I know he gets his sassy pants from me, and his fancy pants are definitely from Jason, but I'm not sure where in the world he gets his smarty pants from.
(All the grandparents will be happy to claim passing down that gene.)
JR got a letter yesterday that he was accepted in to the National Junior Honor Society at his school.
He had to have a 93 overall GPA for the year just to apply, and then he had to list all his extra- curriculars. (Which, being my child, we know he has plenty of those.)
I put JR in charge of his own grades this year. He was responsible for looking at his grades online and making sure they were where they needed to be. It was so freeing for me not to be checking on him (I never looked at his grades until he brought me his report cards each 9 weeks). I wanted him to want this, and earn it on his own.
We are all very proud and looking forward to his induction in a few weeks.
