An Unabashed Brag or Two
School pictures are a total wild card. You never know if your kids' photos will come back with them looking like super models or short-bus students. (Okay, that was naughty, insensitive and sooooo politically incorrect for a school psychologist but I just couldn't resist.) This year Kenna and Todd looked pretty darn good in theirs. Maybe not like super models but possibly good enough for the JC Penny catalog, or at least ShopKo ad.
I went to Parent-Teacher conferences for both children today.
Todd's meeting was short. We ended up talking a lot about my job because the teacher had nothing but crazy high scores and good behavior to report. I'm certain that his grades will stay high but I'm praying that his attitude and classroom actions will remain positive.
Kenna's meeting was equally glowing but took a little longer because her teacher was trying to convince me to enroll her in the district's gifted program. I have no concerns that her smiley face will stay glued all year. She loves school and seems to be comfortable around lots of different friends.
Okay, I'm finished (and blushing). I love these kids through the good and the bad but I sleep a little easier during the good.
