That Girl

Just when I think I can't be more proud of one of my kids, something happens that just takes my breath away.

Wasabi Girl is amazing.  She is conscientious, diligent, hard-working, and dedicated - in everything she does.  I have seen the results in her championship gymnastics medals.  I have heard her play the saxophone and seen her band win the highest possible honors.  I see her perfect grades.  I am so proud of all of her accomplishments.

But this morning, as I opened my email, I wasn't prepared for what I saw.  A note from her math teacher.  She is being honored by the local high school as one of the top two 8th grade math students.  I had no idea!  I am thrilled beyond words.

Congratulations Wasabi Girl!  Maybe next time we're at that gift shop I'll let you get ONE of the goofy pink stuffed animals.

It isn't just the talent - it is the persistence and hard work that her accomplishments represent that wows me.
