My daughter gets a lot of recognition. She’s kind. She’s artistic. She’s sporty. She’s smart. She’s sweet.

But at her 5th grade promotion ceremony, she did not get recognized for having perfect attendance.

An award for perfect attendance?

Yeah, no.

We’re not believers in perfect attendance in our home.

We believe that when you’re sick, you stay home and get better. When there’s perfect snow at the mountain, you take the day off to go skiing. When you visit your grandmother, you spend a few extra days in San Francisco to sightsee.

Sometimes, you simply need a day off to watch Cinderella and snuggle with your dog and eat grilled cheese.

I guess you’d say we’re believers in L-I-V-I-N.

Because that’s what life is all about.

Goodbye elementary school…hello middle school!

Oh yeah! That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout 🙂 No perfect attendance here either. An award for spending time together and making memories? We need one of those! 😉

High five! I think those awards are self-issued. 🙂
