Report time

It's that time of year again - you know the report card/parent teacher interview time.....

This year has been an adjustment for all of us - we lost the greatest teacher in the entire universe and gained two more (one of which has a reputation for being a 'yeller' and not always friendly....) Grade one means full days of work and not nearly as much play time. Parent helpers and volunteers are not as welcomed or needed and I feel a little out of the loop. And this year the dreaded "awww, do I have to go to school?" has officially started. Needless to say we were a little anxious to get the report.

Now, I have strict orders from the husband that I am not allowed to brag like I did the last time....apparently I was a little too vocal about how much the teacher had to say the last 2 years.

So let me just say this; I HAVE THE GREATEST SON IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!!!!!!!!

Was that humble enough honey?

The grades were good. But the teachers comments were heartfelt and genuine -more than I thought they would be. And when they are telling Garnet and I how proud we should be to have such a great son, with great work ethic, and great enthusiasm. I was touched. But the best part was when they told us how kind he was.....because all the A+'s in the world won't create a kind heart. And knowing that his big heart is touching others makes my heart soar.
