The sixth graders had all dressed up, and the parents of girls had bouquets of flowers ready. Isaac and a number of other kids received an academic Honor Award for achieving a grade point average of 3.7 or higher. He was pleasantly surprised as he was called to come forward and shake the Principle's hand and get his award. At that point Isaac had not yet found us in the crowd as he usually does, but by the end of the whole ceremony he had.
When the time came for the general graduation roll to be read, they had each child stand where they were with their class to be recognized. Sweet, silly boy- he looked right at us and waved.

Summer had now begun.
