    My oldest (13) has brought his grades up to mostly As, a few Bs.
    Youngest (12) makes all As, and is practicing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in Dm on the piano for a little mini-concert @ school. He chose this piece to learn, is very excited about it, has been working on it for about a year now (he likes the different and opposing movements).

    My three year old son is learning to read. We have the homeschoolers book how to teach your child to read in 100 lessons and he is flying through the lessons. I actually have to tell him it is time to stop. He doesn't like writing them yet. But I don't hold a pen/pencil properly so I have been trying to get his Dad to do teach him hand placement.

    My daughter who is handicapped at the age of 2&1/2 is successfully using her walker, when she wants too. And I'm just proud of her for being a live. Former 24 weeker, at 1lb. Nobody thought she would make it.

    I love my kids!

    13 yr old son made 2 B's, the rest A's. He is my football player. My 11 yr old all A's all year. He is my soccer player.
    But even better, they hold the door for me, pull out my chair for me when we go out to eat, they are sweet and helpful with their elderly grandmother, and I love them so! (Yes I know it will all change when they are big teenagers, I'm enjoying while I can!)
    Yes, they do grow up too fast!
    Great thread, I love hearing about everyones kids!
