The kids rocked Reflections this year! I'm on the committee, so I usually see a list of the winners before the assembly and have an idea of who is winning what. But this year, I only happened to see a list of the photography and literary arts winners before arriving at the school. So I was utterly surprised that all our children won an award. I was so happy for them; they were so excited! And if you can't tell from the pictures, it was crazy hair day at school, haha!
Palmer won an Award of Merit in Music for a song he composed entitled "Happy," and an Award of Merit in Photography for a picture he took, "Night at the Fair."

For sure we have talented and creative kids. However, I am even more proud of the thought, time and effort they put into their projects each year. They are pretty cool kids!
