Counting my blessings

Can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted. I need to get better. 🙂 I graduated and I passed both of my state exams. Now I just wait to get certified and of course get a job. I’ve been applying for several districts in the area.

Jacob is nearly done with the 5th grade. Thank God! I’m really hoping this move will benefit him personally and academically. He’s still having trouble with the kids at school. It’s hard when you know no one with the same issues and struggles. I mean, we know people, but no one within the “let’s have some coffee and cry together” kind of thing.

His tics are getting worse, but I think it’s mostly the anticipation of moving into middle school. Ahh, the worries of middle school. Those kids are terrifying to me, too!

He’s graduating next week, and I couldn’t be prouder. He’s not an A and B student, he never had perfect attendance, he’s got focus problems, and of course he can’t sit still to save his life. BUT you know what he does have? He has a heart of gold, a personality that takes a hold of others’ hearts, and the will and drive to be the best possible version of himself.

He fought to survive, and we are both still fighting to survive in this crazy world of ours. It’s a win for us because we have one another and I’m so very blessed to be Jacob’s mom. The best title in the world. ♥
