I can't believe it. My little man is growing up...it really makes me sad. He is so stinkin' smart that he amazes me with the things he knows. He finished the 1st grade and earned all 4's. Which is strange I know! They don't grade like they used to with A's, B's, C's...oh no, it is with numbers now! So, a 3 means that you are at grade level, a 2 means you are struggling a bit, a 1 means you are really struggling and a 4 means you are ABOVE grade level. Cooper earned 4's in every category! I am not trying to brag, but well, I guess I am! Cooper is so smart and he makes me so proud! When a 1st grader is done with 1st grade, they are suppose to be on a reading level of 16-18 and Cooper is on a 28! I can't believe it, it just seems that things come so easily to him. (I am going to have a wake up call when Charlee gets into school - she is like me and doesn't catch on as easy, Cooper is like Mike and well, we all know he is stinkin' smart too!)
So Cooper, I want you to know how proud I am of you. I know you worked hard this school year and learned all that you could. I love how you always want to learn something new and you never hold back. You love to learn and understand the why's and how's of everything. You may be the littlest kid in your grade, but you definitely have one of the biggest brains! I hope you never let you size get you down because you are an amazing little man. You have a friendly personality and your are so gentle and kind to everyone. You never have a mean thing to say about others and I know that is why everyone wants to be your friend. Keep the love you have for learning and never lose that desire. You are a smart, loving kid and I love you too Little Man!
