Abby started the new year off with a Lifeskills Award. Two children are picked from each class, every nine weeks, and are given awards for above and beyond achievements. Abby's award was for effort. Her precious teacher, Ms. Osborne, almost cried as she told me how moved she is by Abby's 150% effort each and every day! This picture is of her walking into the gym with her class. I was against the wall and she didn't know I was there. It's a surprise to the children when their name is called. Abby came in with her hands in her pockets, all big and grown, too cute.
