This week marked the first report card that Ellie received. She came home on Monday and the first thing she said to me was, “Dad, my report card is in my backpack.” So, I pulled the report card out of her backpack and starting through the 5 page document. It wasn’t written with As and Bs and Cs, etc. It was instead written using 1s, 2s, and 3s and some other stuff. After deciphering things, I quickly realized that Ellie had received the equivalent of straight As. Whahoo!
When I explained to Ellie that her report card was perfect, she quickly shook her fists in the air and cheered. She was genuinely pleased to learn that she had done so well. And, she almost immediately turned to her brother and congratulated him for doing so well when they play school and Ellie is the teacher.
What terrific kids we have.
