It's after midnight now, but a few hours ago our family was having a great time together at Patriot Hall here in Sumter. Dad and Mom also come out to join us for all the fun. Our Emerson graduated from elementary school. And what a night it was!
He was recognized for the following:
The Wells Fargo Academics, Citizenship, and Attendance Award
The Academic Excellence Award for "A-B Honor Roll All Year"
The Outstanding Music Student Award
The President's Award For Educational Excellence
The Certificate of Achievement for Completion of Elementary School
I'm proud of all four of the kids. They're all smart and talented young people. Tonight was just Emerson's night to shine. And I'm really happy for him.
Way to go, little buddy!
P.S. His reward was a trip to Baskin-Robbins for two scoops of cookies and cream ice cream. He seemed pretty happy about that!
