First of all, I missed a week – maybe even 2, in my challenge to blog once a week in 2o12. I’ll try to make that up this week by posting at least one other time.
But, on to the post. A few weeks ago we got to go up to the school to see Natalie be recognized in the Character Celebration for the month of February. At their school they have a guidance class which focuses on one character trait a month. At the end of the month each teacher is asked to nominate the student in their classroom who best exemplifies this quality and they are then recognized by the principal and their parents are invited to be there.
Natalie was nominated for the trait caring. Nothing could describe her better than this. She really is a caring soul. When her teacher is out sick she’ll ask to make a card for her, when either Anthony or I have headaches she makes us a card or even just sits and rubs our backs. On the playground at school she’s told us more than once how she’s found a friend crying and helps them find an adult to make them feel better. She definitely is concerned and cares about those around her.
We are so proud of her!
