Another smarty party today at the middle school.  This will be the sixth consecutive year that I’ve attended this thing where they recognize all the kids with a 4.0 grade average.  This pretty much makes up for the total lack of recognition of us smart kids when I was in those grades.  Finally we seem to have arrived at a point where they recognize something besides athletics.  Now they also do music, academics, and art – at least at our local schools.

So Erin is doing pretty well.
