Then, they are called one by one to cross a bridge and receive their certificate of achievement. Here I am snapping a picture too late, so all you see is the two people sitting in front of me with Liv's arm barely even noticeable as she crosses the bridge... mother of the year!
The next part of the evening requires some background info.
A few days ago.....
Me: Lex when were you going to tell me about this honor roll award ceremony?
Lex: What are you talking about, I am not in any ceremony.
Me: I thought I saw a flyer in your folder inviting us to the award ceremony for honor roll.
Lex: I don't know what you are talking about, but I will ask a friend.
Lex: Mom, you had to receive an invitation in the mail to go to the ceremony and I didn't get one.
Me: I know I saw an invitation, look through your stuff.
Lex: I can't find anything and that would be embarrassing if we showed up and weren't invited.
Me: Okay but I am going to slap you silly if you get an award and we aren't there to see it!
Later, last night in the middle of the Girl Scout Bridging Ceremony.....
Lex: Mom, Rachel just text me and I am on the program to receive an award for honor roll... she said that if we hurry we might make it in time.
Me: Look of total indecision on my face because Nate wasn't able to make it to girl scouts and so now I was going to leave my Girl Scout alone at her ceremony while I ran Lex down the street to her school.... I said, "okay, hurry, let's go!"
So, Nate was able to get to the Girl Scout Ceremony and pick Liv up, meanwhile me and Lex get to her school about 5 minutes before they start calling the 8th grade names, hers being first alphabetically! Clearly or house is not running as a well oiled machine these days!!!! So here is a really grainy video and picture from the VERY back of the auditorium of Lex.... again, mother of the year... NOT!
Uh, she is the one on the far right!
