Brag Time

One of the joys of parenting is the right to brag.  Is it right to brag?  I don't know.  Is it fun to brag...heck yeah!  So here is my brag session.

First up is Emily....she is a very creative young lady.  Like us bloggers, she gets writing prompts.  Except she gets graded on hers.  The latest prompt she had to do was using descriptive powers.  The first paragraph originally started like this: The girl looked out.  She could tell she was not on earth.  She saw stuff.  The paragraph continues in that fashion.  Her job is to dress it up.  And so she did...

Arlene looked out at the moon.  She could tell that she was not on earth.  She saw toys, video games, papers, pencils.  She even saw the Statue of Liberty.  Everything on earth was floating by.  Every statue was making faces and every doll was dressing itself up.  Arlene could smell something very stinky.  She could hear a voice calling Kayla.  Kayla!  The voice made her think about what was probably happening at her house, was her mom calling for her sister to dinner?  Then she felt a tap on her shoulder.  Suddenly she realized that she was not alone.  Her mom was there with her telling her to wake up.  Arlene woke up and was back in her room.
****************************************************************

How is that for descriptive power?  It kind of makes you wonder what I have been putting in her food doesn't it?    She has made lots of progress in a very short amount of time.  I am very pleased with all of her efforts!

Which brings me to my next bit of bragging rights....for the third semester in a row, Kristin has made honor roll!!!!  We are so very pleased with her as well.  This year has been a big struggle for her, academically and socially.  She is still finding her ground, but I believe in the end she will land gracefully and firmly where she wants to be! 
 
Congrats to you both!!  You rock my world!

That's so awesome!!!! My children are still all quite young (not in school yet) but I understand those school years ages really require lots of homework time for kids and parents. This is a definite bragging for you as it means YOU spent the much needed time with her. :)
