Two Terrific Kids

End of the school year also means "End of School Year Awards!"


Jaina received the "Terrific Kid" award for the last nine weeks of school. This is quite an honor since only one student from each class gets picked each semester. She was nominated by her teacher for her willingness to help others and her ability to get along with anyone. ( I secretly wondered why these two characteristics don't show up at home?)


Jayce was a terrific kid in his own right :) He was awarded the "Most Effort" award from one of his therapists at school. Way to go, Jayce! He even got recognized at the district-wide dinner.

Then a few days later, Jaina received more classroom awards. Her class voted her "most creative". I think that fits! :)

I'm so proud of my kids!

  5. Jess, thank you for your comment to my post. If I can help someone help someone else, then what happened to me makes a little more sense. I am so sorry for your friend and if you want to direct her to my blog or have her email me I can tell her of the things that have helped me along the way. my email is jeannadholmes at hotmail dot com. I have found that knowing I was not alone in losing my twins has been very comforting. Take care!

    PS: your kids are too cute!

  7. My Mack was terrific kid earlier this year too. Must be an SC thing.
    I didn't need the certificate to tell me he was terrific, but it does make you feel good when people recognize them for something you already know. Being certifiably terrific rocks!
    I know you're proud of your kiddos! I love it when they get recognized for being great. Makes them want to do even better!
