Christopher was beaming from ear to ear because this morning he started the first day of fifth grade with the teacher that I had requested. Our plea was granted Friday afternoon and we're happy! Mrs. Terry is his new teacher, and she is also our neighbor and lives down the street from us.
Christopher has about five of his friends in this class too. He's going to have an awesome year with Mrs. Terry. She's really nice and treats others respectfully. Since he missed the first four days of school, he was extra eager to be there today. One of his buddies in his class has been on vacation and is starting the same time, so they'll be getting caught up together.
