So, half of 6th grade is over. 18 weeks ended last week. Yesterday school was closed for marking of grades. And as of today she has straight A’s for the second 9 weeks. Besides chorus, her highest mark is in science. Until about 10 days ago it was a 99. Then she had one wacky quiz where she spaced out and she ended up the quarter with a 97%. HA.
She definitely gets her smarts from her mother more than me. I’m good at this level of math. I will bow out of math help when she gets to geometry and trig. I always did well at basic math, fractions, decimals, algebra, etc. It is when you get to the other upper math that I flail.
Science I did fair to good in. Social studies, great. Choir great. Art I sucked in. Language arts I did well in. Just high level math and chemistry did not agree with me. Thus why I think I didn’t ever try to go to medical school or anything like that. If I could not master chemistry I didn’t need to be trying to be a doctor.
But, the point is that I cannot believe 1-she is blowing away these grades. 2-she is halfway done with the first year of middle school. Summer break is 4.5 months away. Then she will be in summer camp. As a junior counselor. UGH. I realize too that I’ve got 1.5 years left until the middle one starts school. NOT READY FOR THAT!!!!
But at this point, I am so proud of how far my oldest has come. At the potential she holds and the intelligence she has harnessed in that brain of hers. I couldn’t be prouder.
I LOVE MY WIFE AND I LOVE MY KIDS!!!
