Here We Go Again...
Oh yeah...I am dead serious. In a completely different contest Miss Molly has done it again. In the San Antonio area, all of the 7th Graders were given a math packet about a month or so to finish. It was filled with a ton of problems to get them thinking. Unfortunately, Molly is some sort of math Rain Man and finished her packet right away. The rest of the time when her classmates struggled to finish the packet she helped her classmates learn how to find the answers. On the due date the packets were to be gathered and graded. For the school who had the highest scores a surprise was in store. The school with the highest score would then gather the students who had attained perfect scores together to celebrate in a way they never expected.
Today she came home to share the news:
"Mom! The principal came onto the loudspeaker and told us if she read our name we were to go to the cafeteria immediately. We didn't know what was going on, but she said my name...so I went. And guess what?!?! Inside the cafeteria was Manu Gnobli of the San Antonio Spurs."
He spent some time with the winners and told them a bit about them a bit about himself and then quizzed them with some fun problems. He took the time to sign autographs for each of the kids and give them each 4 tickets to a Spurs game. Afterwards, we all got together and got out picture taken with him.
"Dude...he's tall" were her parting words.
She also explained that we wouldn't be going to the game since it was on Sunday. She'd already made up her mind.
She's on lucky girl.
And I'm one lucky Mom.
