On the last day of school, the entire student body at Megan’s school put on a Dance Festival. Each grade has a traditional dance they perform at the end of each year. First grade did the “Ribbon Dance.” Megan was the cutest little ribbon-er out there.
I didn’t get any pictures of Megan doing the dance because she wanted the entire thing on video. Oops! Here she is with her sister after though.
Megan had such wonderful teachers this year. Both were a perfect match for her. Her English teacher was patient and experienced, and her Chinese teacher was young and eager. Both had such wonderful things to say about Megan at the end of the year. Her English teacher got teary-eyed telling me how much she loved Megan and how much she was going to miss her. She was so proud of how far Megan had come and complimented her genuine sweetness and good heart. Her Chinese teacher was more impressed by Megan’s academic prowess. All year long, whenever she saw me, she would just get this huge smile on her face and tell me how great Megan was doing and how amazed she was by her. The last day of school she told me that Megan was just excelling in Chinese and was capable of using Chinese to a much further extent than any of the other students she had. It’s so funny that at the beginning of the year, she was telling us that Megan never ever seemed to pay attention. We told her not to worry, she was paying attention even though it didn’t seem like it.
We decided to enroll Megan into a Summer school program that ran through the month of June. When school officially ended, Megan wasn’t ready for Summer to begin. She needed some help with the transition from all day school to all day Summer, so the summer school program was perfect. It was just three hours a day, four days a week. She is also participating in a Chinese program that was a week long in June and once a week through July. I think it’s a wonderful tender mercy that Megan will have school programs for 2 months out of the Summer. She doesn’t have to leave school abruptly, nor does she have to suddenly start up again in the Fall. A real blessing.
Let the fun in the sun begin!!!
