This week the two older boys have brought home their interim report cards. The lower grades, K-2, don't have interims much less letter grades, so max and Rebecca are off the hook.
Nate is doing well and is holding steady with A's and B's. Jake too has been doing well in Middle School so far, his past two report cards were also A's and B's. But this time he really shined, so far he is getting straight A's, including PE.
What is particularly remarkable about this feat is that Jake is in all Honors level classes. He has always been very bright, but up until now he has not been very focused. I think the Honors level classes are to his liking and engage him far more than the classes he has taken before.
This is the first time any of our kids have done this and Larry and I are thinking of giving Jake some sort of treat. Maybe a a little one on one time with the parent of his choice. I don't know what it'll be, but he deserves something.
