Just have to blog this as I'm very proud. Alice my daughter has achieved a end of term Merit Badge, mainly for her written work, especially imaginative stories. Alice is 7 so still early in the school process. Last year she was getting lots of recognition just as her younger brother has done this year. But for Alice this year had not seen the usual slew of awards, simply because this age group they don't hand them out like candy. Seeing her brother get various awards has really miffed her as she loves recognition and the attention that comes with it. Not only that but we always reward them with treats and such as well. Alice has continued to work hard and continued to achieve levels well above the average. Cath has a lot to do with this as she spends so much time with both Alice and Joseph each evening with reading and spelling etc.
So Alice was rewarded with a Merit Badge, a Zoobal a cuddly donkey and a choice for a special tea. I',m glad she choose the meatballs yum yum.
Oh Joseph got a couple of Playmobil skateboard dudes as we always treat both if one does well. I am now trying to not think about how much lead I could have bought.
