Conferencing with the Parents

Parent/Teacher Conferences have come and gone and they were a blast! I really love meeting with each family (100%!) and discussing the progress of their children. I really love watching families interacting with one another.

Most impressive this time was a dad in uniform that stopped in from work to meet his wife and son for the conference. He got paged toward the end and started to head out, but he stopped and said, "I'll see you later, Son." Then he left the doorway and strode over to his boy, wrapped his arms around him and kissed him on the cheek. He said "goodbye" to his wife and left.

So glad there are men who still kiss their ten and eleven year old boys. I'm sure they'll grow out of it soon enough, but this was a beautiful thing to witness.
