He’s a middle schooler now. That’s going to take some getting used to! I could not be prouder of this crazy kid. He is smart as a whip, earning awards of excellence in every single subject, scoring the highest reading level in the grade, and earning the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence. But even more than his academic achievement, I am proud of the incredible person he has become, of his silliness and his kindness, of his persistence and his convictions. I love the fact that he can talk non-stop for hours and that he has the confidence to be goofy (see the video of his graduation exit below!) I love that our house is constantly full of his sweet friends. And I really love the fact that I don’t seem to embarrass him yet.
So, on to bigger and better things! He is ready. And it’s happening even if I’m not ready, so I guess I better get on board!
