She really tries

Report Card day was yesterday!

Nothing like dragging your stomach-churning, back-aching body to meet with the first grade teacher for the first official report card meeting. Good times.

Actually, it went very well. Grades were a little all over the place - but as I recall my first grade world consisted of 1, 2, 3 in which case I was usually 1's across the board because that encompassed A through B- pretty much. But without a D or F on her card, I was pretty happy.

Plus, it's FIRST GRADE. I need to shout that to remind myself. She won't be denied college entrance because of her first grade grades --- right?

I learned some great things about my daughter. She likes structure and plans. If she's not clear on what the expectations are or what is happening next she gets a little off track. NO IDEA where that comes from. *cough*

She tries. She really tries. Which means more to me than anything. However, and there is always a however, she is a very social girl.

Hmm. Really? Like social as in polite-to-everyone-and-a-bit-outgoing or dancing-on- the-desktop-happy-hour social? The teacher said it's a good thing, so I won't worry, yet.

I still think that teacher is insane for being so tough on 1st graders. That spelling list where she marked one word as wrong was ridiculous. A. is a smart, sweet little girl, and hopefully her next teacher will ease up a bit. And no, first grade doesn't count a lick for college! ; )
