I saw all the kids with the little envelopes, some where pulling out the papers inside, others just holding them protectively. I recognized what they were, it was report card time again.
I wasn't too worried as I knew Lucas had been doing well. I pulled out his report card and was very happy with what I saw. Lots of O's for outstanding, a couple of G's for good and lots and lots of + for doing great. There were several areas where last trimester he had only gotten checks that were now + signs. They also did a standardize math test- starting at 80% it was considered advanced- Lucas got 100%, his teacher even wrote "wow"next to his score. I was so happy.
Later that night Eric talked to Lucas about how proud he was and asked him if he knew why he should do good in school?
"Yes, because if I do good and am nice, then people will be happy and I will have friends and feel good inside."
"Yes, that is good, but not quite what I meant."
Eric then talked with him about college and what a good education can get you.
I am proud of a son who does well in school and a husband who helps teach the importance of a good education.
