We're over the hump. . . .

I just wanted to give a shout out about progress reports. . . . . . . . . all you Mother's out there know you can usually tell right away what the status of your child's progress report is. If it's good they offer it up to you the minute they get in the car. If it's bad well that's when either the stalling or the excuses start. You know the ones, "I didn't get it.", "The teacher didn't figure in all of my grades.", etc.. Well, the other day I started my afternoon bus schedule at my 11 year-old step-daughter's school. The minute I saw her she was shoving her progress report in my face. Let me give you a little background. Of the four school-age kids, Brenna really has to work the hardest. It just hasn't clicked yet with math. She usually has a couple of below average grades that we have to have the regular "talk" about. After she was so energetic about giving me her progress report I have to say my interest was peeked. Much to my great pride when I opened her progress report she only had 1 C, and it wasn't even in Math! The rest were A's and B's. So I just wanted to brag on her and say Great job!! Way to go Brenna!!
