And, having so many of her favorite people surrounding her, carrying a sign with her pictures on it, seeing everyone wearing badges with her face and name on them, she truly felt special. Like a princess.
And it showed.
On her face, illuminated, beaming, the whole time. Not a single cloud, not a single whine, never overwhelmed, smiling throughout.
And it was wonderful.
Sammi with a classmate. We were so thrilled to have K. and her mother there, as well as Samantha's teacher!
When Batman asked Sammi who her favorite superhero is, she smiled just about as big a smile as you can get and answered, "Me!!!" Nevermind that I don't actually think she really knows what a superhero is...but maybe she does...? She'd have been absolutely right, too.
Her former preschool teacher, Miss K. joined us for the 2nd year in a row. We're so fortunate to have the support that we do! Miss K. is now thinking about getting into Special Education!
Put my kid in a classroom full of her peers and ask her to get up in front of them to recite something, and she shuts down. Stick her on a stage in front of a gazillion people and hand her a microphone, and she's a natural. Go figure...
Y M C A!
Daddy got all the love.
These two little scamps were not out to make friends. Heeeey, who's that under there?
I am in pictures, I swear it! Just not the ones taken from my own camera. I'll post the team photo when I get it back from the photographer.
