This is one of those moments where I really miss having Mom and Dad around. Praising my children for their good efforts to their Grandparents is an easy thing - they always respond with pride. Not exactly sure how others might respond, but in their absence, I needed to share. My kids have worked really hard and I am proud of them. I don't know how often a parent gets to see 4 straight "A" report cards, so I have to cherish the moment.
