Somewhere over the rainbow

N's debut as calendar monitor last week did not go unnoticed by his teacher. Here's a note that Baroy sent to his brothers this afternoon, after picking N up at school and talking with Ms. F, his teacher:

It's taken N all year to be able to get up in class and be the "Calendar Monitor," which he finally did last week. When I picked him up today his teacher said that she was going to give him the "Teacher's Choice Award" at the monthly assembly this Wednesday on the last day of school. She said he's going to get it for "Finding his courage." I assume once she gives him the award, she'll then be climbing into a hot air balloon piloted by the school's wizard, um, principal, and flying back to Kansas.

He cracks me up, my husband.

Cool story.


Okay, I'm done now. Acceptance is the answer to all of my problems today.

How wonderful that N has a teacher who truly understands the difficulty of reaching outside the comfort zone. It can be as hard as flying away, with or without a hot air balloon.

Congratulations. What a wonderful end to the year!
