If you're so smart, how come you ain't rich??

McGwire's first report card came out last week. I had to show his grandparents how well he's doing (everybody else can just roll your eyes and groan). He is such a smart boy and we are very proud of him. He is even doing well in behavior which has never been his strong point. Just to clarify A=A, B=B, and basically E=A, S=B. I have no idea why they don't have just one grading system. That's Georgia's schools for ya.

Also McG's had his first big project of the year: The Solar System mobile. I put Tim in charge of helping him since I have mental scars from my childhood "solar system project". I do everything else around the house, so I figure Tim can help out with this kinda stuff. Tim went the smart route and purchased a kit from the craft store. McG painted it, put it all together and labled it all by himself. He did an excellent job. I was a little nervous at first having McG turn in a store bought project and then I got a LOT nervous whenever he told me that everyone else's in the class was made out of foam or clay. I just knew he would fail...but he got an A+!!!! YAY!!!.... and whew!!
