Joseph won a reading competition among the whole 2nd grade and was awarded a brand new bike!! This all happened the week before school let out for Christmas break, so I haven't had a chance to write about this wonderful event. He and a female second grader..Kat, were the special winners and we couldn't be more proud! His teacher called us the day before the winners were announced, and asked us if we could be at the school early the next morning for the announcement. They were planning on awarding the bikes during the schools morning news program. The instructions were for us to keep it a secret and surprise him. Lem and I were so excited we could hardly stand it!

The next morning, Lem, Presley and me arrived at the school bright and early to see the presentation. His face was priceless!!! They brought him down to the gym from his homeroom class as soon as his name was announced as the male winner.

We are so proud of our little reader. He absolutely LOVES to read and can't get enough of books!

Congratulations, little Prince!!

proud as a peacock,
