Awards for Everyone!

My long standing aversion to faux awards ceremonies where everyone gets recognized, quite often for feats such as "Poem Recognition" and perfect attendance for 9 whole weeks, is well documented. I skipped several such gatherings just this week warning my children that I was completely unwilling to attend until a time when actual awards for actual achievements would be doled out. I was probably the only parent who skipped out but I figure they can tell their therapists all about it.

All that being said, when E was this excited about his swimming "Participant" ribbon, I was ready to make an exception in my steadfast dislike of the meaningless award.
