Two down, one to go.

Kit made the honor roll. Talk about a turnaround. He was struggling so hard with his math and reading comrehension this past year but his first quarter report came in and he's on the honor roll with all As and Bs. He's also in good spirits and his sense of humor has blossomed (he always had one, but how far can you go on knock-knock jokes?). The meds have really helped but there's more to it. Like Tio, he's responding to positive reinforcement (trading rewards for good behavior) and he doesn't want to create drama with his friends any more (last year he loved to stir it up). I think he's getting enough satisfaction from what's going on around without having to stir up more. It feels like his maturity has caught up to his age.

A good thing to reach before the froth of puberty sets in.
