At school, the boys have struggled - that's an understatement. The number of bad behavior reports from the principal in the past 2 weeks alone almost exceeds the past 2 months combined. Please pray that a miracle would occur and my boys would decide that it's a good idea to at least try to respect their teachers and principal.
In more uplifting news.... the boys just keep reading, reading, reading. They read so much that several are now getting in trouble at school for reading instead of doing math or whatever assignment is being presented. This is a "problem" that I can put up with. They are currently into the Big Nate series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, professional soccer player biographies, and SpongeBob books.
Here is my sweet boy after he finished his 6th Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. He has now read every single book that has been translated into Spanish in the series. A year ago, I would have told you that it'd be a miracle if he finished one of these books in 6th months but he's far, far exceeded my expectations and then some.
Please pray for patience, clear communication, and healing for the boys as they try to process past abuse and neglect.
The boys have a new soccer season starting next week and I'm excited to return to my post as resident soccer mom of a lot of kids.
