My son graduates Summa Cum Laude!
Oh my God! I was so excited when I opened the mail yesterday and saw the notice from Tim's college that he'll be graduating Summa Cum Laude because his GPA is higher than 3.8! I knew this kid was smart, but he was always so laid back about school and grades. If he got Honors in grade school or high school that was cool, but if he didn't... no big deal! He once told me, when he was in 5th grade, and he came home with a 100 on his Science test, "Ya know, Mom? If you study before a test, you get better grades!" DUH!!! I didn't know whether to hug him or smack him!
I suppose making your kids pay their own way through college does something to them (at least to my kids). They all did so much better in college than they ever did in high school!
Gina graduated Cum Laude and also earned an award for highest GPA in her Department! Dani also is doing very well! Her first semester in college, she earned a 3.82 GPA. These kids are blowing my mind!!!
