Philip received "student of the month" honors for his class yesterday in "chapel." The photo shows all the darling first-graders at VCS who received the award this month. (There are four first-grade sections, and each month each teacher chooses two students from the section to be honored.) Students receive the award for obedience, kindness, attentiveness, and hard work in their learning. Philip, though his teacher didn't exactly say this, earned his little certificate for his extraordinary charm and cuteness, brilliant intellect, hilarious sense of humor, etc. I told him that, to me, he was not just "student of the month" but "Philip of forever."
