Ben and his 4th grade teacher Mrs. Quillen. Monday was the awards ceremony for 4th grade. I was so proud of Ben. He raked those bad boys in. He is most proud of his Presidential Physical Fitness Award...that is pretty hard to get...only 6 kids in his class earned it.
Poor Ben got called up on stage a few times...you know he does NOT like to be the center of attention at all. But I sure was excited!
These are the three 4th graders who had all A's for the whole year. That little sweetie on the right in the sundress...Hannah, her mom and I agreed that it's too bad we are moving because those two would have been fun to see during the high school years...she is so smart, a level 6 gymnast, plays violin...right up Ben's alley.
Okay so Ben comes home Monday afternoon with his spelling/vocabulary list for the week...first word on there was tintinnabulation. I had to ask Ben how to say it and what it was. I am his mom and I have never seen or heard that word in my life.
He took some standardized tests...had the highest 4th grade score AND outscored all the 5th graders but one. If he didn't look so much like us I would wonder if he was really our child...I am so proud.
