Okay, so I spent the day at the school yesterday, first doing my regular volunteering for Miss Missy's Kindergarten class, then moved on the Kid 2's class to help out with whatever was needed. She is so great. I really love his teacher. This is her 2nd year teaching this child. She moved up to third grade this year and I jumped at the opportunity to have her again. She taught Kid 1in 2nd grade, too. AND, I had her to sign a promissary note that she would not retire until she had Miss Missy. That was BEFORE the orders were dropped for Arizona. (BOOOO)
So yesterday, she had Kid 2 pick up the library books from the class and choose a partner to help him return the stack to the library. He chose and was happy to roll the books down the hallway on one of the rolling chairs. When they left, Mrs. B came over to me and said,
"I'm so proud of Cam for choosing her."
She went on the explain that NO ONE ever picks this little girl. She said the girl is quiet and shy. On top of that, she was obviously a little overweight. We all remember what it was like for shy children that had ANYTHING different about them. Some of us may have even been that child at one point or another.
Well, when he came back, she gave him a HOOT LOOT ticket. (A ticket given when you are caught being Prepared, Polite and Positive)
She asked him did he know why he was getting a ticket and took him into the hallway to explain it to him.
How great is my child, you ask?
Well, when she came back in, she told me that she asked him, "Why did you pick Sally? (not really her name... I don't think)"
He told her. "Well, I wanted to pick some one to help me that I have never picked before. Everyone should have a chance to help."
Seeeeeee! Isn't he just the coolest child ever?? He has such a good heart. He is the one that gives me the most lip, but he is also the one who's heart is way bigger than... well, his HEAD!
