Hi,
I just wanted to share with everyone that my son (1st grade) is the Star Student at his school. He's been struggling with reading, however his grades have been straight As'. He was recognized for all his hard work. He got to put a presentation together about himself, and wrote a poem. His school posted it, and I'm so proud of him. If you like to see it, click on the link below:

Thanks,
Brittay :)

Awww, how cute!!! Brave kid to lay on a bed of nails :p WTG Elijah!!!
Yes, at the Science Museum near our home they had the bed of nails. He has to lay flat on plexi glass and the nails slowly raise up. Its cool, I was afraid for him to do it. He was determined to try it though ;)

Good for him. I am so happy to hear this. I'm traveling and can't seem to load the page, but will try again tomorrow when I get home. Give him a big hug and kiss.

Not sure where in CA you are... that wouldn't be the Exploratorium, would it?

He loved it, he had to give this presentation in front of his peers (80 1st graders) and all the kids call him "Cool Elijah" now....LOL! :D

If that is not a self esteem booster, I don't know what is! ;D

Since this is the proud mommy thread, I can crow a bit. My daughter (a jr. in HS) just received a $500 scholarship to a two week summer art institute this summer. It actually covers 25% of the cost, so she is quite excited. We are too. Go Hannah!
