Richard was chosen for the month of May to receive the "Paws-ing to Praise" Award for excellence in his classroom. His teacher present him with a ribbon and a certificate. He was chosen because he does such beautiful (and meticulous) work and is honest in school. I was proud of him! He is reading his certificate while everyone watches. :)
Afterward Ben took the little boys to the neighboring park.
And later that same day Richard's class had a short Mother's Day presentation. They recited some poems and sang songs for us. Then they served their mothers juice and cookies. :) Very grand indeed. :) His teacher is wonderful and provides many opportunities for the parents to be in the class. I have loved this year with her. Richard was so sweet and I am grateful we are together.
