No, you’re not confused – it is only Wednesday, not Sunday.  But, I thought this was a big enough event to warrant an extra post this week.

Yesterday afternoon was the final band concert at Immanuel Christian Elementary, and the kids did a great job.  Both the boys played, and John even had a solo!

One of the highlights of the afternoon, though, was grade 6 graduation.  It’s not a big thing – they get their name called, and receive a certificate and a poster from the school.  But as a mom?  It’s huge.

It hasn’t been an easy year for John, but I’m so proud of him.  He’s come a long way, and worked hard. Just yesterday his teacher told me how he’d nailed his last two Provincial Achievement Tests.  A lot of his success this year has been in part to the staff at our school, particularly his home room teacher. Mr. B has been such a godly influence in John’s life – guiding him through situations, keeping him accountable, and being a good example.  Thanks so much, Mr. B…..

So, that is the end of ICES for John.  In the fall he’ll head off to the big, bad high school…..just kidding, he’ll love it there!
