Marvelous Maximus...

Last week Max brought home a letter from his teacher, Mrs. Wheeler. In it was a letter informing me that Max was chosen as the "Student of the Month." His teacher told me that I could tell him or I could surprise him, whichever I preferred. Of course I kept it a surprise. I arrived at his assembly and tried to keep out of sight but he spotted me right away, which wasn't really hard since Aidan was yelling "Max!  I'm over here!  It's Aidan!" at the top of his lungs. I still don't think Max realized why I was there until they called his name!  I couldn't even capture the look on his face since he was facing the opposite direction, but he was sure excited. He smiled through the whole thing. I took a video of what his teacher had to say about him. WARNING: the video is EXTREMELY shaky because I had a two year old climbing around my legs the whole time.  (you may even need to turn your volume up)

My two favorite boys in the WHOLE world!  
Aidan was pretty proud of Max as well. He went right up to him and gave him a big hug and said, "Good job Max! Why you on the front?" He didn't understand what was happening but he clapped right along with the rest of us. Congratulations Max!  We are so proud of you! You have worked so hard this year and really deserve to be honored!  WE LOVE YOU FOREVER!
