So the dreaded science project was turned in and displayed with all other classmates at the Science Fair our school hosts each February. I was an excellent ribbon on my daughter's board, and didn't really think much else about it. I'd say nearly 2/3 had this ribbon or the superior on it. Overall, I think she got a "B" or "B-" on the project.
It was one of those moments where you are happy and proud as a parent, but are simultaneously thinking "Oh crap! Another commitment to add . . . and for something that really was not EARNED." Nonetheless, I congratulated my daughter, and we are off to regional science fair in a couple of weeks.
