Both kiddos have grown mentally by leaps-and-bounds this year. Both of their teachers have challanged and pushed them out of their comfort zones - which is where you learn and change.
Jaxson's class had their poetry reading day. They wrote their own poems and then read them in front of friends, family, peers, etc. Proud beyond words to see him get up and do this - and actually enjoy it. The kid has a creative side that is just begging to come out.
