We sat on the edges of our seats with our cameras at the ready as the school principal called the names of all the children who made the honor roll both A and A/B for the entire year. My daughter and I glanced at each other when my grandsons name wasn't called.
We traded looks. You know the kind that Mom's and Grandmothers trade because we think our kids are the smartest and best looking. I know you know what I'm talking about if you have kids!
When the children who have "good grades" in this school they are acknowledged for excelling by being asked to stand in place and face the audience. I thought that was a rather nice way for the kids to be seen and appreciated for their efforts. After what seemed forever, speeches by countless teaches & guests and an adorable music program by the children the graduation concluded.
My youngest grandson is now headed to middle school in September. Where did the time go?
After we said our goodbyes to the teacher and walked out to the parking lot and we opened up his report card. Honor roll.....for all the report cards. Apparently there must have been an oversight. One which Xavier didn't seem all that bothered about, he's an easygoing child.
So my blog friends this is my grandson Xavier.
He was on the A/B honor roll the entire year. I was hoping you would be his audience. Let's make believe the principle is saying his name...Xavier....hes turning...he's turning....he's facing you... I'm clapping, clapping......
Are you clapping?
I can't hear you !
