Ava Grace's Closet: Fourth Grade Wonder

Fourth Grade Wonder

Someone is starting the fourth grade tomorrow.
Fourth.Grade.
Our Julian does well at school. Not super well but he is smarter than he let's on.
This we know. As has every teacher who has had the pleasure and sometime difficulty of teaching our boy.
He can be so challenging. 
Careless. Easily distracted. Even more easily frustrated.
Especially when he doesn't "get" something right away.
He is so hard on himself. 


This boy who is more proficient at most computer applications.downloads.set up's than are his father and I combined.
The same boy who notices things like an open door.gate.staircase, anything that could be potentially dangerous to his baby sister, before anyone.
And always finds a creative way to remedy the situation.
The boy who can fix anything.
Including a nightlight in my daughter's room that I just couldn't get to work.
He insisted on trying his hand at fixing it. He stared at it for like a minute -
And then, he made it work.
I still don't know how.


I always thought our boy might be loud like me. A go-getter like his father. A sports nut like every man in our family.
But he's not any of those things. Yet.
He beats to his own drum.
And one day, I am convinced this soon-to-be fourth grader will do BIG things.


I love you sweet boy.

  9. What a sweet post about your son. He sounds like a cool forth grader. I think kids who beat their own drums end up being cooler adults.
