I got home from work last night to a normal, quiet house, kids downstairs contentedly playing on the computer. All was well.
Till suddenly there was the thunderous sound of both kids racing upstairs, Brianna yelling, “MOMMY! MOMMY! MOMMY! GUESS WHAT!”
I figured the news had to be momentous, and indeed it was! The school gives honour awards to the three students earning the top marks in each subject in each grade. Brianna has won not just one, nor even two, but THREE of these awards! Which means she has one of the three highest marks of all students who took Drama, French (Immersion), and English!
Needless to say, I’m pretty damned proud of her!
