I have the best kids
So I said a lot of things have happened since my last post … well, I wasn’t even kidding!
I didn’t mention it at the time, but my daughter graduated elementary school at the top of her class with the Highest Academic Award and the Brian Gardiner (role model) Award. Let me tell you, I was positively dripping with pride!
Of course, my boy wouldn’t let his big sister top him. :D
When November rolled around, talk of Movember came up, and the whole fundraising and cancer research was the big topic at the house. When my boy asked, we explained what it was all about, with the mustache and raising awareness. Well, he decided that he wanted to wear a mustache every day in November too. So my sister talked to his teacher to make sure it was okay with her if he could do it. Thankfully, his teacher thought it was a great idea, and even suggested that she print out a pledge sheet for him. Joey went full throttle, and it ended up becoming this big deal at the school. His original goal of $100 was completely blown out of the water in the first week, and by the end of the month, he raised over a $1000 and ended up in the local newspaper and being interviewed by CBC Radio!
They continue to surprise me every day with their kind hearts, thirst of knowledge, and many talents. In between driving me nuts, of course. They are after all nine and fourteen. ;)
Okay, enough bragging for now. Maybe next entry I’ll talk about the novel I’ve been working on … for the past five years.
