super citizen is an award given to a student or two from every class, each month. they have a big assembly, that the whole school is there for, and it's sort of a party. velzy was chosen last month because she was "the best she could be in all things" or something like that. she was pretty stoked.
(fuzzy picture but i like it too much not to post it)
although at times she can drive me crazy, velzy is a sweetheart. she is a great student, has very nice hand writing (especially for a lefty), and loves school and her teachers. yesterday she really wanted to push the stroller and i asked why, to which she responded "i just really want to help you. you do so much for me all the time i want to help you." oh. ok. she talks like a big person lately, using words that are descriptive and often says things better than i would. the girl is fast. we have been having races- she is pretty quick and really good at getting in your way so you have to slow down. i am sure the day is not too far off when she really can beat me. just like i am sure she will be taller than me next year. she loves to catch bugs and be outside with her friends. she can be a tad emotional and has a new little attitude that comes with eye rolls. not awesome. but we are working on that.
