I just got an email of difficult child 2's grades. So far he is doing SO much better than last year. He has all A's except for one D+ in Science. He is missing one assignment in that class and as soon as he makes it up the grade will go back up. He has an A+ in reading. He has been completing all of his reading logs and turning them in. I am so proud of him! What a difference between this year and last year. Last year he constantly had F's in Science and Social Studies and barely pulling C's in his other classes. Looks like we are getting off to a great start this year. Both of his main teachers say he is a joy to have in class (never thought I'd hear that coming from a teacher) and one of them says he is eager to learn. Last year all he did was stare off into space while biting his nails. He was completely unmotivated This year his teachers are saying that he is very focused and tries hard. I am relieved. God bless Focalin! Hopefully this continues. Dare I be hopeful?
