Like a rocket...

He blasts off into third grade!  This has been such a fast year, it nearly made my head spin!  On Honors Day, one of Colby's awards was for Student of the Month that he received back in March.
He was also one of two students in the second grade that received Perfect Attendance this school year.  His first time ever...... :)
Give us a little smile C........
And then there was fake!! :) He was so self-conscious about people watching him!  He also received a T-shirt award for AR this year too. 
I'm so proud that he made honor roll all year long and did well academically.  It probably helped a lot that Melissa was ready and waiting with a fly swatter when he needed some extra motivation! :)  Third grade is going to mean SO much more independence, and that worries me greatly!  It is going to be a big adjustment for us next year....... We love and appreciate everything Mrs. Tatum did for Colby this year!
