...brag, but might I please just be a proud Mom on here for some moments?
The last time I did this on Facebook it backfired...so I thought I would just do it on my blog instead.
If you know me, you know how proud of my boys I am. They are respectable, polite little gentlemen, and their amazing Dad has taught them those things. I guess I should say that I need to brag on him, too. They treat me like a queen, and most of the time, are very courteous to me.
It takes a strong, confident man to teach four sons that, and I could not be more proud.
Back to the kids.
Yesterday after school, Graham and Drew got in, and when I asked how their day was, Graham answered that his was "great" (for the second day in a row, I might add.). When I asked why, he told me that Mr. Seek, his band instructor, had approached him at school that day and asked Graham how good he thought he was at playing percussion. Graham answered, "I'm not going to say that I'm the best, but I feel confident that I am good."
Mr. Seek told Graham that he'd been watching him for a long time now, and he completely agreed with him.
After saying that, he told Graham that an eighth grader had to back out of an upcoming band trip to Six Flags over St. Louis. This is a very long, quick one day trip in which they will play for some function, then enjoy the park...which I think is closed to the public that day for some band competitions that are being held there. Anyway, an eighth grader had to back out at the last minute and Mr. Seek needed a fill in. So he invited Graham.
I am so proud of him...what an honor to be invited to an eighth grade only event! Needless to say, we're going to let him go. He's so excited, because most of his friends are in eighth grade.
Proud Mama moment number two: Drew played awesome as a defensive player today during his lacrosse game...against a very skilled team. An "A" team. He was recognized by the coach during halftime, and after the game he was awarded one of the game balls telling him "Great d".
I am so proud of them!
Instead of putting all this on Facebook, I put this instead:
"All generous giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with Whom there is no variation or the slightest hint of change." James 1:17, New English Translation.
Love to all.
