Will Graduates!!

OK, it’s only kindergarten, but still pretty cool.  Because we adopted Will when he was 4, and he was in an orphanage his whole life, he was really behind the other kids on language and other skills.  In January we had a meeting with his teacher, who warned us that she might have to hold him back.  Well, with the help of one-on-one tutoring, he progressed just enough to move on.  This way he avoids having to be in the same class with Anna, who I think is already ahead of him as far as academics goes.

    June 19th, 2010 00:37 Thanks Nicki! Hey Michelle, I was constantly in the principle’s office in 4th grade. I think the only reason they didn’t hold me back was because the teacher didn’t want to have to deal with me for another year ;)
