What I enjoyed about yesterday's field trip was the opportunity to watch my son interact with his peers. I am probably going to sound biased, I am of course, but, my son is growing up to be a great kid. He really is. He gets along well with his friends, he is confident, he is well liked and most of all, he is nice. I was very proud of him, watching him with his friends. At this point in his childhood, I feel like my husband and I have done a good job in raising a good person. Isn't that what all parents work hard for?
I don't want to make him sound perfect. He was full of mischief, practical jokes forever on his mind, he did participate in normal 11 year old behavior. But, like I said, it was normal. Tonight, as I write this post, I am confident in saying that I am very proud of my son. He is growing up to be fine man.
