Eon's Math Benchmark Score

Yesterday Eon told me he got the highest score on the Math Benchmark Test.  I was SOOOO happy!! He got 19 out of 20 questions right. And, got the highest score for all of fifth grade! This is huge for him, because he was doing horribly in math. He got a C on his last report card. And a D and an F on Progress Reports.  I told him if he got his grades up (no C's, only B's and A's) on his report card, I would get him a surprise. Well with 0 money right now, this was all I could do. Some candy an two pokemon card packs. But, I tried to make it special for him.. :D

I made Garlic Beef Enchiladas- Eon's Choice- for dinner. :)   And bragged about him to his Dad and brother.  

And I crocheted him a Pokeball. (Gasp?!!! I actually crocheted something?!!)   It was fun.  Then I showed him all the crocheted Pokemon characters on Ravelry. Then he started browsing Ravelry, to see what other characters he could find. Lol.  He put a couple in my favorites. (Maybe for his birthday? Some of them are huge..)  He was googling pokeballs and all pokemon things online. I didn't know there were so many different pokeballs, or pokemon characters.  I think it's funny that he likes pokemon now. Seems like it was big when I was in high school.  He was showing his Dad all his pokemon cards. His Dad said "When did you start liking Pokemon?"  "On Monday."  We all started laughing.  (Guess you had to be there...)  :P      One of his friends gave him a Pokemon card, and that was it.
Another funny (not, after a while) thing...  Both the dogs think the Pokeball is theirs... They stand in front of Eon (they know he has it behind his back), and make all kinds of noise..  Lolol
I used this Pokeball pattern.

Thank you, Mimi. It makes me happy that he still likes things I make him, too.
