My Pride and Joy!
AJ gave us good news tonight. She got an award and her picture was posted on their kindness wall. She said she's one of their “student of the month” (from her class). I just can't wipe-off my smile. =) Shouldn't she be happy? Not exactly. Today, she also received the electives she’s enrolled for the 3rd and 4th quarter. She saw chess as one of them. Apparently, she’s not happy about this. =( Last week when the elective enrollment registration came, we chose something fun for her like dancing and art. But her teacher gave her another elective for AG students (AG is for academically gifted students if you're not familiar). Boy! She's not happy at all! She already belongs to their Math group which is also for AG students (teacher H picked this for her too). She has told us before that this class can be hard at times. She also plays the violin as another of her electives. But she loves this one. Her Dad and I are very proud. And as much as possible, we want her to be happy too so she will continue to do her best in school. We don't want to force her into anything she's not happy about because we want her to learn and enjoy at the same time and not be worried or stressing about anything. Okay, it's not our style to IMPOSE on her. So if she doesn't like it, we let her be. I just hope she’ll give CHESS a try and just do her best. Good luck my Baby doll! Don't worry. Your teacher knows better. Muah!!! Yes, I'm mighty proud! Another joy of being a Mom.
