1st Grade Awards

I have blogged a couple of times about how GREAT Emma's 1st grade year has been. It is 100% because of her amazing teacher Mrs. Stevenson. Emma and I thought and thought about what we could give her for the end of the year to let her know just how special she was. Finally it hit us. Mrs. Stevenson has called Emma her sunshine all year long. (Even in text messages that we exchanged) So Emma decided to paint her a picture of sunshine. On the back of her painting she even got to title her work-My Sunshine. On the morning of her awards banquet she gave Mrs. Stevenson her masterpiece. Emma could hardly wait.

At the awards ceremony each student is called to the front and their teacher reads what their classmates had to say about them. Emma's friends said that she was a loyal friend, a good helper, a great artist, and a good reader. You could see the pride in each child's face as their turn came.

What a great looking class.

At the end of the day I snapped a great picture of Emma and Libby. I foresee a long time friendship here.
