Stressed-Out Sixth Grader

My poor daughter. She participated in an end-of-the-year piano recital on Sunday, an end-of-the-year band concert on Tuesday, and an end-of-the-year Science Fair on Thursday. She has been pushing herself to do well in school because she wants desperately to attend the end-of-the-year 6th grade camping trip, and students are not allowed to go if they have an F in any subject.

I think she can stop worrying.













The other girls conducted classy experiments like which ingredients make a better-tasting cake and will plants grow better with music playing in the background. My daughter? MOLD. But, hey! Blue Ribbon!



Dinner last night: chicken, mashed potatoes, string beans

I did a mold experiment for a science project, in the 8th grade! Looks good to me:)

Good for her. It is nice to see young people doing so well. I remember doing a science experiment on mold in the 5th grade. I still have the papers somewhere.

Great job! My kids are still young. I have so much to look forward to.

Wow, she's got a lot on her plate for a 6th grader. I remember feeling like I had a lot going on, but that didn't really start until middle school. Big congrats to her on her blue ribbon...there's nothing like a little recognition for hard work.

She looks so cute, and proud of all her hard work. She should be! Now she can enjoy her trip a LOT. ;)

The great mold experiment....ah, the good ol' days. I did that one, too! Congrats on a job well done. Things don't have to be complicated to be good.

Congratulations on the blue ribbon. You're saying mold isn't classy?
