last week we received an invitation to flag ceremony with the notice that Anna was receiving an award. when Anna woke up feeling lousy, we convinced her to go to flag and see how she felt afterward, after all, she was receiving an award!
Anna was awarded with the Citizenship award for her class, for the entire year! we were so proud, especially since she also received this award in Kindergarten. it is so nice to know that the sweet, obedient and helpful girl we see at home, is making the same impression at school.
after the ceremony, it was clear she was still feeling crummy, so we took her home to rest. she spent the ENTIRE last week of school in bed with a terrible virus, including an icky and itchy rash! she was so sad to miss all the fun of the last week of school. but i was happy she at least got this moment.
Dad and I are so proud of you and all you do to try your best at home and at school. you are a darling daughter, and a great example for your younger brother and sisters. thank you for all that you do to make our lives so happy.
we love you so much,
