If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

My Star Student

Sam was chosen to be the Star Student in his class last week.  This might sound like a normal routine Kindergarten experience for most of us, but for this kid, this was the event of the year.  He has been dying to be the Star Student.  Every Monday he would come home and tell me who his teacher picked that week and how sad he was that it wasn't him.

Then on Monday he climbed into the car with a "guess what mom!"  Our conversation went something like this.
Me- So how is being the Star Student?
Sam- I think everyone in my class was pleased with how I did.
Me- What was your favorite part?
Sam- Being line leader was fun but it was hard knowing when she wanted me to stop.

Sam's teacher told me the next day that when she announced him being Star Student that he stood up and said, "I am really excited but I can't help but think of my classmates who still haven't gotten a chance to be the Star Student."

And to finish up his exciting week, he got to bring home the class alligator for the weekend.  Oh how I love that little guy and how he takes in every ounce of every experience.
