1st Grade Awards

Today was McKayla's 1st Grade Awards day at school.

They started out with all 4 classrooms parading around the gym showing placards with different accomplishments. This one was McKayla's and when I picked on her saying that there was no way she could count 120 and beyond, she proceeded to prove me wrong LOL.

They then all sat down and waited until their names were called to walk up to get their awards.

McKayla ended up with 3 awards:

All A's in 1st Grade (the whole year...I think her "lowest" grade was a 98), 

Superior excellence in Music,

and superior particpation in 1st Grade,

After awards, we went to her classroom for pictures with friends and her teacher (excuse the creepy, blurred out faces);

and of course a pic with Grandpa (she wanted a picture with us too but it was so hectic, it never happened :-( )

Parents could sign out their children if they wanted to after the awards and while McKayla was telling her teacher (Mrs. T.) bye, Mrs. T asked McKayla what she was supposed to do with McKayla leaving and how was she supposed to know what she was supposed to do next if McKayla wasn't there to tell her. Apparently McKayla is quite the "helper" in her classroom. ROFL

After pictures and hugs, we took Daddy home to sleep and for Grandpa to get his truck and follow him to a house he's buying to measure the property lines (soooooooo excited to have my Dad living closer to me!).

Once we were done helping Grandpa and he headed to work, it was time for girls day out!

We headed to Cracker Barrel for lunch:

Can't take a "good" pic without taking a "goofy" pic too: LOL

And shopping to celebrate her good awards. She made me take her to Target and 2 Wal*Marts to find Shoppies (dolls that go with Shopkins if anyone cares to know LOL) and she succeeded in finding 2 she wanted in the last Wal*Mart.

We had a great afternoon and I'm soooo very proud of this girl and her academic achievements and that she enjoys school so much, I just hope her love of school continues throughout her school "career".

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK.
