I am a glowing mother this morning. I just got a excited phone call from my son's 3rd grade teacher. I don't know which of us were more excited lol.
My little bee has now ranked in the top 5 of his school in the spelling bee, he goes on to compete more Monday...I am so excited I can hardly wait for him to get home and tell me all about it. I have to act surprised, because she wants him to tell me. I was cracking up, I am so thrilled that he has such a wonderful teacher that she could hardly contain herself and had to call me in the middle of the day.
Thats what makes a great teacher, someone who is always on top of things with her students. What really made me smile is the fact that she went on to say how proud she was of him and how excited she was to have him in her class this year and that he has been such a joy. She would like to keep in touch with him as he goes on to the other schools which he will be next year. I remember at conferences she told me He is one of those kids you want to watch throughout your school years and follow what they will become later in life. Me too, I can only imagine what great things he will do. Right now he has settled on the idea of being an arachnologist. I think thats pretty cool.
I am amazed more and more by him every day. Just when I think I can relax he shocks me with something new. I guess when he was a baby and I told him he could do whatever he wanted to and succeed, he took it literally lol.
Just wanted to share my excitement with all of my wonderful friends.
