At times it felt like this day was never going to arrive: Thom and Vinnie’s last day of school.
They went to school dressed in their costumes for Oberlin’s production of Cats. Thom was McCavity the street cat and Vinnie a dancing mouse. Errol and I rode our bikes later in the morning to watch the show. The kids did a great job.
Thom participated in the graduation ceremony. Every fourth grader received a little diploma, gift, and the teacher made a speech about each child. At the end of the ceremony, Vinnie’s teacher brought her on stage and did the same for her since she was also leaving the school. It was very thoughtful.
Thom’s friend came with him following the festivities for more birthday celebrations. It was fun to hear Thom and Vinnie speak German all afternoon.
