Remember how worried I was at the beginning of the year about Katie and her forgotten school work?
Well. I am super dooper happy to report that she got her second report card yesterday and she is doing fantastic.
Last semester she had three '2's'. A two is like a B-. At least that's how I looked at it.
Yesterday her report card showed that she brought all of those two's to ones.
Hip Hip. Hooray!
I can't say she go all ones. She had one two in Technology. We think the teacher is tough. She thinks you have to be uber outstanding to get an A/1, and that's okay by me.
I am just so happy that Katie has gotten into the habit of writing her assignments down, getting her assignments initialed by her teachers and even remembering to bring the correct books home.
Our little scheme worked. She is learning to be more organized and this is leading to better grades.
Thank you so much for your support and advise!!!

If a man is called a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and Earth will pause to say, Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Have a wonderful weekend!
We are sure to have an extra fun one. Emma is coming home and we have a basketball game tomorrow.
AND I get to visit with Lynn.
