Congrats to our little graduate!

There's just something about Pomp and Circumstances that brings tears to the eyes. *sniff, sniff*  Emma received awards today... for counting to 100...and for perfecting sound systems..,
She also got two special awards...The Miss Manners Award: " Thank you for showing respect and being a great role model in Kindergarten.  I'm proud of you!"  Ms. Rausch shared that Emma is the epitome of this award.  Evidently, when interrupted she says, "Excuse me, I was talking...can I please finish what I was saying?  Thank you!"

...and The Most Improved Award:  "You learned so much this year!  Thank you for working so hard.  I'm proud of you!"
Her kid brother was hilarious...He loves her classroom.  He has another year to wait...but he's gonna love Kindergarten he just knows it!
Our adorable little graduate! *sigh*
I'm so thankful for Emma's teacher Ms. Rausch...It was her first year teaching and she got a challenging assignment; two classes with assorted levels of development and two different locations.  She taught Emma's class  in the morning and across town in the afternoon!  But she had tons of energy and was sweet and wonderful with the kids!  Best of all, she really prepared them for First Grade!
We also loved Mrs. Robertson the classroom aide...She loved Emma too!  She was zany and fun...and incredibly helpful.  By the end of the year she thought of what Ms. Rausch would need next...like clockwork.  Awesome to watch a well oiled machine!
Emma loved Mrs. Pyle the Speech Pathologist who works with all Kindergartners on sound systems...a computer program that helps them with pre-literacy sounds, etc.  Considering the fact that Emma loves to sing...and many were put to song...this is a no-brainer.  She thought it was the best!
