Proud Mommy Moments-Academics





It's time for Proud Mommy Moments with EmmyMom and KMama and have I got some proud moments to brag about share with you.

Let's start with my Little Middle...Emily.  Miss Em as we often call her struggles so much in school but she is fierce and she works hard.  And she has a team of people working with her.  And it has paid off because she has leveled up in the state testing.  Yeah those horrible state tests that the kids take every year.  I hate those!  But she was among the highest scoring in her class!!  Woot!  Go Emily!  Well she got an award for her achievements!  Go girl!  See!  Hard work does pay.  You can do it!  We are so proud of our fierce girl.






But that is not all....

I have one more....

I had a parent teacher conference earlier this week with Ryan's teacher.  I went in knowing that there would be lots of talk about his behavior.  It was absolutely hilarious because she was actually apologizing to me because she knows he is not a bad kid.  We talked about his stress issues and anxieties and about how he just gets super busy.  Hehe.  We talked about some ideas to help him improve.  And since our talk he has had better days.  But that is not the brag...no...the brag is this....are you ready???  Ryan is in the first grade...age 6--he is also one of the youngest in his class--I have to make this brag really count!  First graders should be able to read 35 words per minute.  Ryan can read 71.  Yep!  71!  I almost fell off my chair when she told me that.  She also told me he is top of the class academically.  Yeah I was proud.  I am proud of both my babies!
