I want to take one minute to congratulate my son.

He is rockin' the 6th grade this year! I just checked his grades online (the report card comes home next week) and he has -- get this:

2 As
2 Bs
1 C

This from a kid that averaged an 11 in Math most of last year!

I cannot begin to tell you - or him - how proud I am of him. He is working soooo hard to get through this year. I think being the oldest in his grade (he has ALWAYS been the smallest and youngest) has helped, plus he is familiar with the material. He heard it all last year, but didn't actually do any work.

I'm not saying it has been easy. We've been moving forward and have had a few setbacks, but the difference between this year and last year is amazing. His teachers are wonderful and helpful - heck one has already sent me the work for next week and he isn't even back in school yet!

Keep your fingers crossed that this continues. I cannot wait to get home this evening so I can hug the stuffing out of that kid... and watch his face light up when I tell him his grades.

My Dad use to tell me that the only place that "success comes before work is in the dictionary." It took me, like J-Man, a few bad experiences of struggling in grade school to learn that lesson, but when I finally got it I "Got it." J-Man has now tasted sweet sucess and I'm betting he'll build on it.
Congratulations, young man.
