Star Student

Catherine Ellis was Star Student the week of March 16th at school - so much fun!  She counted down the days until her big day and we worked hard on her poster all weekend making it look just right.

Getting ready to present her Star Student Poster with all her favorite things

At this point in the year, many of her friends have had the opportunity to shine and she wanted to shine just as brightly, though I tried hard to convey to her that her Mama wasn't nearly as creative and crafty as other Mamas - but nothing deterred our girl.

After sifting through pictures upon pictures she selected 12 of her most favorite to print, then insisted we use glitter to decorate her awesome poster.  Glitter we did! (make sure your volume is turned up - our girl is a bit shy it seems in front of the group)

Most special of all, Meme and I got to join Cat at school to see her introduce her Star Student poster to her classmates and have Meme read one of Cat's favorite books - Fancy Nancy.  It was magical! Meme loved being back in the classroom and interacting with all the children.  Cat was super proud we were there and it was fun to be a part of her day.

I should probably also mention that it was St. Patrick's Day - that's why you see CE dressed with her St. Patty's Day costume - she's the prettiest little leprechaun I know!

Reading to her classmates

We even joined her for lunch afterwards - and quickly stuffed our bellies with goodness (their lunch is 25 minutes - which seems SO fast!).  It was a wonderful day to celebrate our star with her friends!

 Selfie at lunch - fastest lunch I've ever seen Catherine Ellis eat!

 Love her so!
