Well, my daughter won an award recently from the University of Nebraska..GREAT!!!....In Speech, representing her school, she missed going to State Competition by 1 spot! AAAAAGHH! ...We are still EXTREMELY proud of her, even though she was very disappointed, (she's a real go-getter!).
Then a few weeks later, we received notice from a local community group, she is being awarded again for her accomplishments in Drama and Speech! WooHoo!! She already knows what college she wants to attend, and will hopefully get offers soon...I'm such a proud pappa!!
