Not gonna lie.  I was nervous about Cason starting kindergarten.  I knew he would do good.  I just...I don't know.  I'm his mom.  I didn't want him to just "do okay."  I wanted him to great.  I wanted him to love it.  I wanted him to love school as much as I did.  Mission accomplished.  This kid rocked kindergarten.  He loves his school.  At the awards assembly he got the P.E Award for his class (my father in law was there to see that...which was pretty awesome since he is a retired PE teacher), the "Excellent Library Patron" award, the "Great Listener" award, and the "Awesome Poet" award.  We are so, so proud of the young man he is becoming. 

In addition to that, his school holds a school wide "Declamation."  Every student in the school memorizes a poem and recites it for the class.  Then they pick the top ten from each class to compete for the grade level.  Then three from each grade level are picked to recite it for the whole school.  Cason got top three for kindergarten.  Again, he blew me away! I loved getting to see him perform it for everyone and even though he didn't win the whole thing, I couldn't be any prouder.  I didn't get any pictures of him performing because I was recording it.  But he was awesome!
