He got a character award!
The only character award for the whole class, in fact.
For "doing the right thing" every day in every way in all six Pillars of Character.
I could not be more proud. Seriously. I want him to do well in school. If he's smart, that's wonderful. But in my opinion there is nothing more important than character. The fact that he struggled in the beginning makes it even sweeter, because it means he had to really try to turn it around. It had to matter to him.
It's a good day!!
(except that he'll get to pick where he wants to go to dinner tonight, and there's a huge likelyhood that we'll be at McDonalds. yuck.)
But who cares. He's got character!!
