Drama Teen had been struggling with algebra the last quarter and had been getting up early in the mornings to get to school so she could work with the teacher. A true sacrifice for a teen who clings to every second of "in bed" time she can every morning. Plus she's been asking for help from Mom and Dad. The "and Dad" is significant as she absolutely hates having to get his help on anything, but specifically when it's math. As she puts it, "Dad has a math degree, I don't." Final grades arrived in yesterday's mail. DT cringed when I showed her the envelope. It wasn't so bad, in fact her algebra grade exceeded even her expectations. She asked if the grades were worthy of a trip to Jareds'.
In my book there's not much that's not worthy of a trip to Jareds'. After dinner and My Guy's bike ride, we piled in the car and drove over. I got my favorite,
a carmel concrete (carmel mixed with soft serve ice cream). My Guy got his favorite,
She had half of hers eaten before I could get my camera out.
So soft serve from Jareds' and having a teen who will put forth the extra effort when needed are my favorite things this week. To be honest, DT is pretty much always a favorite thing, well at least until I look in her bedroom.
