My niece, Kelsey, is in the 4th grade. This morning, during the assembly, she received an award from her class for Loyalty. It was fun to be in town when she got this! She and her best friend, Amy, were cutting it pretty close, but arrive just as the bell rang for the program to start!
The program is part pep rally, part honor recognition, and lots of fun. I was really impressed with the lively display of enthusiasm by the kids and teachers. I remember when my Aunt Marj was visiting me and how fun it was to bring her to my school. Now I get to be the special aunt!
