You all may remember my previous posts about my son not being able to ride a bike and being concerned about his grades, well I have excellent news...!
Last week in PE, third through fifth graders started bike riding. The kids that couldn't ride are in a group and the riders are in another group. They started on Wednesday and my son started out on a bike without pedals in order to learn how to push off and balance. He was absent on Thursday (not feeling well) and then on Friday...he became a RIDER...woo hoo! He learned in ONE day and was so excited. I picked him up from school (because I played hookey from work) and he couldn't wait to get home and show me (I need to take a pic and post it).
On to the other good news...Tuesday was report card day and my child brought home 4 B's and a C! It's not the Honor Roll but I am SO proud of him. He worked super hard to pull his grades up and I can actually see that he's learning. He said next time he definitely wants Honor Roll or even Principal's List.
Just had to share the awesomeness that is my son.
