Son #1 (5th grade) managed to squeak onto the Honor Roll again. His final Reading grade was a low B. But a B is a B and not a C!
Son #2 (3rd grade) got a little lazy this past quarter and got kicked off the Principle's List ... but hey, the Honor Roll is an accomplishment.
Both are looking for their payouts according to the grades contract we signed at the beginning of the school year. I'm considering sweetening the deal just slightly to ward off any impending laziness as we head toward the last half of the school year.
I am thankful they are doing so well in school and I hope it continues as the curriculum becomes more challenging with each passing school year. So far, so good.
