Kate - Courage Award Emma - Citizenship Award Ryne - Courage Award
I hate to always have to say it, but I have the three greatest kids in the world. They had it rough, we moved to a new town, they started a new school (in the middle of the school year no less), their dad went into the hospital, and then he went in again. But, amid all this craziness they adjusted incredibly well. I was suprised when I started getting notes home, from both teachers that all three of my children were getting awards. They were in school for a total of six weeks and impressed their teachers so much that they earned these awards. Way to go kids!
I'd like you all to meet my son Ryne. Ryne is a typical boy in a house full of girls, he often thinks he gets the short end of the stick. So here's my story: The other day while driving home from school I slammed on my breaks to avoid hitting a dumb bike riding child (who chose to turn her bike directly in front of my van) and in the process Kate dumped her bottle of water in my purse. So a couple of days later the twins and I were at the store and I was shopping for a new purse. Ryne says to me "what are you getting?" I respond, "I have to get a new purse my other one got ruined." There is no response here and I can tell Ryne is thinking about something. A little while later Ryne says, "Do you like to buy new stuff for yourself?" I say, "Sometimes." Ryne says, "I like to get new stuff too, but I never get to because you always spend our money on stuff for you!" Ouch, but seriously folks I'm not much of a shopper and he gets plenty.
