I went to an assembly at Ava's school today because she was named the Terrific Kid for her class in October. they called each kid up and read all the nice things their teachers wrote about them. When it was Ava's turn I could see that she was sucking in her cheeks and biting them to keep herself from smiling. I wish I had gotten a picture of it. She is such a funny girl! She is definitely terrific and she tries her hardest to have perfect behavior at school. Ava is kind and helpful and she is a great listener. As much as she tried not to show it, Ava was thrilled to be the first Terrific Kid of the year!
Here she is with her bumper sticker and finally, an excuse to smile!
