Yesterday was Alex's graduation ceremony from Grade 6. It's one of those mixed-emotion experiences for us. On the one hand, so very proud of what he's done and how far he's come. On the other, now we're headed into new and unfamiliar territory.
The teachers at South March have been wonderful. They genuinely care about Alex and the other kids in the class. I couldn't have asked for a better group or for one who worked harder. They are going to be an incredibly tough act to follow.
Alex did very well at the ceremony, which was over an hour and included almost a hundred Grade 6s graduating. Only a few bits of commentary (including one moment during the principal's speech where she said it was time to say goodbye, so Alex naturally announced "Bye-Bye" to the room). He seemed genuinely pleased to see me and Dave at the ceremony.
All of the kids in the program did fantastically. They look so big and grown-up compared to when we first started. They've all made great strides and I wish them best of luck going forward.
