Tonight was my son's last Junior High choir concert. All of the kids did an awesome job. During the concert, the teacher recognized the eight student who were selected to be part of the all-state honor choir last winter. Austin was one of them. I was so proud watching him get his certificate of recognitions Later, the teacher gave out "Spirit of Choir" awards to four ninth grade choir members - 2 boys and 2 girls. The "Spirit of Choir" award is given to the kids who are always on time, support other choir members, and have showed improvement over the past two or three years.
Guess what? Austin received one. He was given a certificate and a music medallion thing.
I am a proud mama. I couldn't have asked for a better kid. Hopefully, high school doesn't damage him.
