My oldest is totally hyped up about her awesome filled day. She found out this morning that she is one of nine state finalists for Texas National History Day. She wrote a research paper on “Religious Freedom in Public Schools”. She will be interviewed by judges on May 3rd. We also found out that she is the first student from our district who has ever made finalist in the Paper category, so that in itself is a great honor. Later in the day, she found out she was cast as the sheriff in the school play of “The Very Unmerry Adventures of Robin Hood”. When we got home she had a letter in the mail from a publishing company stating she is a semifinalist in a poetry contest that she entered and her poem may qualify to be published.
Despite how public education frustrates me at times, obviously someone somewhere is doing something right with her.
