First Grade Authors & Awards Day

Monday, July 1, 2013
A few days before school ended, Harper's class celebrated with an Authors & Awards day. It was the cutest thing. The children were paired up with a classmate. They had to interview each other and write an "All About" story about their partners.

They read their stories into a microphone in front the class, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. It really was the sweetest thing.

Harper was paired with her friend Ben. Harper first met Ben in preschool. My girlfriend Nancy is best friends with Ben's mom, Michelle, and the both of them had met years earlier when their older children were together in preschool. We all became friends quickly. And we were thrilled to learn that Ben would be in class with Harper this year.

First Harper told everyone all about Ben.

And then it was Ben's turn to tell everyone about Harper.

I was amazed that these children weren't nervous to get up in front of a room packed full of people. We were so proud of Ben and Harper.

After all the stories were read, it was time to receive the awards.

Another school year gone but definitely not forgotten.
