we usually get a note from the teacher if we need to attend an assembly at malia's school. i don't know if her teacher forgot or if malia lost the note. but i found out that malia received an award today for getting on the honor roll again! it's a good thing roel works there, so at least he was able to be there for her. i knew she would be disappointed that i wasn't there. i was too. so when she got home, i had her favorites waiting for her. mac & cheese and a flour-less chocolate cake.
