I am so proud of him. During this time, we faced many challenges in our family and his faith and determination have carried him through. He is a willing helper. He was also voted Best 5th grade best friend in his class, as well as Most Admirable. His teacher said these two awards don't ever go to the same person. I think these awards mean more to me than his A honor role throughout the entire year. I am impressed that he has made that much of an impression on his classmates.
This good-bye was like a good-bye for me, too. I have spent the last 6 years volunteering, mentoring, and just being in the school. I have spent hours and hours there. Now, we are moving on. We moved and now J will start going to a different elementary school. I will miss our old school. I love the principal. I love the counselor. I love the teachers. I love it all. We have been very blessed. I will miss them terribly.
