I'm so very proud

The Short Kid came home with an award certificate from school the other day. The boys have accumulated reams of these over the years, but this was a first:

Excellence in…what?


He definitely gets that from me. (The fact it took months from the time it was dated to the time I got it…unfortunately he gets that from me, as well.)

    *giggle* Cool!

    How do you get an excellence in lunch certificate? Behaving well at lunch? Using good manners while eating lunch? Bringing a gourmet lunch?

    It is something I would like to know.

    It’s actually a behavorial award, though it would be funnier if it were for eating.

    He lines up nicely, always says “May I please have…” and “thank you” and does his recyclables and stuff like that.

    If he can score an Excellence in Recess, we’ll have gotten a certificate for every possible school activity. :lol: (Outside of sports)
