Solar Eclipse… we had a lot of cloud cover during totality- we did get a glimpse

Right after the eclipse- it started to pour rain – small flood!

Steps Lloyd built to make it easier for Linda to climb the steps.

She goes in tomorrow to the neurologist- hopefully they will look at her legs and try to figure out why all the pain

and also she will be scheduled for surgery on her carotid artery.  Prayers… please & thank you!

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!
