Nothing is Impossible

Jonathon is growing up before my eyes and I love to watch him challenge himself.  He moved to a new school this year.  He's now the youngest grade on the bus versus the oldest and with the move to fifth grade comes new opportunities.  Opportunities to try new actitivies, opportunities to excel in school, opportunities to make new friends...so many wonderful opportunities.  And he's taking advantage of them.

This year he set a goal for himself that he wants to get into advanced placement math and thankfully we live in a school district that has the resources to provide him with extra work to reach this goal.  In addition to challenging himself at school, he's trying so many other new things:  runner's club, student council and a babysitting course (he realizes he can make money babysitting :)!)  I am so proud of all that he is trying both academically and socially and I want him to know "Nothing is Impossible".   Most of all I'm proud that he is such a kind, hard working , loving boy.  So this little note will be tucked in his backpack this week letting him know just how I feel.  My beautiful boy.

I know first hand what a sweet boy he is :) I love the way you honour each of your boys here and there on your blog and with your cards :) How precious :) I love the way he challenges himself already. We are learning about the virtue of excellence this week at school and this month schoolwide...I think Jonathon already practices this and then some!! You must be sooo proud :) LOVE his card and the way you are working magic with those spray mists :) Fun little burlap!! Worth the Archivers trip ;) Hope you had a fabulous time with the ladies last night...look forward to hearing about it...safe travels home :) TGIF!!!

  10. Fifth grade is definitely a big transition year. My oldest is a fifth grader this year. The first day of school it was funny to see him in the front of the bus-now the youngest, versus being a big fourth grader sitting in the back of the bus last year! Thankfully, Will has adjusted well to the big change and it sounds like your Jonathan is doing the same!
    I just love that little strip of burlap and buttons on your card, Lynn! Have a great weekend, girl! :)
