I write with great pride and joy that Finnegan was student of the month for January! His teacher picks one student each month that exemplifies the quality/characteristic they are focusing on that month or a student who has gone above and beyond. Here are the words she wrote in their weekly newsletter today:
Student of the Month
Finnegan Thomas is our January Student of the Month. Finnegan has shown a great understanding of goal setting and accuracy this month. He has shown this in his thoughtful dream and wish statements and his honesty in his self-evaluations. In addition, Finn's handwriting almost always receives an "Awesome Work!" seal of approval due to his diligence. In the morning, Finn is often the last to finish writing his sign-in simply because he takes care and pride in the handwriting that goes into his signature. Finn's work in January and throughout the year has been accurate, insightful and goal oriented. For these reasons he is deserving of our January Student of the Month.
What parent wouldn't love to hear such good things being said about your child. I hope these characteristics continue to be important to him as his school work gets tougher and more involved the older he gets!
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
