He's Not Crazy About Being The Center Of Attention

N turns 6 today, and you know I'll have more to say about that later. But today was special for another reason, too. He was awarded Student of the Month for his class; his teacher told me it was an obvious choice because he's been making such a huge effort to go beyond his comfort zones. (He sits on the rug with the rest of the kids! Every day! And he's even standing and facing in the direction of the flag when they say the Pledge of Allegiance! That's progress.)

At his school, they give out the Student of the Month awards at their monthly award ceremony, and the kids are asked to come up in front of the whole school, which assembles on the main playground. (Yes, they do assemblies outdoors; we live in LA, and I can think of only two times in five years that an assembly has been rained out, and maybe one or two more where it's been uncomfortably cold or windy.) There, he was to receive his certificate and then go stand on line facing the assembled students. This whole idea FREAKED Noah out, poor thing. But, really, a picture is worth a thousand words.
