A Good Report

The other day I was opening the mail, and amongst all the Christmas cards from family & friends, I saw there was an envelope from the Bible College Kyle, my oldest son is attending. This is his first year of college, he graduated from High School last year.

I said "uh oh, this could be your report card!" I opened it and starred in amazement. Now Kyle is very smart, but has always been an average student. Too social to spend time studying. I can't tell you how many phone calls and notes I've gotten from his teachers over the years, telling me Kyle is not living up to his potential academically. He's too talkative in class (I have no idea where he got that from!) And doesn't take school seriously.

I announced standing in the kitchen; "You Got Straight A's!" Zach, my other and much more studious son walked by and said "You sure that's Kyles and not my report card?" You can always count on a brother for support! Zach has pretty much always had straight A's. Kyle, not so much! We all couldn't believe it, and celebrated together! I even hung Kyles report card on the refrigerator! I knew I had to Blog about this milestone in my child's life!

I guess that old saying better late, than never applies here. If the very first time a child get straight A's isn't until they start college, it's worth the wait! I think taking classes of his choosing, things that interest him, and move him toward his goal of someday being a Youth Pastor is what make the difference. He took some Theology classes & Public Speaking.

Way to go Kyle, we're so proud of you!
Keep it up!
