Yesterday was Nolan's day to be his class leader. That means he got to present his paper to the class. Then the other children each had to draw a picture of Nolan and write something they learned about him. This morning I finally had the chance to sit down and look at Nolan's book of papers from his classmates. It made my heart happy.
The very first paper in the book:
|This is Nolan. He likes to go to church.|
|This is Nolan. He likes his mom's cookies and candy. He has one sister!|
|This is Nolan. He likes church. He likes cookies.|
|This is Nolan. He likes baseball.|
|This is Nolan. He likes cookies.|
|This is Nolan. His favorite color is green and orange.|
|This is Nolan. He loves his mom, dad, brother, and sister.|
|This is Nolan. He is going to church with his mom and dad and sister.|
And Nolan's page in his book:
|I am Nolan. I like Marvel. I like baseball. My favorite Bible stories are Jonah and David.|
I wish I had taken a picture of his original paper that he made to tell about himself. It was so cute.
I love that Nolan felt so special yesterday. I'm glad his classmates were able to get to know him better.
On a day when I needed some encouragement as a mom, I received it. Nolan's classmates know him as the kid who likes church. Thank you, God, for small successes. Today I got one thing right.
