I am not one to brag often about my kids because I don’t want people to think that I think my kids are better than theirs. But since this is my blog I can brag a little about my son, Josh.
Monday night, we had parent teacher conferences at school. I know when I was a kid I never told my mom and dad about them because I didn’t want them to talk to my teachers. Josh, however, let us know. I went to all of his teachers and they all raved about Josh. They said he was a respectful young man, well behaved and did not cause them an ounce of trouble. The one comment that was shared by at least three of the teachers was, “I wish I had a room full of students like Josh!”
I am thankful for Josh. He is an incredible young man. He is the kind of kid that is comfortable with who he is and is not moved by the leading of the crowd. In fact, he tries to lead the crowd. In his second semester of his first year in public school, last year, Josh started a Bible Club that meets once a week. He has formed a leadership team and is beginning to develop a plan to make sure the Bible club continues after he graduates.
I would like to take credit for how Josh is turning out, but I can tell you that I feel inadequate as a father and really believe it is the hand of God on his life. Even through our flawed parenting, God has given us a godly son. Thank you Jesus!
One more thing: Josh’s Algebra teacher asked if we had any more children coming up that are as good as him. I had to tell her, “I don’t know about my other one, only time will tell.” She acts too much like me!
We are proud of you son!
