A proud Grandmother

I've never made a secret of how proud I am of my three grandchildren and the exceptional way they are being raised.  All three of them, Kevin, Jake, and Andrew, excel in school and are active in wholesome activities outside of school.

Yesterday I received an e-mail from my daughter-in-law, Jen, their mom.  Jake's school had end of the school year awards.  Jake walked away with:

  • Outstanding Achievement for Math (top 10% in his grade level)
  • Excellence in Health and Physicial Education
  • Distinguished Honors Award (maintained all A's in all subjects for the year)
  • Mariner of the Year: Exceptional effort, attitude, teamwork and achievement  (This one is a BIG deal!)

Kevin's award ceremony is today so I expect another e-mail on his achievements!  Andrew's school isn't having an awards ceremony this year.

Jake is also a member of an Olympic Development Team in soccer.  He plays goalie, just as his dad did in his younger days and into college.  The team travels all over competing in games and tournaments.
