January is a good month for Rienstra men. First Philip got Student of the Month, and now Jacob joins him on the dais. Who knows, maybe Ron will win a bloggie.
But Jacob certainly deserved the praise. In giving out the award, his teacher remarked how even when he was very ill last month (3 days with a fever over 102), he e-mailed his concern over missing a deadline for a book report project. "This shows how diligent he is about his schoolwork," she said. We might say it shows how the little guy tends toward being obsessive. Not that we'd know anything ourselves about obsessiveness. Anyway, we sure love him.
