Testing... 1... 2...

It's that time of year again!  State standardized testing time!  The kids school always has a big ceremony to celebrate last year's test results.  It's a great motivator for the kids and gives them all something to look forward to the following year.

This year they had to break up the days for the ceremonies.  Last year's 4th grade did so well that practically every student received an award!  My son received a Proficient in both Reading and Math and a Distinguished in Science.

My daughter received a Proficient in Reading for last year's 3rd grade testing!  She was so upset that she was crying because she thought she should have received an award for Math too, but alas she didn't do so well in that subject.  I tried to reassure her that no matter what, I am and always will be proud of her.  What really gave me tear though... was Kaia's little bestie, Shelby.

This sweet little girl stood by Kaia side while she cried, put her arm on Kaia's shoulder and told her that everything would be alright.  That she should be proud of getting her award in Reading and gave her a good squeeze.  Everyone needs a friend like that!
