Well, she has just about finished middle school and is on to High school.   Holy shit!!  They had their award ceremony last night and Delaney received 3 of the 5 awards.

She received the NYS Attorney General Triple “C” Award (given to a student who has shown a commitment to learning, to their community, and to their fellow classmates while demonstrating courage in the face of academic or person difficulties.  Nominations were sent to the NYS Attorney General’s office and the winner is selected by that office).  

She also received a Teacher’s Choice Award (Teachers are given the opportunity to select a student to receive this award.  These students have shown a keen interest in a subject, have special motivation, and may have done an outstanding project or who have shown tremendous amounts of growth.  Teachers write a personal letter honoring this student).  Mr. French, her math teacher selected her for this award.   She has also received this award 2 other times in Middle School.

The last award is the President’s Award for Educational Excellence (This award is for eighth graders who had an average of 89.5% or above for the four terms in grade seven and the first 3 terms of grade 8).   There were 103 students in her class that received this award (1/3 of her class).  That is really terrific!   Almost all the girls on her soccer team also received this award!!

We also found out last week that she was the 8th grade student of the month for June!   What a way to end your 4 years in middle school.  We couldn’t be prouder!   Love this kid!

Well I had my surgery- went from a “double dang” to “barely boobs”, from sagging to perky.

They took 1000 g & 700 g. 1000 grams = 2.20 pounds- feels like more.

(Kay C- this is the best picture I can do- no actual footage allowed)

It feels so good! Minus the pains of surgery and stitches.

The flowers above were from Jan and Ed & English Landing.

Thanks for all the cards and well wishes- we appreciate them!~
