Project ~ Happiness

Wow! I can hardly believe that it has been two weeks since my last post. Time has really gotten away from me. The last couple of weeks we have been extremely busy with the end of the year activities at my son's school. Speaking of school. . . I can't believe he graduated Pre-K this year. It is so hard to believe that it is summer vacation already! Yikes! This week for Project Happiness I thought I would share a very bitter sweet memory for me. . .

Shane's Diploma

With it being a very special day I decided to do something a little extra special for his class. This was in no way required. I just thought it was a really big milestone for these kids and they deserved something a little special.

Since the day was so special they put on a special performance for the parents. They worked so hard on their songs and dances. I was really proud of all of the students. Here they are sitting patiently as the parents arrived for the special day.

Graduating Class

We were really lucky to have teachers who really cared about all of their students. They were patient, loving, and kind. It really saddened me and the rest of the class to see the year end. While I know they are moving on to more wonderful teachers, it is hard to ignore the bond that is created between teacher and student. Shane loved each and every one of his teachers. He had three. His teacher and two para-assistants. I hope that bond will never be broken.

Shane, M, and his teachers.

It is clearly obvious that they each care about their students. We were extremely lucky to have such devoted teachers for our little boys first year in school. Thank you to all of the teachers out there who love their students unconditionally, but most of all for being teachers.

So, what makes you happy? Feel free to join in on the fun. Make your post and head on over to Leigh vs. Laundry's blog to link up with the rest of the gang.

Until next time. . .
