My girl rocks!

Just got a letter in the mail today that M was one of the Region 9 winners for her reflection entry. Her entry will now be sent on to another level for judging. I am so proud of her. What writer wouldn't be proud when their child starts winning awards for her writing. Granted she had a pretty cool story with my mom's life. Maybe I should write a book about growing up in East Germany. Then maybe I can be as cool as my girl. Well, at least somewhat as cool, I will never have that hair! It is down to her waist now and just so beautiful. I could go on for hours gushing about her. How well she is doing at her new school, her teacher even called D and told him what a joy she is to have in class. Or about how responsible she is becoming. Her room has been spotless from the moment we finished unpacking it. Wish I could say that for the rest my room! Or maybe how hard she tries, her back has been giving her a lot of pain lately and so we signed her up for YOGA and she is doing it so well. She practices and tries to stretch a little further with each pose, even though she has never been known as flexible. She is one grerat girl. I love you M and I am so proud of you!
