Certificate of excellence

All the hard work paid off. Elias confessed to me that he was beyond nervous, his legs were shaking but he did good. The business panel asked him a few questions and he even managed to answer them. Afterwards they were rewarded with this certificate of excellence and they had their photo taken. Well done Elias! I am so proud of you!
I think this is exactly what Elias needed, a gentle push in the right direction, some encouragement for his  hard work. School is hard, sometimes he is struggling and I try to convince him that you can only do your best. His teacher has also giving him hints that he needs to put more focus and effort into his work, go that extra mile instead of finishing off as soon as possible so he can play football with the boys (well, he is only 10 years old, so who can blame him?).
