We're so proud of our boy and his academic achievements, but even more so of his humility in accepting the awards and praise. The irony of his humility making my chest swell with pride is not lost on me...
Here are his awards for most accomplished reader, writer and public speaker, highest math scores, highest academic scores overall, his metal for being on the Principal's List (all "A" grades) for the entire year and his Gold Certificate from the President's Education Awards Program for Outstanding Academic Excellence. This is the second year in a row he has been all A's and highest scores.
Every time my elbow bends my mouth flies open.
