This is my sister, Kristi, with her son Travis on his end of school trip last year to Stone Mountain, Georgia. Today was her first day of work (with children there) as the new Media Specialist at Pleasant Grove Elementary School in Heflin, Alabama. That is the same school that we all went to and that Travis has always gone too also.
I am so proud of Kristi. Most people would have given up on school. She had Travis very young and worked and went to school. Then Mallory came along and she still went to school and held a job, sometimes two. And - still made sure that the kids got to be in sports and gymnastics and Tae Kwon Do. She has been pretty busy the past few years.
And today is a special day for her little girl Mallory also. It is her first day of Pre-K! She will be at the same school too!
Here is a little picture of Miss Mallory too.
Congrats to both of them!
** And just for us "older" people, a Media Specialist is kinda like a Librarian only cooler. ;0
