Today's meme, hosted by The Life of Rylie... And Bryce, too! and Angelica's Awesome Adventures, was definitely needed. It's been a rough few days, and it's time to focus on something good.
What is my something good for this week? School is going great as we wind up the school year!
Amber got a B on her spelling test she brought home yesterday. She has been struggling with spelling this year, and a B is pretty good for her. She also feels confident about this week's words. The thing with Amber is that things will come to her on a schedule that no one else knows. Her teacher was worried about her spelling skills, but I knew she would catch on eventually.
Andrea got an A on her science fair project. She was disappointed that she didn't win a prize at the science fair itself, and I was quite surprised at the low score the judges gave her, but she got the points she needed to get an A in the grade book. To be honest, that's the more important part to me. The judges are just parents and community members, so their judging may not take into account what the teacher taught. By getting an A, I know that Andrea learned the concepts the teacher found to be important.
I am so proud of both of my girls when it comes to school. They are not straight A students, and Amber can be a bit of a trouble-maker, but they both talk about concepts they've learned and seem to be really growing. Amber's reading took off this year, and Andrea has found a love for science. I am looking forward to doing projects with them this summer to continue the learning until they get back to school to soak up more knowledge.
