Since Bennett's birthday fell on the last day of school, which is pretty chaotic, Mrs. Greer suggested that I come in on Tuesday. I arrived Tuesday morning to read a couple of birthday books to her class. I love this special time, all of the kids are so cute and excited for any parent to come in. They all sit Indian style on a rug and gather around me (I feel like Mary Poppins). Bennett wore her special birthday hat that Mrs. Greer gives each child, and got to sit front and center. Preston tagged along, and had fun sitting on the carpet with all the "big kids." I later came back for lunch with the birthday girl, which is the tradition for the parents.
Wednesday, I was back at the school for another lunch (my third time that week), and then the awards ceremony. Each kindergarten class had their own, and it is the teacher's discretion to come up and award each student with a little award. It was cute, and I loved how the students started shouting out their guesses as it went on. Mrs. Greer was very creative, hitting on all types of talents of various kids, but I was most proud of Bennett's award of "Hardest Worker."

After school, she was in a better mood...probably cause she knew we were out for ice cream with our carpool buddies. I think everyone in Homewood had the same idea, as Edgewood was slammed with kiddos getting ice cream, icees, and just walking around. The lines were long, but quick, so it worked out perfectly.
