Noah Made the Honor Roll!

child with down syndrome honor roll

This morning as wife was going through Noah’s backpack before he headed off to school for the day we came across the above picture! Noah made the HONOR ROLL!!! 

Now, we’re not the sort of family that puts stickers on the back of their car proclaiming that their child made the honor roll (please don’t be offended if you do!) but we will put it on our blog…because this is awesome!!!

One reason it’s awesome is that because Noah has an intellitucal disability he works so hard to achieve goals and milestones that come much easier for other children. I am proud of Noah and for how hard he works. He works hard! I’m also thankful for all of the teachers and support staff that helps Noah work towards his goals.

In case you’re curious, Noah goes to a public school and is in the general education classroom for some of the day, and is pulled out for some more focused time other parts of the day. The staff (and his friends) really love and care for him, and it’s a blessing!

I know parents have a wide variety of different thoughts on schooling for their child, but so far we’re glad to have chosen the public school system for Noah.

Noah, I’m so proud of you, and love you so much! I’m also proud of the way you #PROVETHEMWRONG every day!
