Morgan receives Coach's Award!

On April 30, 2010, I got a very special email from Molly that read:

"Morgan Anderson Croft, was awarded the one and only "Coaches Award" tonight for her rock climbing. Coach Emily has 5 different teams. Everyone got an award (most spirited, most focused, most improved, etc.) but only one got the Coach's Award "the award that is the combination of all the awards rolled up into one".

In addition to getting a certificate, Morgan received the most special tribute from Emily (in front of 50 or so people) where Emily talked about Morgan's leadership, how she helps and mentors the new kids, how hard she works, her strong passion and focus, how she is always working to get better, etc, etc.

Emily went on to say "Morgan is just on fire. She is the kind of kid that inspires me to be a better coach. I hope my daughter (who will be one in the fall) will grow up to be just like Morgan". I can't think of a better compliment than that."
I received a call from Molly and Morgan, telling the news, while having dinner with Kate in New York. Their joy was contagious as Kate and I talked afterwards of Morgan's accomplishments...Molly was right when she said, "You all would have been beaming as you probably are now."

I gotta tell ya, I love this family! Thanks for sharing such wonderful news, you two.
