Thing One stomped into my office at work, grinning from ear-to-ear, singing "I am the champion".
Seems he took first place in his class Geography Bee and will be advancing to the next round, all of 7th grade.
Ok, I admit, I did ask if this was his reg. class or his special ed classmates. (bad mommy, I know) and I am proud to report that it was his reg. class that he competed against.
So, we celebrated with dinner and a trip to the bookstore...where his interest in academics proved short lasted as he picked out a Pokemon book.
Oh well, there is always tomorrow.
