Luke came home with his report card today and this momma is THRILLED!!! I cant beleive how far Luke has come in such a short time! It truly is mind blowing! He has become an amazing son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and in such a short time. He is an amazing student and his character in school is incredible! I love his work ethic and self motivation. Those qualities are qualities I would love to see more of in myself! :) He got 9 (yes I said NINE!!!) A's and 1 B.... WAHHOOOOO! How about them apples for a child that just one year ago and 10 1/2 had no language or education! Take that research that says the window of language learning is hard to open after 5 years old. HA we ripped the window right off the sill baby!!!!!! My boy is learning and learning well! He was literally adding single digits in September and now just yesterday came home multiplying fractions and doing perimeter and such! The boy knocks my socks off! He came home the other day with a Science test that he got a 21 out of 22 on and it was all about Conducters and Insulators and Magnets and such and I was like.. '"ummm you dont really get this stuff you have 1 year of language under your belt.... " Well needless to say I was schooled by my boy as he gave me a huge lesson on how those worked! HA I love his brain! I love his heart and I love that boy! Just wanted to give a shout of praise for my boy!!!!!! GO LUKE!!!
Here is the precious report card!!!!!!!!!
- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.
