Spicer had a rough day Monday but Mrs. James noted on his report that he had really turned around his afternoon.  So I really tried to stress how he should make sure to make Tuesday like Monday afternoon.  The drive to Kidz company puts my tummy in knots.  It get worried that Spicer will have had a rough day.  I was even more worried yesterday since Monday had been so rough.   I walked in the door and Spicer was playing with Legos.  "Mommy I met all my goals!"  He ran to me and I gave him a big hug!!! Not only did Spicer meet his goals but he made 90%.   This morning when we were getting ready for School he said he wanted to make 100%.  I gave him a hug and told him I just wanted him to do his best and I loved him no matter what.   I love you Spicer.  I dedicate the wonderful poem "Oh the Places You'll Go" to Spicer.  Here are a few of my fav lines.  

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
by the incomparable Dr. Seuss

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

You’ll look up and down streets. Look’em over with care. About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.” With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street.

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!

You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed. You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead. Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)

Kid, you’ll move mountains!
So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ale Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!
