MY JAKOB

what a sweet boy, yet so mean at the same time. there is a little girl in his class that apparently rubs him the wrong way or maybe he thinks she's cute, i don't know! anyways- i keep getting reports in his daily conduct report that he is hitting and scratching his friends. when i ask him about it he tells me every time that it was Angelica. poor little girl is going home with bruises and scratches almost everyday. his class has a 5 smiley face conduct method. he has been coming home with atleast 2-3 of those smiley faces turned upside down. one day all 5 were sad faces. i was not happy and explained this to jakob. so the next day after many talks and signing discussions, i sent him off to school with a morning prayer. that day he returned home from school with FIVE smiley faces and a report that said "jakob had a good day and at the end of the day he was so proud of himself and signed to his teacher- mom will be proud!" OH HOW PROUD I AM!!
