Jason's Kindergarten class has a tradition in which the "Student of the Week" gets to take "Judah" home for the weekend. Judah is a huge stuffed dog. He comes with a special backpack full of books and a coloring book. The student has to bring everything back on Monday so that Judah can go home with a new student on Friday.
Aldridge forgot to award Judah at the end of school Friday, so Janessa
caught me when I went to go pick up Katelyn from youth service. She
said that Sis Aldridge wanted Jason to have Judah this weekend, but she
forgot to send him home. She went into the classroom and got Judah for
me to take home.
Jason was already asleep when I got
home, so Katelyn sat Judah on Jason's bed for him to see in the
morning. Jason says that he did see Judah when he woke up, but he
didn't bring him down or say anything to us for awhile. When he finally
did bring Judah down, he was full of smiles and happiness that he was
the chosen student.
Judah is also enjoying his time with us. Turns out, he likes coffee.
Congratulations, Jason. I'm very proud of you!
