Hooray for CJ!

Today is the last day of school for my kids.
CJ had an award ceremony yesterday, and won "Most Improved Student".
He has had a rough year and has worked really, really hard to do well.
It wasn't a matter of intelligence, everyone agreed he was well and above smart enough. It was more a problem with focus.
This is an issue we have worked with him on for the last few years.
After all our best efforts I finally took him to the doctor.
Now he takes one little blue pill every morning and voila! instant success!
He recognizes the difference as much as anyone and is very proud of himself.
But we are very proud of him too.
And I can send him to middle school next year with confidence that he will do well there too.
Hooray for CJ!
