We made it through the first week of fourth grade with Jack. I'm so glad that he listens to us most of the time. We even had our first field trip this week. We went to the humane society and learned about all the services they offer and the processes that the animals go through to be adopted. We learned a lot about nonverbal communication and what the animals are trying to say. We will volunteer there in the fall and collect donations. I'm slowly but surely teaching my child manners and to be less selfish. I want him to want to give back and help others. I do it all the time. I just hope I rub off on Jack.
