Britt's Poetry Cafe

Last night Britt's class held their Poetry Cafe, and it was, of course, SPECTACULAR! The turnout was huge, and every kid did a wonderful job of reciting their poems, "en espanol," into a microphone in front of everyone. They all wore black and white clothes, and Britt posed for his Big Mama before we left. Isn't he a handsome one? I love that precious face of his... You can see his sweet heart right through those big blue eyes.

 Britt  and his best friend, Daniel - two peas in a pod!
Sra. Downes is the best teacher I have ever seen. She is the whole package, and I felt like crying when the evening was coming to a close. When she was Brailey's teacher, I still had hope that she would be Britt's second grade teacher, as well. Thank goodness she was! Now, we have to move on to the higher grades, and we will miss her so much. She is the perfect teacher, truly - kind, fun, organized, sweet and strict. I am grateful beyond words that both of my B's were able to experience her teaching.
Britt and Brady as we were leaving - Brady had to meet us at the school and change in the pickup due to his working late. And he still looks handsome as ever! I so love these B boys of mine...
