At least that is what I thought until he received various awards tonight as well. He received:
- The Grant Arthur Trophy for Academic success, fine
sportsmanship, good spirit and leadership
- Cunton Cohen Trophy Cricketer of the Year
- Certificate for Conscientiousness and Diligence

My kids always find the humor in everything. Love them to bits!
