Forrest’s 1st grade teacher asked each parent to write a letter about their child, so that she can reflect on this often and teach them better. Here is my writing:
Forrest is a smart, caring, compassionate and energetic young man who loves art (drawing and painting), mine craft on IPad and Xbox, soccer, and cooking. He likes to make stuff and wants to be an engineer. He is our best helper at home. He cleans dishes, mopping floors, organizing his room, helping and playing with his younger brother Nathan (when he is in good mood, -:)
He is not good at expressing his feelings, I wish he would be more talkative about his mood, especially when he is upset and angry. A lot of times he was doing nice things but I misunderstood him because he didn’t tell me and I couldn’t guess it.
He loves drawing and painting starting from preschool, he is very patient when he is doing art, every piece has to be perfect. He began to play soccer in the spring for a morning with MTSU soccer ladies, then he took a soccer camp in the summer and signed for Murfreesboro Soccer Club this fall. He is a good defense and I would like him to try different positions. He has improved his skills quickly.
He writes really neat, when he was before 2, he liked to play alphabets instead of numbers. He likes to write when he has plenty to share. He is really stubborn when I say he is wrong about something, especially about any knowledge that I have different opinion with him. He strongly believes the teacher and himself, rather than me.
He likes to travel and eat outside, he likes pizza a lot. He is a good brother to Nathan, always watches him, but to his brother, sometimes it means annoying, 🙂
He is a great kid and I need to learn to be more patient with him. He is a picky eater, I wish he can eat a variety of food, especially vegetables and fruits.
His middle name is Samuel, and Nathan’s David, I wish he will be wise as Prophet Samuel and guide his little brother as David. His Chinese name is Zhien, it means knowing God’s grace, and his brother’s is Xinen, meaning to trust in God’s grace.
