I am glad for him because you know how boys are, he likes to excel, and I am glad for me because it just gives me that little bit of encouragement that I need every now and again.
Kate, (our teacher and sister in the Lord who comes up from Dublin City every couple of months or so to help me and give me advice etc) came to visit us on Monday. We showed her some of Sean's work and also went through the maths book for next year. It takes quite a jump between 4th and 5th class and so needs that little bit of extra attention from us. She is happy with his progress. I like having her call because she is a source of knowledge, strength and encouragement to me and although I am more comfortable with my abilities in teaching Sean, I still need accountability and advice, so thanks Kate!
