As parents we are incredibly proud of both of our gorgeous children and their individual achievements, they have both worked incredibly hard towards their individual goals and have just blitzed it; school can be hard socially and academically so for both of them to bring home reports that show that they have come forward in leaps and bounds have made us dead chuffed as parents. For us schooling and education is really important, learning to deal with different social characters prepares our children for life lessons on how to deal with the insecure people like bullies etc. Academically I feel the art of writing and even hand writing is quickly becoming a lost art, simple things like sending a text, writing an email, comment or status updates with the correct spelling/grammar is drifting off into oblivion. Personally I cringe at abbreviated text and it’s not hard to learn the difference between where, were, we’re, their, there, they’re, your, you’re… you know what I mean? Schooling is important; if you can write a cover letter and resumé with correct spelling and grammar you’re one step in front of the kid who writes ‘thanx 4 ur T cul8tr’ I wish I had paid more attention in English and literature I’ve grown to love it and I’m drifting into my 40′s, and still learning, it’s never too late. I’m forcing this onto my children YES! forcing. It’s damn important.
Last night we ventured down to my daughters school to watch her celebrate her graduation from primary school. What an absolute treat to see her in her school environment with her teachers and best friends, she has become so independent and has grown into a wonderfully caring, talented, creative individual with special mentions made throughout the night about her individual dress sense and creative flair. She won the award for ‘Performing Arts Excellence’ they handed her a trophy and a stream of cheers erupted from the stand behind us as a tear rolled down my proud-as-punch cheek. Five minutes later she won another trophy for ‘public speaking’ a speech she wrote on being an individual and staying true to yourself! we were told several times that night we should be very proud of our daughter! my god are we ever! Well done babes you’ve been blessed with many talents just take your pick. x
…and the award goes to!
achievements in hand
and us when nobody is looking.
Congratulations Lil E xx
