I got so sick this week! Grrrr. I’m still tired, but feeling much better. Wednesday, Davis won 1st place in the Raingutter Regatta at Scouts. This is his second year to participate and 2nd time to win 1st place.
So much for the “Good Sport” talk we had before the race. 😉 Needless to say he’s so excited about getting another trophy.
2 weeks ago we got notification, in the school newsletter, that Davis won 1st place in a Holiday Card competition at school and will be representing our Region. I still haven’t received any information, so that’s all I know. We’re very proud of him and it’s doing wonders for his self-concept.
My dilemma now is what to do with the very competitive but less driven son? He most certainly has won the award for ‘Most Red Days’ in a row; as he continues to bring home discipline notes almost daily.
I need to think about it a little more, but I think I just might order him a trophy myself. He is the most helpful male in my home and so loving. He’ll never win a trophy for those characteristics and they mean the world to me.
The reason this is an issue is because Davis has already won TWO 1st place ribbons for art work. Dylan is beginning to feel inferior.
