Emma's turn to shine

Today Emma received a Star Student award at school.



This is her first one ever.  You may remember she was a little put out when Audrey got one in her first month of school.  We had to have the discussion about different personality types and how bouncy, talky people aren't worse than quiet, compliant people but at school they are less likely to get awards.

Emma has been trying very hard since then to be on her best behaviour because she really wanted a Star Student  badge.  She has been ably helped along by the boys in her class being particularly naughty over the last few weeks.  I am a little suspicious that it might be partly an encouragement award for us parents - for managing to get her to school - and even do homework - throughout this entire ordeal!  Who cares what the reason - she is very proud to have a Star Student badge and we are very proud of her!

Congratulations Emma!
