Makes My Monday: Bewildering Praise

Drama Girl received this note on a Civil War journal project that was returned in her history class;  "You have 2 choices.  A) Be a writer B) Be a Political Scientist.  Brilliant!!! 265/260 [points]" 

I absolutely love that the teacher framed her future in such defined terms.  Unfortunately he didn't define in class what a political scientist is, so she came home and asked us.  I believe at this point in her life, she is leaning toward option "A."

I know the power of high praise from respected teachers, and I'm grateful that this teacher framed his thoughts so enthusiastically.  To see more happy thoughts for Monday, visit Cheryl at Twinfatuation.

Drama Girl seems to be very similar to her Mama! ;)

LOVE that assessment of her efforts and talent and potential. She will ALWAYS remember that.

Her gift---and your appreciation of it---Make My Monday. Thanks for playing along, ThreeUnder!
