Lucas is the Treasured Student

Every student in Mrs. Siefker's room had a chance at being the "Treasured Student".  So, when it was Lucas's turn, we diligently gathered all the needed supplies.   You know, the baby pictures, pictures of a special time, filled out his paper about his favorites, etc.  Something super special his teacher had the students do was to write a letter to his or her parents to read aloud to the class.  We, as parents, also included a letter to Lucas to read to his class.  
Derrick was excited to see that when Lucas grows up he wants to be a pastor. 
Since I was off of work well before the boys were out of school, I was able to be present for Lucas's "Treasured Student" moment.  It was really very cute.  The kids all gathered on the carpet, and Lucas was in the teacher's chair.  He proudly read his letters to and from us.  He slowly pulled each "treasure" out of his bag....LEGOS, his pin trading set from Disney, favorite books, etc.  Also, the class was allowed to ask me questions about Lucas.....sort of those embarrassing moment type of questions :).  
I love that his answer to someone he admires is "My dad".

It was so sweet, to see Lucas sitting in this chair receiving compliments from his classmates, sharing himself through answering their questions, and enjoying being in the spotlight.

Looking a little unsure about the letter he's about to read.  

Enjoying the compliments from the letter Derrick wrote him.
