1. I LOVE Drew's school for doing programs like this. Her teacher works hard, as do all the other 1st grade teachers, to put on these culminating events. Today was a President's Day/patriotic theme. They sang, performed the Pledge of Allegiance in sign language, and recited all the presidents in order.
2. Drew is so grown up and absolutely not a little girl anymore. (She is off to the left there in the picture holding the flag).
3. She will always be the tree in the school play, the rebounder on the basketball court, the one in the too-short pants, annnnnd the flag holder. I was too. It comes with being the tallest. An honorable position, if you ask me...
