We got the final numbers for Reflections today. The kids always wait anxiously to hear what they have won (or not won as the case may be). The elementary-aged kids are in a much stiffer competition than the older ones.
I'll give you the run down in a minute. That's not actually what this post is about...
So Teach made a gratitude countdown chain for Thanksgiving and she wanted to hang it on a hook in the kitchen. I know this is weird, but we have been hanging the Reflections medals on the hooks (and any other medals the kids get). Well, Princess said we were prideful so naturally I started taking them all down. That's about when we realized how many medals we have accumulated over the last couple of years.
Teach dared Princess to do the Michael Phelps pose, you know, the one with all the medals. So she put them on and did a couple of pictures for you. It's kind of ridiculous, really. Most of them are Reflections medals, but some are from baseball, FCCLA, DYW, stuff like that.
Now what in the world are we going to do with them?
