Patrick Brag! Fx4

I'm dedicating my entry to Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta to my son, Patrick, because I'm so proud of him!

Now, I already new he was a great kid, but yesterday, his 5th grade teacher called me out of the blue just to tell me how amazing she thought he was. She said how great it was to have him in the classroom and what a good influence he is on the other kids,what a hard worker he is, etc. etc. It totally made my day! I'm going to get Patrick a special reward for getting such a glowing report from school!!

Here he is--I like this pic of Patrick and the colors look so bright!
Happy Friday!

I am sorry but getting a compliment on your children is better than the best compliment you could receive on yourself:-) I usually ride that joy train for days after that happens:-) Congratulation on yours:-) That's awesome:-)

Thats great! You must be on cloud 9. What a great teacher too.. to ring you and tell you that.

Becky said...

What a cutie! I have a 5th grade boy too. Isn't it great when others tell you how great you already know your kids are!

Teri said...

That is excellent news! I also got a call from my daughter's teacher this week telling me how great she is doing in class. I love THOSE kinds of calls, hands down.

Congrats! I think he deserves another ice cream. :-)

Did you cry? I think I would have lost it! So seldom do people go out of their way to share the good stuff....

So handsome too!

Yes, doesn't it just make you feel all warm & fuzzy inside when someone praises your kids?

That is a great pic of him!!! I just wanna pince those cheeks...which I'm sure he would not like at all....but he and they are so cute.

Way to go, Patrick!!! Great Job!!!

Annikke said...

You should be proud!
That picture is really great! He is adorable (is that ok to call a 5th grader adorable? Maybe I should say handsome?)

manic mariah said...

That is so sweet! I love when teachers go out of their way to do things like that! Congrats Patrick, I know your Mom taught you everything you know.

Mamahut said...

That is so nice. I have only gotten 1 phone call from the school that was good...ever. Yay Patrick!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I love calls like that! I recently got a call about my 15 year old son getting in trouble for talking too much in class....but the teacher ended up bragging about what a great kid he is and how much he enjoys having him in class so it ended up a positive! lol

Jen B. said...

Isn't it great to receive a call from school just to let you know how great your child is doing? I got one of those about Hannah & at first I was thinking she was in trouble! LOL It was one of the nicest phone calls I've ever received!
Patrick sure is a cutie!
