They made it!!!
Christine and her Mock Trial teammates are going to compete their final round in the county's courthouse tonight! They have worked so hard to prepare themselves for the competition. I am so proud of them!
Christine is the prosecution pretrial attorney of her team this year and she has worked many long hours on getting her statement and argument down that it was just amazing for me to watch how her brain works. You go Christine!
I so wish to be able to go with Robert to watch the Final but it is hard as it won't end until way after Peter's bed time. Oh well... I guess I will just have to wait for the video.
I am so blessed to have a daughter. In my case, a very sweet and sensible one. I have always dreaded the teen years but Christine has shown me a rare, precious joy of being a mother of a teenage girl. Her understanding of life and her compassion toward others are beyond her age.
Thank you for being my daughter, my dearest. I love you.
