Today’s Victory: My kids owned the school day

The boys had a great day at school today, despite the way it was started. In my mind, that’s a total victory. 

Elliott had a great day as well and hasn’t had another issue with the kid that was bullying him last year. This of course, is super awesome as well and I’m so grateful for that.  

I should also point out that Emmett received the results of his state testing and not only did he pass with flying colors, he passed at the accelerated level. This means he will be able to move on to fourth grade next year. 
Unfortunately, he has to take the test again in the Spring, even though it won’t count for him. The way we test kids in school is ridiculous in this country.
