Indulge me in some fatherly boasting for a moment.
Our son Andrew (College Freshman) made the Dean’s list at Baylor after his first semester, thanks to a 3.7 GPA. In addition, he’s been invited to a couple of honor societies whose greek names I can’t recall. And he’s way smarter than me.
Our daughter Molly (HS Senior) has received two great scholarships from the college that she hopes (I think) to attend. She earned them on the strength of an extremely strong academic career in high school and great overall leadership and service.
I also got to listen to her worship band practice on Tuesday – she plays bass, keyboard, and sings – and I had forgotten how good she is.
Our daughter Bethany (HS Sophomore) just made the honor roll, just got her braces off (yes!) and has been working her tush off all year on her academics. She’s amazing. She also is practicing for a mini-play of some sort in Theater (she loves Theater), in which she’ll be playing . . . get this . . . Gollum.
Our son Blake (Fifth grade) just got promoted up to the top team (Red Team: Legend) in his select soccer club, U11 Dallas Texans – Houston Division. This is a big honor, as he had been playing on the 2nd red pool team (Tiempo). We’ll miss that team a lot, but are also excited for the upcoming games with his new team. He also played on the DTHD U11 red team that won the DTA Elite Invitational in Austin this past weekend.
Great job kids! You get it all from your mother . . .
