I don’t really have many to speak of, so I will regale you with one of Jacob’s…
He came home with a piece of paper on Monday Night…
"Congratulations Jacob S. You have qualified for Round 2 of our school Geography Bee!"
I didn’t even know they HAD such a thing, let alone that my child would be competing!
He is only one of 33 6th graders to make it to Round 2 (one of two in his homeroom!). He competes in Round 2 on Tuesday, January 4th. If he makes it through the next few rounds, he goes to STATE COMPETITION!!!
Say what again!?
Please, please, please cross your fingers that he does HIMSELF proud. If he only makes it to Round 2, I want him to be ok with that. (Yes, I want him to try his best, but this was a surprise boon, I don’t want him to put too much pressure on himself).
Needless to say, we are all WAY proud of him!
