Celebrating Peter

This kid is so awesome!  We just had parent teacher conference with Peter's teachers and he is doing great!  He is above level on reading and math and basically everything.  The most fun part of the meeting was when Peter got to come in and show off his Spanish skills.  Senor Boud would ask him different things in Spanish and Peter would respond in Spainish.  Senor Boud seemed very pleased with Peter and his desire and excitement in speaking Spanish.  It was fun to watch him interact with his teacher.  And Peter definitely understands what he is learning in school and wants to learn even more.  Such an awesome kid.  After he went back to class I went to blow him a kiss before leaving to come home.  He ran after me in the hall, with tears in his eyes, telling me that he wanted to be with me longer and that he wanted me to stay.  Such a sweet little boy and so dear to my heart.
So, we came home from school and served Peter some of his favorite food.  Then he requested that we watch Rudy, one of his most favorite movies of all times.  Now you know why he loves football so much.  It must be noted that my children have never watched the full movie, only the last 30 minutes which is the best part of the movie in our opinion.  By the end of the movie Haley was the only one with dry eyes.  Yes, all three boys and mom were teary and talking about working hard and wishes and success.  It was awesome!
Now we are going to build a fire in the fireplace, one of the things Peter loves.  He loves to play Harry Potter, with his glasses and wand, and watch the magic of the fire.
We are so proud of him, of all that he has learned and how hard he has been working to get so far in school.  Bien hecho, Peter!!!
