Educational Day

 Today I got to go help judge a science fair for work again. Fun fun! 

Don't I look official?

Nothing too exciting this year. The ones that won were ones that actually followed all the directions and included all the information correctly!

I worked over eight hours today. That means someone else should be cleaning for me right?

After work I ran to Costco to get a new nose piece pad thing for my glasses. Wore them all day with just one. Couldn't really tell til the end of the day when it started bugging me. They just snapped a new one in for me, no charge! I picked up some shrimp with cocktail sauce for me and some popcorn chicken for everyone else for dinner.

I was home for about an hour then we went to Jessica's awards ceremony for school. Last one until graduation. This was for the IB program. Some of these kids are so smart I couldn't even understand what they were going to go to college for.

Here she is getting her awards & sash to wear to graduation. It was nice that they called the kids up, gave them there stuff and read off what they were proud of, what IB tests they were taking, what college they are going to and what their major is going to be.

It's like a warm up for graduation. Pretty sure I am going to have to remember to take tissues.

I remember being her age. No idea what I was going to do with my life, going to school the bare minimum and working. By this point in my senior year I had moved out of my parents house into my own apartment and commuting to school. It was kind of surreal listening to these super smart kids all with a big plan on what they are going to do with their lives. I hope that at least half of them make it to their goals. Life tends to not always go as we plan.

I remember those days too.
So much to look forward too and it was all so exciting.
I'm on the opposite spectrum now....not as exciting. :-)

How proud you must be.
