Every year the boys' school has a big fundraiser that they call the Walk-A-Thon. They ask kiddos to gather money to go toward something big at the school and then they dress up crazy and walk/run as many times as they can around the school yard, getting prizes along the way. The boys absolutely love it. It is running with their friends, laughing, and getting cool stuff, how could you not?
I am so thankful for their first grade teacher, Mrs. Caires, and the class that the boys are involved in this year. They really have some amazing students and adults around them constantly, and I am grateful for all that they are learning. This year the first graders have been split into groups according to reading level, and are being challenged in that area, which the boys have absolutely loved. Their "power-up" teacher for reading is also amazing, and I feel so blessed that they are in good hands all day long with both of their teachers!

Their sweet teacher, Mrs Caires, ran pretty much the WHOLE hour!!! She is so awesome!
