Brooke won a trophy for making the advanced team for next year. She and her friend tied for highest score with 104 out of a possible 106 points. Then she won a trophy for Most Outstanding Student for her age group. I was so surprised and excited that I about cried. I was sure her friend was going to win and when they announced Brooke's name I teared up so bad that I had to get up and go start setting up the reception to keep from bawling like a baby! Both sets of Grandparents were there to see her win it too, so that made it even more special! She also got 4 certificates.
Last night was recital and I had to set up for the reception and then I got drafted to help my friend line the girls up after each routine. Then every parent except the two of us left and we had to clean both bathrooms, clean the bleachers and mop the entire gym floor by ourselves! We got the two girls to work on the bleachers for us while we did everything else. Then today, it happened again. We got stuck serving at the reception while the other Mom's went on and ate and left us to clean up. I was on my feet from 7:30am to 4:30pm and I am worn out!
