Just getting on long enough to say that my son made honors for the third quarter in a row, and his second high honors quarter.

I am so proud of him, and yes, I told him that multiple times yesterday. He works so hard and tries so hard, and it's wonderful to give him that sort of praise and recognition.

And, of course, the fact that we buy him a video game pretty much whenever he makes honors helps. ;)

I think the most valuable thing that I've learned in my life has been that you need to encourage kids in the direction THEY want to go in, not the direction YOU want them to go. Liam consistently strives for excellence in everything he does, and I think it's because he knows that we support him in his interests and dreams.

I'm so excited for him.

That's awesome.

Yup, it's our job as parents to support our kids and their interests. If those happen to coincide with our interests, great. But if not? They know what they want to do and will do it with or without our support.

way to go Liam!!!!! it's so important to let kids choose who they are--anything else is unfair and unfulfilling for just about everyone!
