What can I say?
He is a people pleasing personality just like his dear mom. He is totally in awe of his daddy, just like his dear mom. He is a fearful one, a worrier, and just a tad selfish, just like his dear mom.
Now as for the stubborn, energetic, can't sit still, "don't want to miss a thing," with just a little temper, that part of his personality, is ALL JUST LIKE DEAR DAD!!!
And then there is his intelligence... God just worked a miracle in there and graced us with two smart kiddos. WOW! I think the good Lord knew I would be NO help with the homework! Did I tell you about the time I had to Google to help Kayla with her math... There is a reason this mom doesn't home school! (Although I admire and envy all of you who do!!!)
Anyway, Jorboy got his grades tonight and dear mom here, is very proud! He came in the house all worried because he did get a "B" this time, but I quickly told him that he had nothing to be ashamed of. He made an 89% in Math. One point from an "A." We even know why... there was one test that did him in. That one test brought his grade down, and Jordan is not too happy about it. How much you want to bet he tries even harder in math the next few weeks? He is harder on himself than I ever could be.
Here are his grades:
Spelling = 98
Language Arts = 96
Reading = 97
Mathematics = 89
Science = 97
I am so proud of my little boy! (He hates it when I call him "little.")
Did I tell you that he can also frustrate me to no end? You see, Jordan is too much like me. The traits he does share with dad are sometimes the traits that frustrate me about "dad" too, so there you have it! He can argue the life out of any situation. And sometimes he will not "argue" and just do things "his way." UGH! That boy!!!
Last year I blogged about how he didn't tell me it was school picture day, so I had absolutely no idea what he looked like. Although I was mad that he didn't tell me anything, it turned out to be one of his best school pictures EVER!
Isn't he adorable! I just love him to pieces!!!
Sorry, got a little off track... fast forward to this year. I KNEW about pictures this year, had the cute sweater picked out and everything. Then I get this...
Hello?!!! Where is the cute brown sweater?
"I didn't want to wear it."
"OK, but WHY are you wearing a pullover?!!!"
"Because I wasn't wearing a nice shirt under it."
And there you have it people. When stubbornness mixes with all boy, the outcome is a pullover.
But, once again, he made a really cute picture...
"But a pullover?!!! REALLY?!!!"
I still forked over the forty bucks.
Hey, at least his hair was combed!!!
Gotta love that kid!!!
