truth, justice, and greg

I held my breath as I awaited Greg's Parent-Teacher Conference this year. First grade was a little bit of a bumpy ride for this guy.

But, thankfully, second grade has been going awesome!

Greg's teacher is a friend of mine from church and just about the smartest, sweetest lady ever. She told me that one day Greg jumped in the air to tap one of the flags hanging from the wall as they were filing out of the classroom.

She told him, "Greg, that means you'll have your name on the board when we get back."

Well, after they returned, she simply forgot. Greg came up to her after a bit and said, "Uhm, do you want me to put my own name on the board, or do you want to do it?"

ha. good for him.
my wonderful friend/mentor told me that one time she had to leave her third graders for just a moment and she told them that if they talked while she was gone, they were to write their own names on the board. yeah, right, you say. when she came back, the room was silent and three people had put their own names up. :)
