Thank you

Thanks all of you for the kind comments on my daughter's accomplishments. We are so proud of her.

This daughter is the very athletic and participated in three sports and will be playing softball in college. The brains and athletics are helping to pay for part of college - hurray.

A funny story. In 6th grade, the language teacher had them write letters. These letters were to be opened when the graduated. The students were to include their goals, the price of gas at that time and then when they graduated, what they thought they would be doing, etc. Also, on this paper the parents were to write a short letter with their dreams and hopes for their child. Well, my daughter brought hers home. She stated in 6th grade her goal for valedictorian, yes, she is very driven. The price of gas at the time $1.83, she thought is would go down by her senior year. Her guess - 88 cents! So funny, isn't it? I thought this was a great idea on the part of the 6th grade teacher.

Oh, Mom2fur commented about dd's speech. The valedictorian(s) do not automatically give a speech, students wanting to give the speech have to "audition" before the speech and language teachers. They write their speech and then give it, the teachers then select 2-3 speakers. My dd did not care to do this.

Design dreamer asked if it was a surprise, no we have known every semester she was ranked 1st, it is printed on their grade card. And yes, this is the daughter that does well in track, in fact, she has two state medals from Friday and Saturday. It was a busy weekend.

Thanks again for all the wonderful comments.

What have I been sewing? Purses, I will take some pictures tomorrow.


  1. I love the idea of writing a letter to yourself in 6th grade! Kudos to the 6th grade teacher. My DD is salutatorian for her class and she has to give a speech. Fortunately she is looking forward to it. I haven't heard it yet -- I want to be surprised on graduation day.

  2. Waht a beautiful idea!
