This evening, my family attended an academic awards banquet in honor of my daughter's achievement on last year's grade level assessments. This is the event for which we purchased our color-coordinated outfits. I'm happy to report we were not too overdressed! There were some families in jeans and t-shirts, but most were dressed similarly to our family. The school district provided us with a nice dinner, community members spoke to the crowd, and my daughter was presented with a certificate, medal, and t-shirt declaring her success. It was so nice to come together with so many people to celebrate. I do wish we would have more celebratory events with our community. I don't think I'll make the mistake of wearing high heels to those events, but I'll happily attend none the less, and my family will indeed be color coordinated.
