Colin made honor roll, and Nate would have as well if only they had honor roll for 3rd graders. Both boys are doing extremely well academically and are fitting in with their classmates just fine.
We had no behavioral problems to discuss, and while both boys do have weaknesses, they are nothing that can't be worked on and overcome with a bit more effort. (And, really, how much of a weakness can it be if both boys exceeded expectations and earned mostly A's with only a smatter of B's?) Colin is still a bit of a class clown. Nate is quiet and studious, but kind and helpful as well.
I have serious concerns about Nate's speech, but that's for another post (did you know Friday is International Stuttering Awareness Day? It is, and I have a good post planned about stuttering, so please come back!)
For this former homeschool mom, who worried about this school year, I am especially proud of my boys. They have made the effort and have adjusted wonderfully. They went into the year with a solid grounding, but of course we wouldn't be sure of that until the grades were in. I did just fine as their teacher, and they are exceptional students.
I miss spending my days with them, though!
