Super Star of the Week

Talk about a week FULL of all kinds of fun!  Sandwiched between all the Heart Walk activity last weekend and the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission’s annual Bayou event coming up THIS Saturday, it’s Rudy’s turn to be “Super Star of the Week” THIS WEEK at school which means he gets to share a little about himself each day, he gets to be line leader each day AND sit at the front of the class during circle time, etc, etc…  Not surprisingly, Rudy is EATING IT UP, relishing being in the spotlight and LOVING the special attention from his teachers and classmates.  I’m a little nervous he’ll experience a tough “fall from grace” next week when he’s no longer Super Star of the Week but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.  🙂

On Day 1, Rudy shared this letter with his classmates to introduce interesting facts about himself.  :)  (A similar letter was well received last year at La Patera)

In the midst of it all, of course,we celebrate TODAY…10-01-2014…Rudy’s 6th Birthday!  My emotions have been all over the map today but bottom line our boy is deeply loved, he’s happy, easily laughs and eagerly embraces life…any way he can.  He’s growing in independence, determination and ability.  He’s moving forward which means we’re moving forward along with him…one step at a time.  Happy Birthday Rudy…you enrich the life of our family.
