September Student of the Month



Today Jonathan's school had their first monthly Afternoon Awards Assembly. I (Momma) thought about going but I didn't because it was right during naptime. I sure wish I had gone! Jonathan was awarded September Student of the Month ("Awarded for being Responsible"). He had no idea he was getting the award and was very caught off guard when they called his name. He said he didn't even hear his name and his teacher had to wave him upfront. Then, he went up infront of the whole school assembly to get his award. He said after everyone clapped, they took his picture. Jonathan was clearly excited about getting the award but I had to pull the details of everything out of him. Here's a few of his comments:

(Momma) How did it make you feel to get the award?
(Jonathan) HAPPY!
(Momma) How did you feel being up infront of everyone?
(Jonathan) Nervous. Um, Ma, I've never been in front of that many people before.
(Momma) What should we do to celebrate?
(Jonathan) I KNOW! Go to Chuck E Cheese!!
