Mothers Day Present #1

Cassidy and her Mama

Every month or so Mrs. Workman's 2nd grade class has a little program that the kids put on in the classroom. Today it was a special Mothers Day program. The kids worked really hard in preparing for this special day. They made invitations, presents, cards, poems, learned new songs, and they made lunch for all the Mothers.

Yes, today was special!

I sat and cried through most of the program.

And I don't cry.

I cried because Cassidy is getting so big. I cried because I wanted my Mom to be there to see this magical performance. I cried because the children were so sweet and so confidant. And I cried because Mrs. Workman has made Cassidy LOVE school. She has totally helped Cassidy overcome so many of her insecurities and just blossom. How do I show this wonderful woman my gratitude?

We ended the program by having a nice lunch with our big, almost 3rd graders in the library. They served us - a potato bar and sherbet. Then they cleaned up! Such a treat. This is what makes being a Mother worth it!

what a great teacher! I don't cry much either, but for some reason London just makes the tears well up! I have never been like that. When she started to smile it was a tear fest :) I don't want her to be in the 3rd grade :(

I know I already left a comment, but I just wanted to tell you:

"Happy Mother's Day!" (tomorrow)

It means even more when you have to work so hard for it, don't you think?
