Progress reports came out yesterday and after Hell Year, Michael has straight A's.  For now, he has come out of the funk he's been in since his dad died 3 years ago.  I have prayed and prayed for this child.  Hopefully he's back on the right track.

Jeremy also got his grades and his are all A's too.  He hasn't had the problems that Mike has had.  I think that losing kevin at such a young age(8) has affected him differently.

I AM JUST SO THANKFUL THAT WE HAD A GREAT DAY111

Elizabeth, I know what you mean.  Mikey failed miserably last year after losing his dad...  Didn't even try.  Hated the new school, which was temporary, and hated everything about the county we were in, including the friends and people.  Geesh.

This year, he's liking his new school and is making friends.  I'm so happy.  I haven't seen "my" son since last November when his dad went into the hospital.  It's so good to have them functioning.  I'm very proud of your boys.  They say us widows hit the ground running as we have much to take care of but we still grieve....  The little ones or tweens or teens seem to sit on all that emotion and it rears it's ugly head down the road.  Glad that your boys are turning the grief around.  HUGS

One of the reasons I so happy, is that Mike think everyone blames him for his dad's death.  Kevin was killed in a car accident on his way to get Mike for a Dr.'s appointment. Mike is ADHD.  I was horrified when I found this out from the counselor.  I thought he would blame me because I made the stinking appointment, no he blames himself  because he is ADHD.  This has been a hard fought battle between us.  I can't convnce him that this thought has never crossed my mind.  Actually I have never blamed anbody for the wreck except my husband, he thought he could beat oncoming traffic and make a left turn. He didn't and we all paid for it.   We're finally getting ourselves back together.

I'm glad Michael is doing better and congrats to both of them on their grades.  I lost my father when I was five so I know how hard it can be.

OMG, that's gotta be hard.  Poor baby.... blaming himself.  Geesh. Mikey blames Camel filters for his dad's demise.  Who am I to say it wasn't??
