Since Calvin is a native English speaker, he was chosen to help with an English competition that their school was taking part in. Of course we didn’t find out about it until last minute and was given his lines one day and told him to know them by the next day. He was the only 1st grader that got to participate, the rest of the group were 4th graders and he was pretty proud about that fact.
It took us a while to figure out what exactly it was. Turns out it was a play they had to prepare and then preform it. He was pretty excited that he got to miss several days of school because he had practice, then the competition.
Then one of the days his last week of school, Marvin went to go pick him up from school and he wasn’t there, they had taken him to some awards event to receive an award. I’m pretty sure he got the award because he’s American but whatever. He was pretty proud and they gave him some ice cream and a chocolate gun, so it made it even more special.
