Bragging Rights

I'm still feeling lousy and terribly uncomfortable waiting for this baby to come out, but my 1st grader came home and brought us a present. It not only made me almost forget about how I was feeling, but I was walking in clouds for a little bit until I felt a slight contraction.

For the second quarter in a row he has made it to honor roll and we are just so damn proud of him. The curriculum in his school is quite tough and he works very hard doing 2 hours of homework at almost every night. Since it is a Chinese School, the school has an extensive mandatory Mandarin and Cantonese language (reading and writing) program throughout the whole elementary years starting from preschool (oh - and as well as some Spanish too). For the most part, we can't even help him with homeworks in Mandarin since both my husband and I don't know anything about it. My husband helps a little bit in Cantonese because that is his native language, but can only recognize the very basics. But even so, my son manages to do so well.

We are so proud of our boy!
