Midyear Bonuses

I'm not talking of the monetary kind but the one most parents would enjoy having bragging rights to - their kids' accomplishments. Last Monday and Tuesday, Jerry and I attended the separate Honors' Assembly for high school and grade school at our sons' beloved SHS-ADC where Kyle and Jake received their academic medals for last year's performance.

I once wrote here about Kyle struggling with his Chemistry and about me being of no help at all with this. Well, he's pulled through and managed to snag a bronze. Thank goodness!

And... Jake, despite several reprimands for being "talkative" during class, got himself a silver! Way to start his academic career! LOL

  1. and a fourth kid would have given you the Gold. :P

    Seriously, these accomplishments are more than the accolade itself but the significance of the children's intent to ensure they have a good future - by doing well in school. Never mind the medals, but by honoring what the parents have instructed them to do - to finish school and be good citizens of the world - are enough mid year bonuses.

    I sound like Paparazzi.
