5th Grade Gavin

So, the kids got their school pictures back. Gavin came home very excited. He said, "Mom, you are going to LOVE my new pictures!" I opened his backpack with great anticipation and when I pulled out his pictures packet, I was speechless. "Wow," I said, "You are such a good looking kid!" Then I quickly changed the subject. Admittedly, I was hoping for a bigger smile, the same beaming one from last year's pictures.
The next morning, I tactfully approached the subject and asked if he was sure he didn't want re-takes. We approached his previous picture sitting on the shelf. I pointed out the big smile in last year's photo. I commented on how happy and excited he looked. He then began to enlighten me. "Mom...that was last year. That was Fourth-Grade Gavin." Proudly holding up his new pictures, he said, "This is Fifth-Grade Gavin."

Needless to say, we are keeping the pictures and you will find written on the back of every, single one, the title, "5th Grade Gavin".

You know, I read through my little commentary this morning and thought maybe I made it sound like I didn't like his photo. He's still a cutie to me, but if you looked at last year's picture compared to this year's, it might paint a better picture. Either way, he made me laugh...again!

I love his picture! He's a great looking fifth grader. His little dimple and twinkling eyes are great. I wish my fifth grade picture looked as good as his. I think I had teeth pointing every which way!

Pretty sure I love that boy! I wonder what "Sixth Grade Gavin" will bring!
