A Sickly Citizen


Caleb, my 7 year old, has been sick for the last couple of days. He even missed school yesterday.

Last night his teacher called. She informed me that Caleb would be receiving an award at the school assembly today and to try really hard to have him there. It was so neat to see how much she cares about him and how well she has gotten to know him.

Oh and I wasn't supposed to tell him.

I was very hopeful until about 2am when he threw up all over himself and his bed. And then did it again an hour later.

I was still determined to get him there.

I waited until the last second to get him dressed and still had to change him because he was sick again. Poor guy!

But I was determined that nothing was going to keep us from getting him there, so I changed him and got everybody in the car. I loaded him up on medicine so that he would at least get through the assembly.

Caleb had no idea he was getting an award and he was ecstatic.

He was one of two students out of 90 that received the Good Citizenship award. It is given to students who display trustworthiness, respect, fairness, caring and responsibility.
