Braggin on B-train

I have to share Brandon's big news for the week. He was chosen as a "Terrific Kid" in his class at school. He got a certificate and bumper sticker (which he promptly stuck on his scooter) and got to be on TV during his school's morning announcements. I am so proud of him! He has come a LOOOONG way this year.

Way to go, B-train!

At the beginning of the year, all we ever heard were negative comments about his behavior, but here is a little snippet from an e-mail I got from his teacher this week:

"I have been very pleased with Brandon's behavior. He has really tried hard to follow all our rules (and I know that sometimes he finds it difficult!). He always works hard and as you know his reading is phenomenal! He is enthusiastic about everything we do, and has something interesting to tell me everyday. He really has channeled his 'over' enthusiasm that we saw at the very beginning into something positive. I am very proud of him, and I know you must be too!"

I bet his teacher could add immensely to the "Out of the Mouths of Babes" entries each month with the "interesting" things he tells her every day. makes me wonder how much she knows about us. And how much of that is true.

Good on ya, B! I bet you're so proud. It's hard being that smart and keeping your mind still, so good for Brandon. Also, just thought I'd let you know that I changed my blogger address. I know it's a bit paranoid, but I didn't like having my last name out there. So now it's, if you want to change your links!

Congratulations, Brandon.
Next thing you know, your TV appearance will be on "American Idol". We'd vote for you.

Branon Trey, he's our man!
He always does the best he can!
He's smart and funny
and does great in school
all in all he's really cool.
When he grows up he wants to be
a NASCAR player for all to see.
We hope he moves out West some day
So he can put that notion far away!
We love his mom and his dad a bit!
And always love to see little sister Whit.
Thanks for sharing this Terrifid Kid
And telling us about the great things he done did!

Cool! I'm sure you are MUCH relieved that things have turned around:) That's cool that his school makes such a big deal out of the "terrific kid of the week" aware - I bet Brandon went home feeling like a million bucks!
