I have to brag...

This is my middle school son and he is amazing!  This happened in the past two weeks:
  • Connar finished his first year playing club level soccer and he was faced with another round of tryouts for next season this spring.  Connar attended three different tryouts, playing his hardest, and was invited to play for his first choice club and coach.
  • Connar decided last year that he was going to play trumpet in the middle school band.  {I have to admit that I was bracing myself for a year of headaches!} Not only is he on his way to becoming an accomplished trumpet player, he also picked up the French Horn.  His band marched in the junior parade in our city a couple of weeks ago and won their division!  This resulted in an invitation to march in the big, deal parade this weekend.  {It's the first time in 15 years a middle school from his district has been invited to march with the big boys!}
  • Not many kids begin to thrive academically their first year of middle school {trust me...I've been teaching in middle school for 15 years} That's not true of Connar...he is absolutely blooming in middle school.  Yesterday we received an invitation to join the National Honor Society!  Holy Cow!  
I am so unbelievably lucky to have this kiddo.
I hope your weekend is amazing...thanks for letting me brag!
