Bye-Bye Second Grade :(

Nathan had Awards Day and Field Day today.  The day started with a very emotional awards ceremony.  Mrs. Wood, Nathan's teacher, and Mrs. Stephanie, her assistant, looped with this class last year.  So, they have had these kids for 2 years, and I must say, have become very attached.   Mrs. Wood gave each student an individual award, from most creative, to funniest, to most organized.  We knew Nathan would not even be in the running for that one, bless his heart.  She cried with each one given.  As you will see in the pics to follow, their eyes are very swollen and red.  After the awards, we headed out to the soccer fields to have Field Day.  They played old games like, egg toss, sack race, and three legged race.  It was a lot of fun.  I cannot begin to tell you how much Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Stephanie have meant to Nathan and our family.  We will never forget his second grade year.  He has grown academically and socially.  Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Stephanie have been the reason.  You can tell a HUGE difference when teachers love their job and love their students!  Thank you Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Stephanie for an incredible, unforgettable year!  We love you!
