2020 was a disaster for a lot of us due to the COVID19 pandemic. Schools were closed and activities were canceled. The kids really missed a lot of fun opportunities including homecoming and other big school events. My daughter and some of her close friends held a private HOCO at one of the parents' home, thanks to the Mehilis family for hosting it.
They also had dinner dates with their friends at Ditka's prior to this gathering.
Anthony is one of her closest friends and he asked her again this year to be his prom date. I love seeing this kids grow up together. My daughter started at St. Joseph School on her kindergarten days while most of these kids started during the pre-school days.
Madonna High School don't have a big crowd and that's a huge blessing to me. My daughter is super introvert so she's only close to few people. I'm even surprised that she's the President of the class because she's not very outgoing. I think its the challenge that she set to herself, to overcome the awkwardness in dealing with people.
She's very intelligent and hold herself accountable when it comes to maintaining her high grades. She doesn't settle for mediocre result when it comes to academics. Even when her grades are over a hundred, she still does the extra credit works that the teacher offers as a backup if her grade goes down (which seldom happens). She works really hard to attain the best grades she could possibly get. She sets a very good example to her brother, I just wish he would put much effort as her but they are two different people so I can't really compare.
I got to take some pictures when we dropped her off at the Mehilis residence. They were kind enough to welcome the parents.
