Last day of school

And, it was a green day! So he had a totally green week, and a nearly green month. Not bad, not bad at all.

In addition, today was the awards ceremony for the kindergarten and first grade classes. Isaiah got the award for being the most cheerful in his class. LOL, when she said the award title, and his name, Isaiah proudly held up the certificate for all to see and said, "I'm the most cheerful!" The crowd was delighted. He was the only one to verbally show such glee at his award. I'm sure that some of the teachers really struggled to find something that each child could receive a certificate for.

What was really touching were the children who were obviously physically and mentally challenged. One little girl got a certificate for beginning to walk with her walker or with staff assistance. As I think about the challenges that Isaiah has faced, and the milestones he's accomplished, it really makes me very thankful that learning to take unaided steps at age five is not one of them.

Puts a whole new perspective on things.

He's going to "day camp" at the Y. Yesterday was his first day and he had a good time. Got to swim, didn't retaliate when another child hit him, and had a good day.
