Mother's Day Tea

Claire's class invited all the moms for a Mother's Day tea on Friday. When I entered the room, Claire greeted me and escorted me to my chair (at her desk). She then offered me tea and cookies. (so sweet!)

After all of the moms had arrived, the students took turns at the front of the class. They were "supposed" to read a poem they had written about their mom, but most became too shy. BUT...when it was Claire's turn the teacher said, "Claire, I know YOU won't let me down. Please come up and read your poem!" So, off WE went to the front of the class. Claire read her poem and then I had to decide which drawing on the board was the one Claire drew of me. :-) The class then performed the song "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" in sign language.

The poem:

My mom is always there for me,
she helps me if I'm hurt.
She keeps everything clean,
and helps me with my homework!
