“a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2016”


last wednesday morning both Will and i went to Lily’s school for a small awards ceremony

Lily was recognized as a terrific kid

terrific stands for thoughtful, enthusiastic, respectful, responsible, inclusive, friendly, inquisitive and capable

every month Lily’s school hands out awards to students for certain character traits

last month’s trait was integrity

as Lily walked up to get her award, the vice principal read what Lily’s teacher wrote about her and why she was chosen as a terrific kid

“Lily is a role model for her classmates. she is always doing what she is supposed to be doing, even when her teachers are not working with her or her group. she stands for what she believes in, even if her friends don’t feel the same way. she is happy and independent and is strong in her set of values! a great example to follow”

a proud parent moment for both Will and i

and for Lily herself as well

happy monday friends

here is to a good new week to follow!
