My little girl

Beth and MikeyI can not say enough how proud I am of Beth. Beth had a potentialy tough transition moving from a private school to public school. She was moving into the 7th grade which is the middle grade in the school at an age when developing new friendships is not always easy. And yet she has made friends with a great group of girls and has had an outstanding year so far. We got Beth's report card and she got straight A's and made the high honor roll. Last night we found out that (based on the recommendations of her teachers) Beth has been invited to a special conference at the State University of NY at Stony Brook called "Today's Girls, Tomorrow's Leaders". Only eight girls in the 7th grade were invited to attend. Way to go Beth!!!

The picture shows Mikey asleep on his sister. This shows what a great sister/brother relationship they have and what a good big sister Beth is to Mikey.

That is terrific, Beth! My family moved about every 4 years when I was a kid, I know how hard those "transitions" can be. Fantastic report card, too.I hope the event is a great time.
