Mother's Day Tea

Harrison had a Mother's Day Tea at his school on the 8th.  It was really sweet.  When we got there, all of the kids were sitting in a circle.  They had a little performance for us!  This is Harrison pointing at me while singing "Skidamarink."  LOVE that smile!
After the performance, the kids went around and told their mom's what made them special.  Harrison was last.  He followed suit and said "Because she gives me hugs and kisses" like a lot of the other kids.  At least that is what I thought.  His teacher, Miss Margaret, stopped me later and told me that they practiced what they were going to say ahead of time and that she asked Harrison to go first.  And she was glad because he said 'hugs and kisses' and that started the group off on the right foot.  Ahhhh - he is such a good kid!!!!!

Then it was time for the tea.  Harrison was a gentleman and took me to my seat where he presented me with a flower!
Then he served me little cucumber sandwiches and tea.  Very cute.  After all of the moms were served, the kids got to have their snack.  It was very fun and the kids were just so excited to do this for their moms.

School is over for the year.  They had a day at the park on the 14th and then the last day was the 22nd.  It was a good year.  Harrison never got a bad report home and he always wanted to go!  I guess that makes me lucky, but it also makes me very proud.  He seems to be one of those kids that lets his steam off at home, but follows the rules at school.  I hope it stays that way!  Next year we go 4 days a week.  Can't wait!

I've been told I was that way too...great at school, never seemed to have a bad day...then I would come home and unleash the beast (mostly middle school though I think maybe). I always thought I was pretty well adjusted...Dad seems to remember things a little differently : )
