Last Friday I was able to stand in for Samuel’s grandparents at the first grade annual grandparent’s/VIP day. This was the culmination of all the first graders work on memorizing poems and songs during the school year. Samuel was so excited about this day that he kept reminding me about it constantly. I got there about ten minutes before it started and the gym was already about half full. Since it was only me, I was able to snag a lone chair in the front on the side. Luckily I chose the side that Samuel was on so I could take a pretty good video of him singing. After all the fun was over everyone got to go with their student to their classroom and see all the work they have done and also get a roll and some juice. Samuel was excited to show me who he sat by and all the fun things about his classroom. I think the best part for Samuel was being able to leave school early and go and get a treat with mom. Samuel, you are the best first grader ever!
