Nationally in the Trio Educational Talen Search from this summer. He won the State then his entry was sent to the national competition and he won it. It is an audio narrative that I wish I could let you hear but I don't know how to put it on here. But here is the pic of his medal and certificate:

    The narrative talks about being kind, fair, non-judgemental, he wrote it and narrates it.

    That's so wonderful. I'm proud for you. Isn't it funny how our kids can make us so proud of them. My little guy, who is in the 1st grade, brought his report card home and I am so proud of him. He also sat down with me and got all of his make up work done tonight because he has missed a lot of school due to the flu AND strep throat. Anyways, congrats to you on raising your son to be such a great success.

    Oh Allanah, the poor little guy! Steven is out for the entire week, he has the flu, bronchitis, ear infections and sinus infection. He ran in the track meet sick last weekend and I had no idea just how sick he was! He went to school today for the assembly just to get his award, then his grandma took him back home. Since I work next door at the Elementary school I was able to be there too.
    Your little guy sounds wonderful!
