It just gets better and better :)

Firstly, THANK YOU all so much for your comments!!! Krystal has been smiling for days and her first question to me when I got home yesterday was: 'Has anyone commented on the blog?' LOL She's loved hearing from you all... both on here and via emails and forums etc

Prize giving was this morning and I went up... it was actually really impressive with all the teachers in their robes :) The choir and the orchestra were absolutely fantastic and then it was onto the awards. They called the students up in groups of 6 and I kept waiting for Krystal's name to be called out but it didn't happen... then they said that was the end of the 'singular awards'. Next we move onto the students who has shown excellence in two subjects. I sat through waiting for Krystal's name to be called out again... I didn't realise I was so nervous and I kept thinking that Krystal was probably worried that someone had made a mistake... sometimes the other side of the hall feels like a very long way away!!!

Anyway after another 18 students names were called they said that was the end of the double awards. Next we move onto the small group of students who have shown excellence in three subjects. I was so nervous... I totally have faith in Krystal but we're talking about a really small group of students who have achieved really high standards. The third name called out was Miss Krystal's!!! I almost had a heart attack!!! She has worked so hard all year and earned herself Excellence in: Social Studies, Mathematics and Science!!! WOO HOO!!!

It feels so awesome to know that Krystal is proud of herself and that her hard work has been rewarded in such a great way. After the assembly she collected her report and she has now officially finished school for the year :) I read her report today and it's fabulous! Krystal also came first overall in graphics!!! I feel like a very lucky mum tonight :)
