Proud of my turkeys, er, eagles

Each six weeks, the teachers at the girls' school pick a boy and a girl to be Proud Eagle. Guess who is the mommy of two proud eagles?

When Melody's teacher announced to the class last Friday that she was Proud Eagle, she told them, "Melody is an -er and -est student. You are all kind children, but Melody is the kindest. There are many in my class who work hard,, but Melody works harder."

I thought that was such a good description of my sweetie.

Dixie didn't learn about hers until yesterday. I didn't get the verbatim description out of her that I got out of Melody, but I know that Dixie is becoming the patient, thoughtful Dixie we always knew she could be.

We get to go tonight and watch them get their awards.

So cool. I know how you feel. Our elementary selects a boy and girl from 5th grade to be students of the month and for April Caleb is being honored.
