This afternoon Steve and I went to Samantha's awards program at her school. I was so proud of her. She got 4 awards and all were important. After the program I held up her 'Most Honest Girl' award and told her I felt that was the most important one. The Honor Roll is great, Scholarly Behavior is great, and Tardy Free is great, too. But without honesty those other things tend to lose their value. The Honesty award is for truthfulness: loving the truth, telling the truth, and living truthfully in word and deed. I hope she will maintain that throughout her life!
I messed up and didn't get a video of her receiving her awards. I am not very happy with myself!
