Ten Awards!

I do feel bad that Mica had an award ceremony, and neither Travis or I could go. Travis' work has had one less employee because he was away in the Philippines for a month. It's a really busy time for me with finals coming up! I can't just skip my own class.

His school takes 20 minutes to get to from our house, which means a good 30 minutes from our work(s).

I explained that he's had many other events that we have gone to, and that we may have to skip some of Isaak's events in the future as well.

It drives me nuts that schools put events right smack in the middle of the day. I know teachers don't want to stay later, but it's hard to leave work at times.

As it turned out Mica got THE MOST AWARDS in the entire sixth grade class! That made me feel even more guilty about not being able to go.

He got not 1, but 10 awards!
  1. Outstanding achievement in computer applications 
  2. Student of the week 
  3. Outstanding achievement in music (band) 
  4. Metropolitan science and engineering fair participant 
  5. Science academic excellence 
  6. Geography bee contestant 
  7. Renaissance silver 8 social studies academic excellence 
  8. Mathematics 
  9. Academic excellence 
  10. Science fair excellence 
My goofy response to not being able to go was, “Well you just have to stop winning so many things Mica.” He knows I’m kidding.

What a bummer you both missed it :( It really is hard for parents to cut work in the middle of the day though. My mom feels bad that she can't get to all of her grandkid's award ceremonies (the two that she is raising) so when she can't attend, she calls me to have me go so at least one person from our family is cheering them on.

Congrats on all of those awards Mica! I am sure he's going places. What a wonderful accomplishment this school year!

That's awesome that he won so many awards! I work an hour away from home and I didn't get to go to even ONE event his year at my son's school. Talk about mom guilt.

Mica is doing a great job indeed and congratulations! I know how it feels when we cannot come to school on our kids' special events, but just like you, will try to do our best to come.
