Time for a little bragging.

My daughter, who turned 10 years old this week, is receiving a literacy award from school tomorrow for a story she wrote.

I can't even describe how excited and proud I am!

They could write about anything. She chose the backdrop of a video game she likes called Trace Memories. (Some of the games she plays on her Nintendo DS have incredibly intricate and inventive backstories.)

You can bet I'll be there tomorrow flashing my camera in the front row and embarrassing her to no end.

I'm a Dad.

It's my job.

Congrats to you both. :)

Thanks, Frank! It was an auspicious ceremony (complete with grade 6 band solos...ouch). The award is firmly affixed to the wall below her dance pictures. :)
