Dr P. keeps a breast of Lily. Frequently sending home papers with her that pertain to things that Lily may be interested in. Recently she sent home a form asking if I would allow her to sit for her SAT's. I agreed and the test is coming up in a few weeks. She also pushes her to reach her full potential. Now, I'm no fool and this is public school so when Lily looks good the school looks good but Dr. P cares.
Two weeks ago she sent home an invitation to a Dade County School Board meeting/award ceremony where Lily would be receiving an award. An award for what? I had no idea. Last night was the ceremony.
We left the house quite early as I was quite sure with rush hour traffic it would take forever to get there, it didn't but once we arrived the place was a mad house. So Many People. Luckily, we had left early but for the wrong reason. Hah.
We were separated, students receiving awards to the left, and family members centre or right. As is typical with anything to do with schools or school boards it didn't start on time, it was nearly an hour late and the board member/unpopular politician who was giving the award was even later as he got caught in traffic. Finally things got under way and the ceremony began.
|Meeting the big wigs|
|All 4 of these kiddoes are from Lilys school. I think it is funny that Karina and Lily chose very similar dresses.|
|The FABULOUS Dr. P. and Lily|
|And of course, The Pickle, who even wore a dress for her big seester.|
Well done oh quirky one. I'm proud of you and your academic success and you should be too.
