What Makes Your Mom So Great?


“My mom inspires me every day to be a better person. Whether we are laughing together in the car, spending time with friends and family, or working together on a random project, my mom exemplifies the kind of person that I strive to be. She is thoughtful, positive, compassionate, and hard working. She makes me and everyone around her happier, and I am so lucky to have her.”  Matthew Stock, Greenhill senior and son of Karen Stock

“She’s really good about driving me and my two brothers to school every morning. All of us play sports, too, and she’s always able to take us to practice, watch all of our baseball, football, basketball, and soccer games, and still make us really good dinners. Thank you for all your support mom. We couldn’t be on time to anything without you.”  Austin Russell, ESD sixth-grader and son of Angie Russell

“She’s the best mom because she cheers louder than anyone else’s mom at my baseball games.” — Adam Russell, ESD fourth-grader and son of Angie Russell

“She always tell me she loves me a lot and I want to tell her ‘thank you’ for that.” — Andrew Russell, ESD kindergartner and son of Angie Russell

“I love my mom because she always puts others before herself. She is the most selfless person I know. She would sacrifice everything to make sure my sister and I are happy and successful. Her dedication to her job as a mother is very strong. She’s my voice of reason when I choose to be impulsive. I’ve learned how to be a great woman through my mother. I couldn’t have been blessed with a better mom who taught me all I know about loving.” — Lauren Henry, W.T. White senior and daughter of Charlotte Henry

“My mom always says, ‘What you bring to the picnic affects everybody.’ She means bring a positive attitude, and I agree with her. … I love my mom’s home-cooked meals. She does them every night. When she’s gone, it’s only PB&J.” — Emma Vandercook, Shelton fifth-grader and  daughter of Linda Vandercook
