As most everyone knows, I homeschooled Damaris for 4.5 years. We put her into public school in November of last year so we could help her adjust before we relocate to Lubbock where she will also be attending public school. It's been a difficult adjustment not only for Damaris, but also for Russ & I. The rewards of how Damaris has adjusted were shown today.
I couldn't be a prouder mom! Last week, we received notice that Damaris was receiving some awards at school today. Of course, Russ & I attended.
The first award Damaris received was for the outstanding achievement in 4th grade music by a girl.
The second award Damaris received was for "A" Honor Roll.
The third award Damaris received was for outstanding achievement in reading. She was one of two to receive this award in her class.
The final award Damaris received was the most prestigious and highest award that could be received. It was for outstanding citizenship by a girl in her class.

Thanks to each of you who have prayed for and with us and journeyed with us on this new experience for us all. We are so blessed to have each of you as a part of our lives.
