After the performance we were invited back to their classrooms for the author celebration. I love that our school does this for each grade and the writing samples are put into a binder that follow the kids the entire time they are at the school. In 5th grade we will get the binder back and have a collection of all of their writing from elementary school.
Also while we were there Harper gave me the sweetest Mother's Day gift! I just love it and loved how excited she was to give it to me.
Harper has just excelled in Kindergarten and absolutely adores her teacher. Ms. G. tells me that Harper is such a little assistant in the class and just loves helping any chance she can get.
I had a conference with Handley's teacher yesterday and literally got all teary thanking her for all that she has done for Handley. I prayed and prayed for excellent teachers for both my girls this year and I know my girls were in the exact classrooms that they needed to be in. Handley is very anxious about next year because in her eyes, it will be hard for a teacher to follow in Ms. S's footsteps.
I got to help her class out with a project today and part of that was me taking pictures of each of the students with Ms. S. I just LOVE this one!
One thing is for sure though, these two amazing teachers will hold a very special place in our hearts for a long time to come and the kids they will teach next year are a very lucky group.
