Today I attended a graduation ceremony at the Boy's school. I was invited last week and really encouraged to come, but nobody would tell me why. The Boy isn't graduating, and although several of his friends were, I didn't know why it was such a big deal for me to come, but since I was asked, I went to the ceremony.
The Boy was given an award today! He was named Student of the Year for being the quintessential student all year long. He got the award in front of the Mayor, the Superintendent of Schools, two Assistant Superintendents, all of the housemasters, and many other community leaders. He was as surprised as I was, but so very very proud. He asked to have his award framed, not just hung on the fridge.
I can't begin to express how proud of him I am, and how much he's grown in the past year. He's such a great kid and has worked really hard all year for this award. He deserves all the kudos he got, and so much more.
Student of the Year! I just can't believe it. Stumble It! JBlog Me
