Assembly

The Boy got his report card yesterday. He did quite well; the only real "problem area" if there is one is that he was noted in reading as "not performing up to potential." Of course, he's maxed out the reading tests for second grade, so his potential is quite high. Anyway, we talked to him abou that, and focused on the positives on his report card.

Today his school had an assembly to honor students who had perfect attendance, earned good behavior awards, and who made the honor role. I was fortunate enough to get to go and watch The Boy receive his award for perfect attendance (which, sadly, I won't win, and haven't done since fall of '87), and his award for making the honor roll (which I also won't be winning again any time soon).

Way to go, Boy!

Good job, my wonderful Grandson! We love you for your good heart and your kindness, for your beautiful smile, for the way you light up our lives just being alive. And we are proud of your accomplishments, too. What a great Kid!

Congrats to your son, Steve! You sound like (and should be) one happy Dad :-)

Sounds like a good kid. Just make sure he does "work to his potential". That's what they always said about me, I was always getting into trouble because I could ace everything without "working to my potential".

On the other hand, I had a lot of fun.

My daughter loves to read; my son doesn't. My son is a perfectly capable reader, it's just not where he puts his energy. His energy is saved for math and kickball. I bet your second grader is exactly the same as mine. Not everyone has to be a reader. We readers usually sit around and accomplish very little.

I know that "the boy" is an outstanding reader. I remember him reading to me when he was 4 yrs old. He loves to read. He also loves to do math and anything else that taxes the mind. I think living "up to your potential" is relative.
