Mama's Bragging

At the risk of sounding like the mom that always brags on her kids, I have to gush today. My kids got their report cards this week and I couldn't be more proud!

Headless Boy #1 got 6 A's and one B, and for the second time has made High Honor Roll. His teacher said he was "dependable", and his reading level is above 7th grade. How cool is that?

As for Headless Boy #2, he went up in 5 areas (they don't get A's and B's yet,) and in the Citizenship and Study Habits area he got all "Outstanding" marks, (there are 10 subcategories.) His teacher said that he is "assertive and smart," "gracious," and "You are quite the scholar and the gentleman, " and if that wasn't enough also said "It has been a joy to do your report card this trimester!" I think she likes him, don't you?

(This is quite a victory for #2...do you remember the mess at the end of the last school year? And the update afterward?)

My girl? Yeah, she made Dean's List at her college and is thriving at her new school. Currently on a spring break mission trip, she's rockin' the college thing now after a stinky first year. (Which I can relate to, but that is a post for another day.)

Yep, I'm a proud mama today!

Brag! Do it! It's so much fun, isn't it? And to think they did all that without heads...

I think we can never brag on our kids too much. They hear our criticisms much louder than the praises so praise away! Plus it's validating to us as the mamas that they do really get it!

That is so awesome, you should be extremely proud. So happy that HG changed schools. Dean's list, that is wonderful.
