So Proud

It is amazing to me how quickly our kids grow up.  My first born is almost 10 and I am stunned every time I look at her and see the amazing, mature young lady she is becoming.  4th grade has been a big step up for her.  Not only does the school work become harder (double digit multiplication & division ya'll!!), but she is presented with lots more opportunities at school as well.  She was elected a Student Council Rep for her class which gives her lots of leadership opportunities in the school and decided to try out for a dancing part in the Holiday Choir.  She carries this enormous binder brimming with school work to & from school everyday and never complains at how full her calendar is with school responsibilities, Girl Scouts, Soccer, and homework.  And she does a much better job than I do remembering her schedule!!

Ok, so time for a little bragging - how can I not as her momma???

This past month she won the Texas Trailblazing award for her school:
She & her Girl Scout troop helped organize a Service Unit project collecting canned goods for the local food pantry:
They collected over 4000 cans!
She ran in her school 2K, raising money for the Williamson County Animal Shelter.
And played her heart out in soccer this fall:
At one game, she was picked to kick a penalty kick.
I was so nervous for her......
But she remained focus and determined.
Just shy of the goal..... bummer.
But she's still smiling.  They won the game after all.

That's my girl.  Smart, Caring, Talented, Responsible, Friendly, Adorable.  This momma's love overflows for her.  I am in awe of the young lady she is turning into and can't wait to see the woman God creates. But there's many more years of homework, soccer, and fun to come!!! (thank goodness!!)

This is such a sweet post and really brings out her qualities. I'm sure it's because she has two wonderfully supportive parents cheering her on and encouraging her along the way.
