A Mom's HaPpY HeaRT!

The car was packed and we were ready to try and beat a bad blizzard on our way to Utah for T-Day
BUT...
before we did that I got a text from Sterling's teacher and a message from Colton's that it was important for us to be at the assembly at school that morning
So we bundled up the happy babies and headed over to the school

Where Colton received the student of the month award for his class

AND STERLING.....
got the "LITTLE COYOTE" award for the entire school!!!

his teacher wrote up a little address for the principal to say and it described our sweet Sterling PERFECTLY!
It talked about how he helped those students with disabilities in his class voluntarily, how he sets high standards for himself to achieve and works at them and gets them, and how he is a quiet leader and example.
It made my heart so happy to know that my children were being recognized for their good attributes.
Sometimes the "squeaky wheel gets the oil", but sometimes it is nice to give the non-squeaky wheels the oil too!! at least I know that, even though at home they can be less then Little Coyote or Student of the Month caliber, that 'outside' they can be upstanding citizens and examples....
I can sleep a little bit better at night!

I am so happy for you!
Those moments make all the "far less than perfect" moments worth it...
