I went to The B Man’s 1st grade, end-of-year program this morning.
And cried while we all said The Pledge. It always gets me.
Memories of my own time in elementary school plus all those little voices saying those words while placing their small hands over their hearts….
Yeah, you try not to cry. 😉
Anyway, he was recognized for having Perfect Attendance (him and only 4 other children in the entire 1st grade!) and stood in the front row singing all the songs they prepared.
Then I went to his class to see his memory book and thank his AWESOME teacher and she bragged on him like crazy. And I almost cried again.
Anyway, he’s soaring onto 2nd grade, only 3 days of school left. I’m so proud of my big boy and his reading and math skills. My “biggest” is a shining star and I’m so very proud of him, especially today…
