Veronica came running off the bus several days ago and said she had something to show me. She dug around in her binder and pulled out this gem:
Holy cow. 4H PRESIDENT??? It wasn't voted on so I'm not sure how it was determined who was president. Maybe they went by grade point average, and since Veronica is a straight A student, she got it. Who knows! She held her first meeting the very next day. She was nervous. Everything she had to say was written down and I'm sure the 4H leader gave her direction. I'm super proud of my smart girl!!
My ValGal was busy the past few days. Friday night she went to the Winter Formal Dance at school with friends. We had looked at dresses months ago, and this was the first one she tried on at JC Penny. It was so sparkly and elegant and I thought it was perfect. Of course, it was gone when we went back to actually buy a dress, but I found it online somewhere else for half the price!
Thursday night Valerie began her District VII Honor Band adventure. She had rehearsal Thursday night and all day Friday. Then rehearsal again for a few hours Saturday morning, and the concert was Saturday afternoon. It's amazing how much these students accomplish in such a short time. The concert was a bit long since it was Youth, Junior High, and Senior High bands performing. They were all amazing though. Valerie loved being a part of it and has her eye set on getting the 7 year Honor Band award when she is a senior.
All the back and forth was hectic and I was glad to be through it all, or so I thought. I completely blanked on Parish Honor band. Since she made District, she's automatically in Parish. We get to do it all again in a week!! Welcome to the life of a Band Mom I suppose!!
I don't mind. I'm so proud of both my girls. It makes me happy to see them do good things.
