With my posts last week about C, I have to turn it around this morning and tell you that I am so proud of him!
You knew it was gonna happen at some point, right?
We'd been studying together for a health/science test that he had to take on Thursday last week. It was a unit about keeping your teeth healthy and eating healthy foods. He got a bit annoyed with me when I had him recite the four types of teeth and the 5 food groups FIVE TIMES EACH.
Oh, the horror.
But I am thrilled to tell you that it paid off with a score of 100%! He was so excited!
And the other boy? Amazing. He's involved in his first year of the teen quiz program through our denomination. I had warned him that sometimes the transition from children's quizzing to teen quizzing is tough- it works completely differently. He was okay with that and wanted to give it a try anyway.
Well, he missed the first meet of the year last month with all that Influenza type A mess that we had to endure. But he was ready for the meet this past Saturday. Even though he huffed and puffed at me several nights last week when I told him to go study rather than take in a cartoon marathon.
Again, the HORROR!
But he found that all the studying paid off. Imagine that. He ended up taking third place in the rookie division and brought home a shiny new medal as proof! Woohoo!
And the best part? Neither one of them burst into flames.
