A Celebration!!!!!!!



It started out as an ordinary day. Marissa called me at work after school today and wanted to read me her grades from her progress report. She started listing..... Language Arts (93),Reading (94),Science (100), Social Studies (95)....but I noticed that Math was left until last.. She has been struggling a little bit in math, in fact her math grade has been in the high 80's this school year, which is very good, not complaining about that at all, but it did keep her from making High Honor Roll for the first tine EVER, since kindergarten started. We have always told her to do her best and we will be thrilled with that. If a "C" is your best, we will rejoice over a "C". So, I think the not making High Honor Roll thing was a little bit bigger deal to her than it was to us. It had to be frustrating though; and just a few teensy points keeping her from making it ! Well, the progress report today lists her math grade at 92. WOO HOO! That's HIGH HONOR ROLL baby! We were so proud that we wanted to go out to eat tonight to celebrate and I let Risa pick the restaurant. She chose the Super Buffet and we were delighted that Debbie and Jennifer could join us!!!! (By the way did you know you could eat ice cram with chop sticks????) It was a good day tater.....
