Something Good About School

I haven't written much lately, and I think it is in part because of my inner conflict about Wylie's school situation.  I don't feel great about it, but I struggle to find the words to say exactly how I do feel.  It isn't terrible, but it isn't what I want for my kid either.

I could go on and on, and still not be clear about all that I'm feeling.  But, what I really want to say is this--

There are a few good things about Wylie experimenting in school this semester, and here's one of them:

 Last week he received, at an assembly in front of the school (along with one other child from each class) a "star" from his teacher, thanking him for being such a kind person.  Its always great to know that your kids is being appreciated.

"Its my blog and I'll brag if I want to..."
(to be sung to the tune of "its my party"-- you know how it goes)


  1. Great job Wylie! And you should definitely brag.

  2. Definitely worth bragging about! External gratification: both a plus and a minus, in my opinion. It's nice to be appreciated, but it's not nice to need that appreciation to feel good about yourself.


I love hearing from you!
