This morning, at the 7th grade year-end assembly, M got two awards. The kids are grouped all year in “teams” of about 100 kids. M had the highest math score on his team for a year-long math competition, and he also got the “core values” award for his team. Which means he “exemplified the school’s core values of learning, respect, and responsibility.” Not bad for a kid who lost a couple textbooks along the way.
And this afternoon, we all went down to town hall so E and I could apply for our marriage license. She is now officially “Party A” and I’m “Party B.” Let’s hear it for a state with legalized same-sex marriage, and gender-neutral license applications!
