Kobe's teacher sent home a paper for Parent Teacher conferences. Kobe's class had a sub for the first half of the year because his teacher was on maternity leave so we are just now doing parent teacher conferences. Which I like them better in the second half of the year. I feel there is more to go on.
So anyways.. Kobe's teacher called me (I prefer phone vs, face to face) Tuesday afternoon. She said he was doing EXCELLENT in his academics. She said he was doing above average and all around doing great. Said he has a 100% in Math.. I knew he would do good in that subject. He can do multiplication at the age of 6!! Math was my favorite subject. She said his behavior was great too. She said "He acts just like a 1st grade boy should" she said he's quiet and some what reserved..?? Not at home lol But I would rather he be that way at home than at school/public. She said he was very pleasant, friendly and outgoing (on the play ground). She thinks he's just doing great and has not a single complaint! :) I'm so happy to hear this. Especially when ppl who are around Kobe the most (e.g. family, friend, etc.) See the "rowdy","not gonna listen", "My friends are here so I'm gonna show off" Kobe. It proves he is NOT like that all the time.. He's an awesome kid.. He is so smart and funny and has the most tender heart ever. Yes he has a smart mouth on him sometimes but that's because he was raised that way. His uncle, my friends, and now his dad (Jason) and yes even his MOTHER.. me!.. has a sarcastic/smart ass attitude. not always TO him but always around him. You don't even think about it until you see your self in your child then think, crap! That was totally ME! Or for the most part I'm always saying its he's totally Adam or Jason. I call him Jason Jr. a lot or if he's acting up I'm constantly calling him Adam lol He acts just like him. So no wonder he acts that way lol.
Kobe's 2nd Report Card
Doing Homework while I wash dishes
Kobe has a love for God that is crazy strong. To be honest we don't go to church. I wasn't raised in a church going home and so its something that I'm not used to doing as a routine. We have talked about going to church but come Sunday mornings we either space it or don't set the alarm.
Jason had a book from when he was little from communion or something and Kobe LOVES it. He wanted one soo bad.. so I made a trip to our local Bible Store and picked up a few things. I got a book (on sale!!) that is bedtime bible stories. Its a short 1-2 page story about different bible stories with questions to be asked after the stories. Then for $0.49 each I got these little inspirational cards... But our FAVORITE that I purchased was for $0.99
He LOVES this!! He treasures it! Of all the things that he plays with and misplaces he has never misplaced this tiny bible! Isn't it CUTE!
We played The Game of Life the other night! Kobe begged me and begged me to play this. Finally we got it out and played.. He didn't need any help now that he can read. We had fun playing.. Even though Jason beat us both!
The other day we had spring-like temps so we took advantage of it lol. We had the windows open and played outside.. well the guys played outside I cleaned, blah... but once I was done.. While Kobe was riding his bike I sat by our open window and played "McDonalds" the little things like these is what makes the best of times!! I'm cherishing EVERY minute I have with my son while he's little.. He'll be 7 in little over 2 weeks *tear* that's almost to 10.. time needs to slow down!!!
My little Hunter(he wanted to pose for a pic)
I made a "Hunting Blind" for him to hunt out of (this is not his BB gun lol its a play gun)
Playing his Nintendo DS
My baby still wants to ride in the front of the cart from time to time lol
