One Smart Cookie

Can I brag a little?  Today we received notice that my daughter was selected for Governor's School this summer. This is a big deal in Virginia. Her area of interest is the Humanities.  To be honest, I wanted her to apply for languages (Latin) because she's been taking it since 3rd grade. But she insisted, and voila - she got in.

Plus, today the United States Institute for Peace announced the winners of their essay contest.  Our daughter was one of 2 Honorable Mentions for the Commonwealth of Virginia (they do one 1st and 2 Hon Ments for each state).

She's a smart cookie. And beautiful. I love her.

Okay, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Well surely you should "toot your own horn" or how are we to know about your daughter and all her honors. Congratulations to her. I can see why she "makes you proud"!!

Thom - thanks. I think I would be more pleased if she had actually expended much effort. I always tell her, "just think what you would accomplish if you actually focused on things!" She laughs. Sigh.

Sweet Tea - thank you. She's a corker!

Quilly -- why are you in a hotel room? What symposium? Thank you for the kind thoughts!
