Yep, that's right, I got a good report card. So, what do you have just sitting on a shelf or in a box that you loved when you bought it and haven't used for years?
Well, really Max got the report card, but it mentioned his parenting as a direct result of his success...so I figure I got an 'A' in parenting.
I had conferences to pick up the report card the other night and sure enough, my son is now an honor roll student. I can now proudly sport an annoying bumper sticker proclaiming to the world that my child now has B and higher grades! Yes!
I am so proud of my little guy. He has worked super hard for years to get to where he is and even his teacher made a point to tell me it was all him (and a little bit of me pushing him). Max has been in special ed since he was in preschool and to go from the school just shaking their heads not knowing if he would make it out of 2nd grade to the top of the class, is truly remarkable. And he did it at a brand new school where he actually had to "catch up" to the rest of the 5th grade.
His teacher told me that Max is his first student technically in special ed to make the honor roll in 5 years he has been at this school.
So, yes, I am super proud of my little guy!
Now planning which Ivy League College he will be getting a scholarship to.
Thanks to everyone for your great advice about the card situation. I guess I just fear that if I send it to someone who isn't crafty it will just validate their sense of "Oh, there she goes with paper and glue again" mentality.
The card may be off to someone very soon, so don't be disappointed it is not my fav, it was still made with love! Pure paper love.
The card today was made with SEI papers, I think it was called Aunt Gertie? I bought it a million years ago when I first started working at Archivers and couldn't resist buying something everytime I worked because of the incredible discount.
Well, I bought it.
And there it sat til about 2 days ago.
Yep, paper I bought at least 4 years ago.
Pull it out.
Let's see what you got and how old it is.
And what you can finally do with it.
So, what do you have just sitting on a shelf or in a box that you loved when you bought it and haven't used for years?
