Yep- you heard me right!!!
Along with the BUG award (which is Bringing Up a Grade without any others slipping), perfect attendance, and the PAW award (for showing excellent citizenship)!
Now, I was really nervous at the beginning of 4th grade, Kensie had just been diagnosed with ADD with a slight lean toward ADHD due to focus. She had C’s & D’s all through third grade. To be quite frank, I was on pins and needles that she would fail 3rd grade. Here’s my post after her diagnosis…http://citygirlonhicksfarm.com/2013/08/03/living-as-an-adult-diagnosed-with-adhd-my-9-year-daughter-just-being-diagnosed-with-add/
Then last week, I was reading my dear friend, Angela’s post on ADD/ADHD & people’s judgement on it… here’s the link to that post http://writermomblog.com/ten-things-say-parent-adhd-child/
People without this brilliant tweek (yep- I just called ADD/ADHD brilliant, frankly, it is. It’s how YOU as a person handle ANY situation given to you that creates the outcome.) don’t quite understand how our brains work & that’s okay for the adults, but, kids don’t understand why someone is screaming at them when they are trying to focus and get what they need to get it done. Patience is a GREAT virtue with ADD/ADHD, my friends… anyways…
This lady, shown below (She’s probably going to fuss) is Mrs. Deno. She’s is MacKensie’s 4th grade teacher & just when I thought my child may struggle through school, Mrs. Deno has TAUGHT MacKensie that she can SHINE!!!! Thank you Mrs. Deno for all of YOUR hard work with not only the love, attention, hard work you give to my child but all the children!!!
& Lastly I can’t not post a few photos of K & her BFF!!!
Until next time!
