Another Reason We'll Miss Her

This afternoon I watched Brian exit his school while holding a plastic bag in his hands.

Right then I knew something was up.  Brian doesn't carry things.  Brian is above that....okay, I don't think he thinks that, but he hates to use his hands for anything other than flapping.  If you see Brian carrying his backpack or a bag of groceries that I force onto him, his face will usually be in a grimace and he'll be dragging it around as if it is half of his body weight.

Today was different because he was grinning from ear-to-ear and had this little happy skip going on.

Inside the bag was a game called Color Train.  Oh yes, it's a train game.  That explains the smile.

I thought it was something we got to play with for the night, like some of the projects/kits that had been handed out during the year.  Then his ed tech explained to me that Brian's teacher gave it to him.  To keep.  Have I mentioned how much I'm going to miss her next year?

I'm lamenting the loss of our teacher as well...I wish I could bribe her to move on up to second grade.  Would that be wrong?  Probably but I'm willing to try. ;)

Haha ...I said the same thing.  His teacher said "Can't he do a third year in Kindergarten?", I shook my head and said, "No, but you could become a first grade teacher" :)

Um, I'm going to need the name of the school and teacher.  I'll get started packing right now.
