Micah's Kindergarten Reading Counts Ceremony

Kindergarten brought many things into Micah's life but most of all, it gave him a love of reading.  He didn't excel at handwriting or anything artistic but he learned to read and took off!  The goal to reach trophy in Kindergarten was 75 points.  He got 112 points.  He didn't even test for about three weeks toward the end of the program.  We haven't decided how invested we are going to let him be in this program.  We've seen the good and the bad side of Reading Counts with Jonah so involved.  But, for this year, we let him do it and he was so thrilled to receive a trophy.  
Jonah's eyes are closed in this photo but I couldn't leave out Micah's inspiration for being a good reader!

The fun part of reaching trophy level was being there with his buddies.  There were 10 Kindergarten kids total who reached at least 75 points and 6 of those were from Micah's class.  

His face...

Braeden is a 3rd grader who set a school record this year for the most points EVER and he happened to be Micah's reading buddy this year.  We all love Braeden so it was special for Micah that he was there.  

Preschool buddies and now Kindergarten buddies.  Let's see if they end up together in First Grade.  

Bless...these crazy boys were just babies and now they are getting awards for reading.  

And, with their big brothers who are also BIG readers!!!  (And, they are all crazy as you will notice in the progression of photos!)

It was a fun night getting to celebrate Micah's success.  He has sat through so many award programs for Jonah so it is fun to have him be the star for once.  And, let me tell ya...he soaked it all in!
