At around noon I received a text from one of his teachers with this photo attached. The message said, "Thomas is keeping us up-to-date on the score. Rock Chalk."
Notice he's wearing his coat and there are kids outside - you can see their hands pressed against the window. He had chosen to forego outside time to stand on a chair with his ear pressed to a radio to listen to the game while a teacher cleaned up after lunch.
What a great school for letting him do this; it was important to him. What a great teacher for capturing a picture; she didn't have to do that.
What a great kid.
