I Am a very Proud Mom....



To follow up on my post regarding Aaron and his problems with school...take a look at this!!!! His first report card this year.
You have to click on the picture to see it larger....go ahead, click...I will wait.

What do you think? We went from pretty much all F's last year...struggles, heartbreak, etc....but we got through it. Aaron is doing wonderful...I could not be more proud, because I honestly thought at one point last year, that I would never see such a wonderful sight!

We took him out for dinner last night, to Bruno's pizza....a favorite of Aaron's, to celebrate a sucessful first nine weeks of school. He was just glowing. Before I left for his parent/teacher conference yesterday afternoon, he told me, "You will be so surprised to see my report card Mom"...I said, "Why is that?"...he replied, "I can't tell ya, but just know you are going to be surprised".....His teacher was so full of praise for him, that he has adjusted well this year, seems to have a lot of friends...joy to have in the classroom...also, from a little boy that had no interest in reading last year....He is in the top 13% in school for his reading, and has been placed into the acclerated reading program!

One of Aaron's favorite past times is to draw.....he loves to draw and create beautiful artwork...I have always thought that he had a special talent for it...but his teacher confirmed it. She said he has a "special gift" for it, that in her 25 years of teaching, she has never seen a child with so much talent...that I need to enroll him in an art program of some sort, because he could truly go somewhere with his talent!
Wow...that is all I can say....just wow! I plan on calling the local art museum to check into any childrens programs that may be offered. Who knows..maybe this is his calling in life...


Anyway I just wanted to share....

Have a good one....

That's great! I'm wondering if it's the age. We went through the same thing with my daughter for the past few years. All of a sudden this year we're back at all A's! And she'll be 13 in December.
