Victory and (Greek) Tragedy

This past Friday morning, we found ourselves sitting in the auditorium at Sierra Madre Elementary watching a very enthusiastic and coordinated group of fourth grades perform a brief history of the Greek Culture. We do not have any children in fourth grade, in case you are wondering. Our son is in kindergarten.

This was a very special assembly, though, because after the Greek dancing and recitations from Sophocles, there was a Spotlight Award ceremony for students from each class. We knew that Dillan would be getting one, but it was a surprise for him. When he was called on stage, he was excited and so happy- and so were we. Simple pleasures….We also agreed that the show was fun and well-organized- good to know, as I am sure we will have the pleasure of attending at least one of these a year for the foreseeable future.

I love this picture for so many reasons. Obviously Dillan is happy, but check out the kid on the right- he’s ecstatic! And try to read the characteristics of the award-winners: “always doing her best, and for her creative, colorful artwork!”  Gosh, I wish there were these things for grown-ups sometimes….

    So cute!!! I was wondering what was up with all the cars on the street, glad to know it was all for the Big Guy, or at least partly, yay!

    Congrats to Dillan! And to the parents… that is wonderful to be rewarded like that. Yes, I would like to be encouraged with awards like that throughout the year… what a great pick-me-up!

    We are so proud of Dilly! Give him a big hug and kiss. It is so great to see him following his parents footsteps in terms of his creativity, intelligence, and darn good personality. Is is times like these we wish we lived closer to you.
