let me back up a bit.
see, last year, we had lots of problems with herself. discipline, academic - problems. she was capable of the work, but refused to do it. she aced all the tests, just because she could, but getting her to do the homework was an exercise in futility.
so, over the summer, we put her on ritalin. that was the best decision we ever made!
so, today was report card day. SHE MADE THE A HONOR ROLL. i am ecstatic!
we went out for dinner to celebrate. *g*
