GRIT Award!

To say that we are proud of Shyla and her accomplishments is a total understatement.  Shyla is, hands-down, one of the most-caring and genuine girls I know.  She is sensitive to others and very aware of her own and other people's feelings.  She also works hard.  Each day she tries her best and continually becomes more and more responsible and (eek!) grown-up!
This week she was awarded the annual Grit Award for the entire 1st grade!  Wowzer!  This is a huge accomplishment!  She was so delighted and proud.

I had to laugh when we had this conversation however:
SHYLA: "Do you know how I knew I had won?"
ME: "Yeah, how did you know?"
SHYLA: "Mrs. Gee said 'Shyla Forgacs!'"
