LilZ got his report card yesterday and the lowest grade on it was an 88! Woo Hoo! I didn’t go into the details last year, but we struggled with our grades in fourth grade and I was INCREDIBLY stressed about it. I tried everything from grounding him to beating him. (kidding). It was just a rough year for both of us but I kept it out of the blog because I didn’t want to upset him MORE than he already was about it. He is INCREDIBLY smart (don’t all parents say that?), but he tends to lack motivation and he REALLY likes to do things quickly. In which case he finishes them FIRST and does them WRONG.
This year? With the new school and new friends? Ones who motivate him to compete for good grades (who doesn’t love a bit of competition) and he is doing GREAT. These were the best grades he’s had in AGES and I couldn’t gush more about him.
(Okay, that’s enough for my parental bragging for the day.)
Here are your token pictures of the dogs that I know you were waiting for. Sitting there…wondering, “Hmm…do Zoot’s dogs still look the same as they did YESTERDAY? Have they changed?”
No. They have not.
