The Boy

I can't begin to tell you how much my boy has grown this year. He may not have grown as tall as he would have liked...but he sure has grown up!! 

He started this year with a slightly beat-down attitude. He was a little negative and didn't feel that smart. Thanks to a supportive classroom teacher and a wonderful language arts teacher, things really turned around!  His reading and writing improved tremendously. But best of all, he knows he's smart. And talented. And funny. His attitude is great and he's so much fun to be around!

He has started talking like a grown up lately so I've written a couple of Finn quotes down...

"You know how you can sometimes define a person by a first impression?  Well. I don't want to be one of those people."

"These fries are completely compelling but MAN they are ridiculously HOT!!"

"I don't think I want this year to end. I've settled in quite comfortably. " 
"I love you mom. You're the best. Some kids just say that but I telleth the truth."

Who is this kid??? 

I'm so proud of my boy.
