“I always pose to take pictures…even though I don’t like them,” he told the others while at DonutWorld, September 16, 2014, 8:09 a.m.
From Daddy: For the past about six days ago, he mentioned that there would be a surprise today (Tuesday) at his before school program. By four days ago, he said excitedly that he couldn’t wait for the surprise.
Today, I made sure to get us to school extra early (before 8 a.m.) to make sure that we didn’t miss the surprise.
I’m still not sure what was the surprise, but he and five other first-graders got to walk to DonutWorld before school as well as to pick up the weekly bao for Tuesdays. Regardless, he was very happy. I joined on the walk today and took the photo above.
