Today was the last day of school for Conway and Mary Kathleen.
It was a half day. On this day there is a closing ceremony and the children are called by name to receive awards related to their demonstration throughout the year of their understanding of the goals and criteria of a sacred heart education. Connie's award was for consistently demonstrating enthusiasm for learning. We can hardly believe that 10 months ago our boy had just had open heart surgery and we questioned whether or not he was really ready academically, physically and emotionally for the primary (kindergarten)year.
Here he is today 10 pounds heavier, 4 inches taller and READING!
He just brought home a reading end of unit test with an 89%. But get this... it was a FIRST grade, unit two test! We are so thankful for the education he is receiving and are so proud of all that he has accomplished. He really is a walking miracle and a testament to the power of prayer and perseverance.
