Final Choir concert and awards night

Tonight was the last Choir concert of the year and a small awards ceremony. Abbey received two medals, for her solos. And one very special red medal from The SA Children's Choir. The ones she's wearing are both for Outstanding achievement ... the most 1st place wins throughout the school year. The white one is from the school for her grade level and the other is from the school district for the combined JH and HS Advanced Choir. Only three red, white, and blue medals were given throughout the district. She is holding the red one that was for her being invited to join the San Antonio Children's Choir. As soon as I took this photos she took them off and shoved them in her pocket. LOL On the drive home I asked her if she was embarrassed to wear them and why she never put the red one on ... she said "Not really but you and everyone make a big deal out of it and it's like bragging" What??? Me, brag ?!?!?! hahahha YES, ME!! And it was a big deal. :-) Side note ... she was happy she got to wear her "Together We Sing" shirt for a second time ... the Principal wouldn't allow it for Spirit Fridays because she said it was teasing the other kids that didn't go. WHAT?? Seriously! I think that's where she gets the bragging thing from. Anywho, I'm off to admire fellow bloggers scrappy things.


  1. Go Abbey! It isn't bragging if it's true. Be proud of yourself.

  2. Wow! That is great news. Yeah, they are making kids so freakin sensitive these days. Way to go Abbey!
