20, A's, 1, B and a "Jack Ass"

Yep, that sums up the report card season in our house. The crew came home today with the quarterly reports. Lieber and the crew were very excited. All that hard work and study is paying off.

The fun part of getting to hear about the grades and seeing the teacher comments is the joy on my wife's face. She works very hard with the kids on preparing for school. I constantly joke that the second time through school makes the work much easier.

So, the final tally is twenty A's, and one B between three kids and a very proud spouse. Pretty impressive. I am thrilled to see the level of accomplishment and it was fun to discuss the results.

Then we get to hear about my handy work with the kids. Our youngest, in a fit of rage at the seven year old used her new word for the day in a sentence. Of course, this is where I am credited with the development of our children. Not the good looks, the athletic ability or the academic prowess.

Yep, that is what she said! And yes, when asked by her mother where she learned that word. You guessed it, "Daddy". Kids say the darndest things! Yes, I did use that word in a sentence as I drove a few days ago. And my sweet darling was riding in her car seat behind me. I explained that is not a word she or I should use. Lesson learned.

A great evening was had by all.

I'm sure you must have misunderstood what my sweet little grandaughter said.

On our trip I saw a bumper sticker that read, "My daughter gets bad grades...but she can really work a stripper pole."

Congrats to your good kids :)
