Underfoot was promoted to the 1st grade.
|Principal G and Underfoot|
The elementary school held a graduation
with each child's name being announced
along with their hoped for future profession.
|Hurricane thinks his tongue should be out in most pictures.|
Underfoot had mentioned his future profession to us
before it was announced,
and we smiled and thought great.
|Mrs. T, kindergarten teacher, and Underfoot|
Little did we know that
the teacher would say,
"GJ wants to be a mechanical engineer,
JL wants to be a mechanical engineer,
Underfoot wants to be a ninja,
MM wants to be a chemical engineer."
|Underfoot and Miss T, classroom helper|
He explained later that a ninja is like a spy who does only good things.
I walked out of the school thinking,
"oh boy, a ninja,"
and I turned to a friend and said,
"He reminded us all that he is 6
and it's awesome to be 6."
