Cliff and I can't express in words how proud of Lidia and Sawyer we are! They are not only ridiculously smart, but they are beautiful inside and out. I'm so glad I get to be their grandmama, endearingly called LaLa.
Lidia and Sawyer had their awards program at school today.
Lidia received a certificate for "A" Honor Roll.
Sawyer received the "A" Honor Roll for the year award as well as a ribbon recognizing him for being one of the top five students in third grade.
(That's him on the right.)
After the program, I was hugging on Sawyer as we walked to the car and I was telling him how proud we were of his hard work. I told him that he got his smarts from me. He replied, "Really?" Then I told him that he got some of it from Papi and that his mama was a little bit smart, too.
The rest of the conversation went as follows:
Sawyer said: I knew Papi was smart, but I didn't know you were.
Laurie said: Why not?
Sawyer said: You never told me.
Laurie said: Well, I graduated high school in the top five, too. And Papi graduated as Valedictorian of his class. I, also, graduated at the top of my class in college.
He seemed pleasantly amused and surprised.
Laurie said: How do you know that Papi is smart?
Sawyer said: Because when we were working on the boat, Papi started using numbers that I never heard of before. He was using Algebra.
LOL!!!! He cracks me up!
