Ogre is 17, he is finishing up his Junior year in high school. He is a teenager. Drives me crazy- and is wonderful all in the same minute.
Today his school had their awards ceremony. His school is very small- 20 kids in the class of 2011- and not many more in the class of 2012. He has gone there since he left grade school- also a very small school- a charter school where the Moose goes now- and the Goose will be next year.
I got a call on Tuesday- to tell me that the Ogre would be getting an award at the program. I was able to take the day off and go.
He is such an awesome kid! He received the Diligence Award for the Junior Class. The award is voted on by the staff/faculty of the school for a member of each class. It is given to the student who shows diligence in his work - school work and work in the community.
He also received an award for his geography class- for Most Improved.
I am so very proud of the Ogre!!!!
