Then (6th grade first day of school)
Now (8th grade promotion)
Today we attended Zach's eighth grade promotion, I hate to be one of those moms who brag excessively about my kids but I just have to brag a little. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was worrying about Zach entering the big bad middle school and just like that I blink and we're now preparing for high school. Zach has grown so much in the last three years not only physically but emotionally. Overall I think he would say the middle school experience was mostly positive. Today during promotion Zach was honored with several awards which demonstrated his involvement in middle school.
Okay, here goes the bragging:
Honor Roll for Three Years
Presidential Award for Academic Excellence
Recognition for Computers
Recognition for Spanish
Somerset Salute to Excellence
And finally he was the only student recognized for Industrial Technology-who knows maybe he'll be an engineer like his dad (he was probably most embarrassed by this award as he had to go up in front and listen to the glowing comments of his Applied Engineering teacher)
Mom of course was forbidden from going in front to take pictures of him as one never wants to be embarrassed by mom. Thank goodness for my new camera's zoom.
Both mom and dad are especially proud of you Zach and wish you all the best as you begin high school.
