Peace out, 4th grade!

I made B's teacher a "summer kit" to say thanks for totally getting him and being the most patient ever. Just a few necessities: fun beach towel, shades (that I am a little jealous of), straws for poolside libations and a magazine. We love Ms. Perkins, yes we do.

Some fun end of the year facts/mom-braggin': B grew 4 inches and 11 lbs in the course of this school year, he tormented his poor music teacher long enough to almost get banned from music class (it's true) but made a miraculous turnaround in the last six weeks and ended up with a Satisfactory - we'll take it! - he was one of the few students to get an award for turning in homework like a champ, he had about a billion tardies because his mom sucks at mornings, he matched the school record for sit ups and quadrupled his own record for push ups in P.E., he got the highest scores possible on all of his gifted and talented projects, he was given a fake reading level because he reads at a higher level than they have in place for elementary school, and... HE ENDED THE YEAR ON THE A-HONOR ROLL. Ce-le-brate good times, come on!

Next year we'll be at a new school and working on Operation: Booker T. (Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts), which is exactly what it sounds like. B has set his sights on getting into a performing arts high school, so we're going to try to help him. If I can convince him to replace more video game time with piano time, that might actually happen. For now, bring on the summer!
