The importance of being young

My son finished Kindergarten today. Yes, he's turning into a first-grader. I'm rather proud of him; the teacher more or less said he's one of the two top students in the class, and one of the three top kindergarteners in the school. (Proud father moment)

We always knew he was smart, so it's no surprise to us that he did well; but what we're most pleased with is how much he enjoys trying to teach other kids. He wants so badly for his (3 year old) sister to learn to read that he's been working with her with phonics. Makes us very proud.

Good Job, Son!

Aww, that's wonderful. I was so proud of my daughter in her first year of school, another little girl had ants in her lunch so my daughter gave her hers :)
