Mother's Day at school

This morning the Moms at Brookston's school were invited for breakfast. In addition to breakfast we received a little flower arrangement, and some homemade cards along with a printed card of "one thing I love about my Mom" and "How much I love my Mom". Brookston's responses:
One thing I love about my Mom:
Making cakes together
How much I love my Mom:
8 long

Ms. Katie (his teacher) explained to me the "8 long" came from his showing Ms. Katie how he loved me "this much", as he stretched his arms out from end to end. Ms. Katie asked if he could put it into words, so he went up one arm and down the other...1(fingers), 2 (wrist), 3 (elbow), 4 (shoulder), then down the other arm. So he decided that was 8 long! Love it!!!

Okay, this is an email from my phone, let see if it will post my picture??
