Wordless Wednesday

Life is not measured
by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

Sean & I had the honor and privilege of joining the January 2011 Students of Distinction for a VIP Luncheon today. You'll notice the reason we were invited was because our own VIP was one of the students recognized.

The Students of Distinction is a Student of the Month selection made by teachers and staff. The principal shared with us that only about 10% of the students at school will ever receive this honor. Andrew was selected for sharing and modeling the School Five--the five pillars of action and character that they strive to embody as a school.

I was amazed that all the kids at the table knew the School Five and could give examples of applying to life. The School Five are:
1. Be Safe
2. Be Responsible
3. Be Respectful
4. Be Prepared
5. Be Ready to Learn

The principal encouraged them as leaders and pointed out that those who achieve the most success in life are those who follow these pillars in the workplace. The most successful person is not always the smartest, it's the one that people look up to and can identify with. She spoke of the heart of the person being the most important thing because the rest can all be taught.

We are so proud of Andrew and the recognition of his leadership and heart. We had a great lunch and enjoyed seeing our son shine.
