Nova's Promotion Day | CoViD-19: More Delta In The UK |


Today was Nova's 8th grade promotion, so I was up early to watch her awards ceremony online. She got awards in math and band, perfect attendance, highest honor roll, and the President's Award for maintaining straight As or better throughout her three years of middle school. I'd be happy to take any credit, but especially this year, she was a self-starter and handled her online schooling pretty much entirely on her own, so she gets all the credit here. 

The actual promotion ceremony wasn't until the afternoon and it was long and hot nd the lighting was harsh for photos, but somehow our designated seats were in the only shady part of the entire school lot so I guess lucky us. 

After the promotion, nobody was allowed to hang around or take pictures, so instead we went to our friends' house in La Mesa. Nova has been in school with their daughter since kindergarten and though they're going to different high schools, there one of the few families we really connected with so we hope to keep in touch. I think it was the first time in any house that wasn't our own or my parents', so everyone being fully vaccinated makes a huge difference for sure. 

I was gonna try and blast through any email or news for today, but I think I'm just gonna skip it. I'll get around to it when I get around to it. 

Stay safe out there.
