I am proud of Carson. School has always been a struggle for him and one day (I need to get his permission first) I will discuss his trials with learning. But long story short, learning is very difficult for him. He can't retain information very well and has to be taught something about a million times before it sticks with him.
He has tried really hard this year and this quarter at school he received an award. Going to the assembly and watching a group of kids receive this award along with Carson was very rewarding - for both of us!
