Character Counts Year 2

We are so proud of Aaron for receiving the Character Counts awards for his class.  This is his 2nd year to receive the award the very first six weeks of school.  Unlike last year, this time he knew what a big deal this award is, and he was super excited when his name was called at the awards ceremony.  The award goes to the student in each class that the teacher feels best represents excellent character.   We celebrated with a family dinner out and an ugly cookie cake that night.

Caleb's First Field Trip

Caleb had his first field trip with his pre-school class this month.  He was super excited to reach this milestone since Aaron also got to visit the same fire station when he was in the Busy Bee class.  I was able to go with Caleb, and it was great to experience it with him.  He was quite and observant for the most part but leaned over and whispered excitedly in my ear one time during the presentation, “Mommy, I have something to tell you. Fire trucks are awesome!”  His favorite part was seeing where the firefighters sleep.  He thought it would be very cool to spend the night in the fire station.
