30 days of Gratitude…Days 8 & 9

09 Nov

Oops. I totally thought I posted yesterday.

Day 8:: Today I am totally grateful that my son is finally doing well in school. I don’t think he learned a single thing in the past 3 years of his schooling. Elementary school just wasn’t his thing. Middle School, well, I think he is held way more accountable, and I think he made a decision to change, and saw how his behavior really affected who he was. The trimester ends today, and as of right now, his grades are 4 A-, 1 A, 1 B and 1 B-. For a kid who has received F’s and D’s on almost everything the last few years, well this is HUGE. I am very grateful for whatever change has happened.


Day 9:: Today I am grateful for a morning off, my pot of tea, and the internet. I love to look at beautiful things, and am spending my morning doing so. Add in a little cleaning and crafting, and it can’t get any better.

    I’m so glad to hear how well Brandon is doing. Dylan wants to play the violin too. Did you do lessons, or just Orchestra?

      We just chose Orchestra. No lessons. He likes it! If he continues, we may do lessons.
