It's a miracle I tell ya!

The big girl has struggled with 6th grade math all year long. The last two six weeks she has had a 'C' which she has never made before!!! So, as you can imagine, even after much tutoring, we were anxiously awaiting her TAKS results.
She passed!!! But, not only did she pass, she got commended! As she said, "today is my happy day"... she thought that was reason for a "Happy Meal", I happily drove her straight to McDonald's.
The Little girl got an award for 'A' honor roll, exceeding her Accelerated Reading goal, and Great Citizenship today. We however missed the memo on dressing up for this event. She proudly accepted her awards in rolled up sweat pants and an "I know fashion" tee shirt and it didn't faze her in the least. The big one would have had a stroke!!!
Thank you God for keeping Summer School off of our schedule and for one easy going child!

Good for you celebrating your girls accomplishments. Success on taks is well worth the trip to McDonalds.

We always celebrate the successful completion of taks at our house too.

I love that you rewarded her for a job well done. She must feel so loved by her momma! And yay for no summer school!
